Summary: It's really a great camera! If you like to make photos on film, then this is what you need. It is a professional level camera. And today, it's not expensive. Recommended for fans and for professional photographers.

Summary: I purchased this camera a while back. I was originally very excited about the purchase. I immediately shot 3 rolls of film and loved the results (mainly because I just love film). After the 3 uses, it has sat in a case on a shelf in the closet. Well this past weekend I pulled it out for a project, did a fresh charge on the batteries, and left to go make some pictures. I was shocked when I went to release my first shutter... A loud humming noise and no shutter release.
Summary: Camera looks great and expensive, with comfort size and weight, great viewfinder. Totally i enjoy this camera when i shoot. Newest bodies from EOS system looks more techy (autofocus, compatibility with non standart lenses) so maybe next step i prefer EOS 1V.
Summary: This camera is a tank! I needed a camera for college and was looking at cameras under $100 to save money for other things. I saw this camera last, and man did I luck out! For $250 (got it with the bottom grip) this thing has been through drops in dirt, bangs in trees, a few light knocks with a ladder (I do a lot of extreme sports photography) and general walking around and taking candid portraits, and I dont have a doubt in my mind this wont ever fail (unless I need a...
Summary: Everything was good and was well pleased with overall rating! I purchased this camera for great quality performance. Canon Cameras are an outstanding brand and I would say probably the best one. It was a little heavier than I thought but overall it does a great job!
Summary: THIS IS THE BEST FILM CAMERA. I EVER USED IN MY LIFE. FEEL IS SO PROFESSIONAL. YOU SIMPLY FEEL LIKE GOD!! ITS LIKE THE MACHINE GUN. SHOOTING IN THE OPEN AREA. IN THE PRESS/MEDIA COVERAGE. YOU GET THE SPECIAL ATTENTION. ROCK SOLID. THERE IS NO CAMERA IN FILM GREATER THAN THIS. ITS LIKE THE ROLLS ROYCE OF 35MM FILM CAMERA.
Summary: One of the finest film cameras ever made. Fast, reliable, weather resistant. The camera lacks the E-ttl flash capabilities and the 45 point autofocus of the EOS 3 and the EEOS 1v, but to most people this will mean very little. These cameras sold for around $1000 in their day and can be had for a bargain now.
