    Product Description

    The Rebel K2 incorporates many of the most sought after attributes of the market leading Rebel Ti model including Canon's premier 7-point wide area AF system, lightning-fast shutter speeds up to 1/2000 of a second, and 35-zone AF-linked evaluative metering that optimizes exposure accuracy. Compact and feature-packed, the Rebel K2 is a stylish, ergonomically streamlined, lightweight camera that yields heavyweight results. Weighing in at a mere 12 ounces, the new K2 is extremely compact and light, with advanced ergonomic design that makes single-handed operation a snap.A step-up from (and a step quicker than) Canon's entry level EOS Rebel GII, the EOS Rebel K2 features fast autofocus and film advance permitting users to shoot at 1.5 frames per second, 50 percent faster than the GII. Tracking and keeping moving subjects in focus is a breeze thanks to the Rebel K2's AI Servo AF mode and seven point selectable autofocus system (with focusing points superimposed on Canon's glareless new laser matte focusing screen). Users can also opt for manual focusing point selection by simply pressing the Focusing Point Selector and rotating the main dial until the preferred focus point is indicated below the picture area in the viewfinder data display, or on the large, easy-to-read LCD data panel on the back of the camera.Like the Rebel Ti (K2's senior sibling), this newest Rebel anticipates virtually any common shooting circumstance and offers photographers fast and easy a ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars La mejor de su clase
    Soy un principiante en esto de la fotografia, despues de tener una camara 110 salte a esta maravilla, tanto sus funciones automaticas como las profesionales ofrecen un desempeƱo excelente, he tomado mas de 300 fotos en poco menos de cuatro meses, el zoom que tiene es rapido, los botones tienen una disposicion excelente pata manejarla con una sola mano, lo unico que necesita es un flash de la serie speedlite, para disfrutarla totalmente en condiciones de poca luz, ya que el flash que trae carece de potencia(no le podemos pedir mas a un flash integrado), la recomiendo ampliamente!

    5-0 out of 5 stars A great camera
    This is the new version of the EOS Rebel 2000 (they called it "K2" instead of "2K", I suppose in order to avoid giving the impression that the camera is 4 years out of date, which it is not).

    It is simply a great camera at a great price.It works as well as any 35mm camera on the market, has a reasonably fast winder, and best of all it takes all of the huge variety of EF Canon lenses.It is actually very light, so you can carry it around without fatigue, or you can bulk it up by adding the extended grip (which gives it a very nice feel).

    The zoom lenses are a little slow.I recommend that you get the body only, and start with the 50mm f/2.8 MKII lens, which is a steal at about $70.Together, they make an outstanding, affordable, high-quality package for those of us who still love film more than digital. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Canon has once again raised the bar in the world of 35mm SLRs with its EOS Rebel Ti. Canon claims the Rebel Ti has the fastest autofocus (AF) in its class, which should increase accuracy and precision for shooting at a real-life pace. A built-in flash pops up easily for shooting in low-light situations, and its extended arm reduces red-eye effect. The included EF 28-90mm f4-f5.6 standard zoom lens is an ideal all-around lens for wide angle to medium telephoto photography.

    Fast, accurate, and flexible, Rebel Ti's three autofocus systems (the camera chooses the best one automatically) free you to concentrate on your composition and to just have fun. Seven focusing points cover an area wider than any other camera in its class, letting you place your subject off-center or even focus on the area covered by multiple focus points.

    The glare-free laser matte viewfinder displays seven wide-area focusing points, which are clearly superimposed to guide composition. There's also a dioptric adjustment so that prescription glasses can be removed for up-close comfort. The extralarge LCD panel is illuminated for clear viewing whatever the lighting conditions.

    You can rely on Rebel Ti's automatic exposure system for professional results, but the camera's special exposure controls give you lots of room for experimentation. With the camera's multiple exposure control, you can place up to nine images in a single frame for impressive surrealistic compositions.

    Shooting feels natural because the shutter button, AF point selector, main dial, command dial, and even the LCD panel's buttons are all within reach for one-handed operation. The command dial has seven preset image controls for work in various common shooting situations.

    The lens mount is solid stainless steel to handle Canon's full line of world-renowned lenses. A built-in, automatic pop-up flash eliminates guesswork. It recycles for action quickly, and with a red-eye reduction lamp built right in, images are natural and flattering. ... Read more

    Smoothly designed in a durable aluminum body, the Canon Sure Shot 115u is easy to use and can adjust to most situations to capture clear photos. The 3x zoom (38 to 115 millimeters) provides a wide range of options in snapping your subject.

