No luck but thank you for the effort.

Anyone else? I just sold this camera to a non technical person and I want to help him out.

Thanks,

Evidently, these cameras were very popular in Australia.. I have two, and a manual (which I can scan, but not immediately). Just another word of warning... I use a cable release to run and operate stop motion animation with my 514XLs, and the trigger is a weak part of the design. One of the cameras triggers is stuck now, rendering the camera useless. The other has shown symptoms of the same seizure beginning.

Otherwise, it's a lovely little camera... mine have been underwater, strapped to a shopping trolley... in the shower (in splash housing)... all sorts of neat places. The wide-angle macro setting is a real corker on this cam. :) email me if you'd like me to scan the manual for you.

Don't forget http://www.super8.no/manuals.html

The 514XL manual isn't there but there is the 514XL-S (the sound version which has exposure lock, sound, and 24fps) and the 310XL which is the same as the 514XL but with a smaller zoom.
