A user guide is a book or a document which is provided with each and every appliance or thing to guide the buyer. It is written by a technical writer who aims to instruct you the uses of that product. It is mostly recommended to read the user manual before using the product for the very first time especially when it is an electric appliance like washing machines. Camera manuals are very necessary for the packing of the camera as there are too many functions of the camera which is very hard to explain on the spot of buying. It plays a big role in product packaging and if the packaging does not include that, you should ask for that. So, you don’t need to ask very petty things from the technician.
There are lots of benefits using or reading the user manual before using the actual product. Here are some most common benefits.

Camera manuals are important as no technician can be called for making you understand the features of the camera. Reading manuals can save a lot of time. High voltage electric goods should be carefully checked. Writing of good manual by a skilled technical writer is very important.
Avoids misuse of product: most of the customers don’t read any document before using and this can be harmful sometimes. A user manual reading is very important in the case of products which can cause some serious injury or damage. Safety is very important thus there are also some stickers on manuals and products which indicate some signs. You obviously don’t want to make your new product damage in its first use.
All the information at one place: User manuals consist all the required information like uses, benefits, do’s and don’ts’. An engineer or technician cannot tell you each and everything about the product so; user manuals are the best option.
