I have compressed the scanned manual with both .jpg and .DjVu.   As can be seen by the above filesizes, DjVu has a much better compression ratio than .pdf.

For those unfamiliar with DjVu, you'll need a viewer to open DjVu files and you can obtain free Open Source viewer software that works standalone as well as integrating with both Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.

I've found that the free DjVuLibre software from works well on my PC.   There are other DjVu viewers and a Google Search will find lots of options.

You can also download utilities from DjVu's creaters at however there may be licensing conditions to review and adhere to.
