I've found an excellent plain English Nikon D-80 manual at http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/d80/users-guide/index.htm.

While the manual is good, it does skip the important detail that the "Custom menu" has two forms, "Full" and "Simple." To switch from one to the other, go to the "Set-Up menu" (wrench icon) and enter into  the "CSM/Setup menu."

I'm guessing that this plain English manual here might help users of other Nikon cameras too (ndozo).

Plain english movement

There was an article in the NY Times about a congressman who has introduced a bill (not the first but always needed) to force the government to have rules, regulations and information written in understandable English. I for one am totally against such a rule. If regulations were understandable then society wouldn't need JD and PhD for interpretations. Any poor slob would be able to read and act accordingly. That isn't how I was taught society should operate. You need chiefs and real leaders to be able to read these things. Perhaps, the Plain English bill should be written as:

Hence and fortwit, let it be known to all that documentation, papers and any other disseminated materials not inclusive or exclusive of agencies within the Federal Government shall be written, printed, published and otherwise made available to at least two persons of at least both sexes and of ages both major and minor, but otherwise limited by Clause 6.82 of Bill 5607.2007 which clearly states what should not be construed to ........

Of course, for commercial interests, plain english is good for business. I'm glad you found a useful manual.
