   But you at least got installation and owner instructions with Sharp,
Perq, Canon. You didn't even get that with the 550. The DOS manual was
FULL of errors and omissions. For example, the entry on the DIR command
didn't even mention the switchs (/A, /W, etc).

   BTW does anyone have any instructions or info on the Canon SX-320
