minolta multi-function back for x-700

Bryant Mitchell , Oct 21, 2006; 08:00 p.m.

so... i got this multi-function back, and everything i can find online about it seems that it should totally rock out... only thing i can't find is an actual manual for it. the konica/minolta/sony (did i leave anyone out?) website's have nothing on it. i actually did find one manual online, but it's in german, and, sadly, i don't speak german.

in short... does anybody out here have a manual they can scan and email, fax, photocopy and mail, or let me come over for dinner and read?

thanks in advance!
