You will find the complete Owner's Manual for the Vivicam 8018 online at the Vivitar website - { User Manual.pdf.} Being a PDF file, you can print the whole thing out if you wish. I didn't get a manual either, but I knew where to find one. A little common sense thinking goes a long ways. EVERYTHING is online these days. Just use a good search engine (Google, Yahoo). and you can find everything online. You don't have to be a computer geek, either, to find what you need. They even have Vivitar drivers online for free download. Hope this helps.

I too had this problem...I found the disk well hidden in the packaging. My disk wouldn't work with Windows XP but worked fine on a Windows Vista and there was the manual. But it wouldn't take pictures to the card. FWIW, don't even bother with this cheap piece of ****. I knew I was getting possibly the cheapest like camera but I did expect it to work - no such luck. I think Vivitar just expects to get you once, and that's it.

Downloading the manual is quite a problem .Is it really 2,600 odd pages long ?I only want a few instructions and diagrams.

Enter 8018 into the search box. When it finds the camera, click on its name. When it tells you about the camera, click Downloads. You should see the manual then. Click on it to begin the download.

It's 52 pages long.
