4.0 out of 5 stars Good entry-level camera, April 10, 2007
By 
This review is from: Canon EOS Rebel K2 SLR 35mm Film Camera with EF 28-90mm III USM Lens (Electronics)
I recently purchased this camera when my venerable Nikormat EL-W developed shutter timing issues during my Photo 1 class.

This camera reasonably priced has preformed flawlessly thus far. I have shot multiple rolls of Ilford HP5 plus film through this camera and have yet to have an exposure not come out due to the camera. After reading the manual I was able to easily understand the different modes and how to change the user controlled settings. The on camera flash leaves a little to be desired as it rather harsh and its range is somewhat limited, an accessory flash will overcome this and there are other flashes that will operate with this camera not just Canon.

I have not had the opportunity of shooting color film through this camera yet when I do I will update this review.

The only thing I dislike about this camera is that there is no provision for a remote shutter release. The Rebel K2 with date is the only version of this camera that can use a remote shutter release, why Canon removed this feature from this model is unknown a remote release is very handy when photographing nature or when used with the timer for self portraits.

If you have any plans for infrared photography do not buy a EOS Canon, the Frame counter uses an infrared sensor that will cause fogging on your infrared film
