Canon Eos Rebel G
7 January 2002
Summary: The purchase price was with a trade in. Good camera, but was disappointed with it at first. Found when I read the manual, I got along with it a lot better! Really like the auto focus feature. Was reaching an age where my photos with my SLR were at times out of focus. Would really prefer like to have my Minolta XD-11 back, if it was still working! But the Rebel G is doing ok for me and as I use it more, find it to be satisfactory.
Pros: Simple to use
Cons: forget to turn it off, so waste battery power
Summary: After spending years lugging heavy cameras around, this camera is fantastic. Also I often need to take a picture in a hurry, this camera's automatic features allows me to do so and, at the same time, I can also revert to manual operation for special situations. On a recent trip I found that the color accuracy of my photos was superior to those of my fellow travelers. Many photo snubs will say that this camera is inferior to much more expensive cameras.
Pros: It's very light weight and its multiple modes gives it great flexibility.
Summary: I had an old Zenit E camera, bought in 1976. This is a completely manual camera, easy to use. Unfortunately, it was too old, and it was not worth repairing it, too expensive. Even though I own a small digital camera, I like to use 35mm film. I had heard of the Canon EOS 500n, as being a good reliable camera, so when I found one in ebay, I decided to buy it. I wasn't disappointed, it was exactly what I was looking for, easy to use, with great results.
Excerpt: "...better camera for the job! The Canon Eos 500 N was given to me second hand from a photography enthusiast, and I am very lucky to have it. Even though it came without a manual, after a only a few trial shots, I was taking perfect photographs. The zoom is excellent, and it's very easy to focus manually, or you can use the automatic focus if you're not yet confident with your focusing skills. Being very lightweight for a film SLR, I find my ...

Pros: Light, easy to use, flexible, reasonably priced
Cons: No fast motor drive, didn't come with a bag .
Excerpt: "...blur the pictures so fast. The Canon EOS 500 N is one of the lightest cameras you can find. But there is a little more to say about bluring a picture. You must know about the little mirror in such reflex cameras. In the moment you take the photo, this mirror folds abward and releases to the incident light the way to the photo-film. Exactly in this moment, there is a small vibration, which you can hardly feel, but which can make you the picture ...
Excerpt: Well, How did i end up with one of these??? Picture it in duty free, i needed a battery for my own cam... walked into dixons and came out with one of these. Have to say it cost me £300 and worth every penny. I was very lucky as i got the normal lens and a 80mm -300mm lens thrown in for free as well. Also a tripod etc as part of the kit. Having used it all over the place and seen the results i can thoroughly recommend this camera to anyone.
Excerpt: I bought my Canon EOS 500n about 18 months ago. It was supplied with a 28-105mm zoom lens, which is a useful enough lens in its own right, making the framing of most non-specialised photos a doddle. Being a member, however lowly, of the Canon EOS stable, the 500n has a huge range of Canon (and other people's) lenses available to it.
Excerpt: "I bought one of these camera's as part of a package from dixons early last year. I choose this camera because it had many unbeatably features that could not be ignored. This camera is one of the best that a beginner or advanced photographer can buy. The camera itself has two deistint modes (for beginners/advanced) which inturn have many sub-modes to choose from. As the camera is a full SLR it automatically chooses the best apperture, light, zoom, ...

Pros: Flexible . Versatile . A plethora of exposure modes
