Camera maker Nikon has deployed e-Sim Ltd.’s LiveManuals online user manuals at its product information site as interactive online instruction booklets.
Nikon Inc., a leading brand in photography equipment, has deployed Melville, NY-based e-Sim Ltd.’s LiveManuals online user manuals at its product information site www.nikonusa.com. Designed to function as an interactive online instruction booklet, each LiveManuals program offers consumers product demonstrations on how to use the camera, with multiple product views, clickable camera features and a guided tour of the product and its functions.
The Nikon Coolpix 995 and the Coolpix 775 are the first cameras on Nikonusa.com to feature the LiveManuals interactive product simulation. Nikon says this is just the start; it will continue to implement new LiveManuals on NikonUSA.com for more products.
"LiveManuals are a great addition to the site and truly make mastering our cameras much easier for our consumers," said Tracy Mack-Jackson, manager of Internet programs at Nikon. "LiveManuals make learning to use a digital camera a hands-on experience -- it`s like having an expert right there in your living room, walking you through everything you need to know about your camera. This is a great tool for consumers to learn about their new camera and for those who want to see a demonstration of a camera`s features before they go out to make the purchase."
