The Canon EOS Rebel 2000 is an affordable, lightweight, andfull-featured automatic 35mm SLR for both beginning and advancedamateur photographers. It offers a host of special modes for specificshooting situations, including full auto, manual, night scene,portrait, landscape, and more. It also has shutter-speed priority andaperture priority modes–although most users will inevitably leave thecamera in full auto mode a majority of the time and the cameraperforms very well that way. Just remember that the empty rectanglesymbol on the mode dial is for full auto.

Some other basic features include an impressive seven-point autofocussystem, LCD panel with extensive information display, three exposuremetering modes (evaluative, partial, and centerweighted), autoexposure bracketing, a multiple exposure function, and depth-of-fieldpreview. The autofocus system is incredibly responsive, and includesseven focusing points that can be set individually for super creativeshooting. In other words, using the LCD panel as a guide, you can setthe camera to automatically focus on the far right focus point (or anyof the other points) so your main subject doesn’t have to be in themiddle of the frame to be in focus in a snap.

In fact, most settings can be adjusted in creative ways on the Rebel2000, like the exposure level, which can be set to overexpose orunderexpose up to two full stops for tricky lighting situations whereyou might want to fool the camera’s metering system. It also has asmall, built-in pop-up flash, plus a hot shoe for an additional flashunit. Overall, we found this camera to be smartly designed with anattractive look and a comfortable feel.

    I have two other film cameras, a Canon A-1 and a Canon EOS 3, but I feel most comfortable with this one because it’s inbetween the two. The Canon A-1 is compact, but hard to use, especially because it’s manual focus, which is difficult on the fly. The EOS 3 has auto focus, I love it, it sees where your eye is looking and it focuses there!!! But it is quite big. This camera is nice and compact so I don’t feel too in people’s faces with this camera, and it has auto focus. Great camera to keep by my side to improve my photography. I feel even more comfortable with this than my digital dslr for everyday shooting.

    Great analog camera. Body is well constructed and “feels” solid. Needed this for an educational experience. Being used, it did not come with a users manual … understandable but had to download/print the manual to kick things off.

    This is my first time with a film camera. When I started needing a camera, they had invented the relatively inexpensive digital camera. But there were things that a digital camera lacks, for one, quality printed photos for sharing with friends and family.
    I too got “suckered” in by Amazon with this camera being offered in my Gold Box. 😉 Got to love that implulse buying. But after having it for a couple of days and getting my first roll of film back, I see that it’s a great camera.
    The sharpness of close-up shots is really good, and I LOVE the auto-focus feature. It’s good for when you’re taking pictures of wildlife, and they don’t hold their position forever waiting for you to take the picture. I also really like the pop-up flash and auto-light metering. It makes it really nice, not having to think if you have enough light for the picture to turn out right.
    All in all, it’s been a good camera so far. I recommend it to anyone looking for a beginner SLR 35mm camera. It’s easy to use, lightweight, and it takes pretty good pictures.
