Canon SX620 PDF User Manual
Did you lose or misplace the instruction manual that came with your Canon PowerShot SX620 HS? It happens all too easily, but fortunately Canon makes a soft copy available that you can browse through online, print out, or download (see the pdf file below). It is certainly good practice to carefully familiarize oneself with the many different functionalities and options that the SX620 offers, and the official user manual is without doubt an authoritative and comprehensive source of respective information.
That said, the instruction booklet can be a dry read, so that a dedicated camera guide book from a professional photographer that illustrates the camera's core functions in a real life photography context can be a very helpful complement. Yes, getting one of these camera guides (see here at amazon) would involve an additional expense, but if that book helps to exploit the camera's potential to the full, the (small) additional investment may well be worth it.
In any case, the SX620 is an advanced imaging tool, whose many features merit serious attention. This fixed lens compact camera was revealed to the public on May 11th, 2016, which means that, as of today, the camera is 2461 days old (young?). Given that the SX620 is a relatively recent model, it forms part of the current Canon product line-up.
