RTFM = Read The Fine Manual
I realise people don't like to read the manual for their equipment, photography-related or otherwise.
I personally find manuals interesting and lets me know my gear better. Even though I know how to operate something I look out for the manual for things that are not so obvious--if it's a feature I get a pleasant surprise. Otherwise it's good to know what are the potential pitfalls/limitations when using the equipment.
Am I a majority or a minority?
