I've only had to read the manual with the 7d. All those AF modes were weird and I also wanted to setup the strobe flash thingamaboob.

Other than that I usually just use google and some key words and bam, exactly what I need without reading through a bunch of other nonsense.

I don't read the manual cover-to-cover or anything, usually when I get a new body I'll sit down with the book and skim through all the custom functions and such. I want to make sure I'm getting the most out of the equipment. After that, it's mostly referred to on a case by case basis when I need to know something specific. Nikon's manuals are pretty decent about getting me where I need to be in the book quickly. That's a good thing considering the manual for my D700 is the size of the manuals for both of my old 1D's, plus my 5D II.

God forbid you have to read....yikes!

I've always wondered why people would rather post on a forum looking for an answer rather than open the book, unless it wasn't readily accessible. Mine stays in my back for those "in case" instances.

Every camera I've ever touched, I've read at the very least the Custom Settings/Functions portion.

Saved me a lot of headaches when I first started.

Using non-calibrated monitors to C&C is kind've counterproductive.
