Canon EOS Rebel 2000 35mm Film SLR Camera Kit with 28-80mm Lens


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 purchased the Rebel 2000 after a couple of months of serious comparison shopping. My decision came down to the Nikon N60 and the Rebel 2000. The cameras share 90% of their features but the Canon provided 7 point autofocusing, 35 zone metering and a depth of field preview. You would have to spend almost $1000 to get these features on a Nikon. The only reason I even had to make a choice between the two was because the Nikon has superior optics and a more sturdy "feeling" aluminum body. The Nikon felt great in my hands and while I enjoyed the light weight of the canon, I was fearful of it's ability to take a beating. Then, I thought..."will i abuse my camera...NO...could an aluminum body handle a 4ft drop from my hands?...NO! So what's the difference. Don't be afraid of the alloy body! Some are under the impression that if it costs over $100, it should be heavy? Enjoy the freedom that these new products and the materials can afford us. The lens mounts hold up just fine. Most beginners will only buy two lenses anyway and won't change them very often. I have a trusted friend in a camera repair shop who says the new plastics are plenty strong enough and he hasn't repaired one yet. This is a great camera. I give it 4 instead of 5 stars for a lack of spot metering. Don't buy the standard 28-80 lens. It's lacking. Buy a body online for less than $260. Save your money and then buy a 28-105 or 28-135 USM lens. Always buy good glass! You won't be disappointed with this buy.

The Canon Rebel 2000 is a fine camera for the beginner who aspires to take professional quality pictures. It is as full featured as many higher priced cameras, yet costs much less. The camera is quite versatile, allowing one to take pictures by full automatic mode (point and shoot). If one so desires, one can take control of the process and control every aspect of the shot, including flash, shutter speed, aperature, and focus. The camera also has several built in photo modes for automatic portraits, landscapes, night shots, and action shots.
As an aside, the Canon EF lens that comes with this kit is a very nice lens that produces good quality pictures. There are many other EF lenses available that will fit this camera. An aspiring photographer will not want for variety of lenses.
I have had mine for several months now and I love it. I used the camera to take pictures at my brother's wedding ceremony, which was outside, at night. The camera's excellent metering and built in flash took properly exposed pictures with a minimum of fuss.
The only potential drawback to this camera is its construction. It is made out of plastic, which is a benefit and a potential risk. It is very, very light but plastics are intrinsically more delicate than metal, so this camera won't take much abuse.
Overall, an excellent camera for the amature photographer.

As a professional photographer I got my start using the Cannon Rebel series before switching over to Nikon professional cameras. I have had the chance to shoot this new Rebel camera and it is a great improvement over their previous editions. I do have to warn you though that even though the Rebel is great for amateurs its construction and especially its lense makes it a very fragile camera. I've broken two of them myself and my sister broke hers the day she got it. A better camera in the same price and skill range for amateurs and entry-level professionals is the Nikon N50. It's an easy camera to use and much more rugged.

I had a few miscellaneous comments to make. I've had my EOS Rebel 2000 for only two weeks and already am extremely satisfied with it. The first roll of film came back and the photos are nice and sharp. The only thing I could have done differently in the photos was to use some exposure compensation--I was on vacation and was shooting wildlife at a beach on an overcast day, and even then, the sand was reflective enough so that the some of the subjects were a little dark and looked somewhat silhouetted.

Happily, this little camera gives you manual control over shutter speed and aperture, as well as many other nice features, such as depth of field preview (which even the ELAN II lacks), and a respectable 1/2000th of a second top shutter speed. If you've been mostly a point and shoot camera owner until now, your fastest shutter speed will only have been about 1/500th of a second, unless you own one of the Contax point and shoots such as the T2, which go up to 1/700th of a second, but cost about 5 times as much as even the more expensive and capable point-and-shoot cameras, not to mention the Rollei, which is even more.

I'm getting used to the controls, which are a little different from my Rollei QZ35W. The jog wheel feature, for adjusting ASA settings and so forth, I find an interesting feature which I'm more used to seeing on Palm PDA clones such as the Sony CLIE, but I find I like it here, too.

In addition to the lens that came with it, I found a Tokina ATX 25-70 mm constant F2.8 Pro Series lens used at a great price, and decided to buy it for the little EOS Rebel. The camera fits comfortably in my hand, if I have one complaint, it's that the grip on the right side is a little small for me with the much bigger Tokina lens mounted, but it's okay.
