A good, basic, and compact entry level SLR as you could find. Buy it
1 July 2011
Summary: It's the late 1990's,rather late in the day for film cameras, as we now know, but still time enough for Canon to wring another design out of the bargain basement Rebel series SLR autofocusing cameras. For years the Canon Rebel cameras were a)plastic, and b)low priced entry level cameras which resembled their bigger brothers. This changed with the T series, which had a body style notably different from the ELAN series and the A2.
Summary: The item was discribed as new and didnt list any flaws, but there was a broken rubber viewfinder piece and there is visible dirt when you look through the viewfinder. Otherwise the camera works great and these flaws do not effect the quality of the photos.
Summary: Great camera... takes good pictures and really easy to use... great features.. also light to carry. I got the camera to takes pictues and practice with film before i start photography class at my school.
Summary: What I like about it, it is fast (film advances automatically), lightweight, takes great pictures, the meter is spot on, it loads and rewinds ,automatically it can be set to fully manual for shooting, or one of many automatic settings with some user control, or completely automatic setting also. Since it uses any eos lens, there is not anything I particularly don't like about it.
Summary: I greatly enjoy this item because it's a step up from an early 80s Pentax camera that had a broken exposure meter which made taking pictures a hassle and this Rebel K2 was easy to figure out with no user guide. The lense was a little off but I've already got one on order to replace it and well I'm not disappointed I recommend this camera to anyone starting off it's light weight and user friendly
Summary: Pro: Has both Point & Shoot and Manual applications. Handles well. Light weight and compact. The EF lenses actually make the camera with AF function. Con: Limited shutter speed. Lenses have limited f at 1:4 to 5.6. Buy a ND filter and Speedlite attachment to compensate. Program Shift is also useful. Compared to the AE-1 it is a dramatic leap in technology.
Canon EOS Rebel K2 with 28-90 lens 35mm Film Camera
27 March 2009
Summary: I bought the Canon EOS Rebel K2 35mm Film Camera because I wanted an easy to use 35 mm film camera for hobby and pursuit. I must admit, this camera is in good shape, like it hasn't been touched. Easy to use, lightweight and has good auto/manual zoom lens . Can accommodate various filters and other add-ons. I am pleased with the product.
Summary: The Canon K2 is the Last of the Canon Series to Use 35mm Film before going all digital. I have had several and I ran across this one, as the seller stated that the flash was inoperative. I felt I could always get it repaired if that was the case. I felt safe buying it thru Pay Pal as it was covered with pay pal protection plan. I have not been dissapointed with the K2 purchase, as I have an external flash and the camera works great !
