    Wikipedia or any public library or bookstore are great sources for this kind of information.

    How did the manual not say anything about most of those features? They seem pretty basic to me.

    Have you seen some of the 2 page manuals which come with modern cameras? I think Nikon and Canon's cameras don't cost $1500 the money goes into making the 100+ page manual for them :lmao:

    check the website of the camera, they usually have a lot of basic information.

    Your question is just too involved to be answered in a few short sentences.