    5-0 out of 5 stars a great buy!
    I received this camera as a gift, and it has surpassed all my expectations! There are 6 zoom levels, a timer, and 5 modes (nighttime, portrait, still life, and motion are the only ones I've used). I've gotten 3 rolls of film developed, and the quality is AMAZING. My old Panasonic would zoom in well, but the developed pictures were really blurry. With the Canon Sureshot 115u, there is no blur whatsoever, even on the furthest zoom setting. An excellent buy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing quality with great ease of use
    This is a very simple camera to use. The results are excellent. I mostly use 800 speed films and that might contribute to the vivid colors. But I have a Nikon N50 SLR with Quantraray lens and 115u gives me quality pictures which are as good as if not better, N50. I tried night close-ups, low-light, action and general pictures. Interesting thing is that, I found Walmart development better than any other place. We usually use, Walmart one day service. They use Fuji machine vs Kodak at most other places.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love this camera
    I just got this camera yesterday, I haven't even developed a roll of film off of it yet, but I love it! The zoom power is amazing. I also love the compact size of it too! ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    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. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Passed the test and more
    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.

    To give another plug here for this great little camera, a friend at local camera shop says he knows a pro photographer at a large newspaper who uses nothing but EOS Rebel 2000 bodies, and he just puts his $3000 pro lenses on it. He says they're capable enough to do anything he wants, but cheap enough so he doesn't worry about hurting them. He carries 3 of them at a time with him, and if one has a problem, they're cheap enough so he just throws away the malfunctioning one and grabs a new one out of his bag.

    One final thing I wanted to say is the manual is really well written, very clear and concise. They seem to really want you to learn and make use of the camera's features to make you a better, more technically aware, photographer. So be sure to read the manual.

    I've found this to be an exellent little camera at a very reasonable price given all the features Canon has packed into it. Canon has produced an outstanding value and a very capable camera in this little package. I can recommend this camera without reservation, especially if you're considering moving up from the point-and-shoot category to a camera with more advanced features.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for beginners and serious shooters alike
    This is a great camera. Its autoloading is clean and quick. Its exposure metering has seven points (compared to the Rebel G's three). It is light, small, but has a lot of features you's expect from a much larger and heavier camera. And it is fully compatible with the huge line of Canon's EF (and third-party)lenses. Eight to 10 years ago, this camera would have been among the best technology available anywhere. It is perfectly adequate for most applications.

    And the price is just amazing. I don't think there is another value like it in the new 35mm equipment market.

    The only drawback isn't really a problem -- it's just that the 28-80 lens is not the best choice for the kind of shooting I do. It is great for the casual shooter who needs a single all-around good lens, but I shoot a lot of portraits. For that, prime (not zoom) lenses are much brighter (have a larger maximum aperature). The 35-80 lens is even more restrictive. If you intend to use it for more serious photography, such as portraits or wide-angle shots, I suggest you start with just a Rebel 2000 body and get the Canon EF 50mm II lens instead (which is surprisingly cheap!).

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera
    I recently bought this camera at a local photography store... . The camera is great, but I was disappointed that I hadn't looked around for a cheaper price. I usually shoot in black and white and develop my film and prints myself. So far, the camera has been just what I need! The shots are turning out great and the features on the body offer fully manual (how I usually shoot)operation. The light meter is easily seen, and it is easy to change the Tv(shutter speed), and the Av (aperture). I would suggest the Rebel 2000 over any other camera of its type. Just make sure you are shooting with the correct speed ISO and the AV and Tv allow for no over/under exposure, which could make photos dark/light/grainy. The 28-80 lens that comes with the kit has treated me just fine, however I maylook into another lens later on. For now, however, I am glad that I got the 28-80, as it gives me a real fell for the camera, and it allows for me to take beautiful scenery shots of the mountains,rivers,etc. Anyone that is interested in photography would most likely suggest this camera.

    PS- get a filter to protect your lens from scratches,etc - no matter what type of lens you have. It would be better to replace a $10 filter thatn a $100- $2000 lens!

    5-0 out of 5 stars This camera is Great!
    I had been searching Amazon for a camera for about a year and had decided on a camera to get. But then one night I was searching through amazon again and came across the rebel 2000 and bought it that night. The design was my first concern when deciding on what to get, I have bigger hands so little cameras are hard for me to deal with. While this camera is not a HUGE one it is just the right size for me and I love it. The shutter button is in a great spot to. Other cameras i have had in the past have had the button right on the top of the camera, not this one, they put the button where the finger would naturally fall. Inturn making my pictures a lot less blurry from not haveing to move my finger to press the shuttter button.

    This is definetly a camera for a beginning professional photographer. You can set the camera at manual or total auto, which is great. There are many pre-set settings if your not a professional photographer,but if you are they are all pretty much there.

    I will definetly be recomending this camera to anyone who is looking into buying a good one.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Canon Triumphs Again!
    This is the successor to the EOS Elan 7. It is what the Elan 7 could have been, should have been, and, finally, is. Though the Elan 7 didn't leave much to be desired, there were a couple of modifications that would have made it the perfect camera for intermediate to advanced photographers. These improvements are an illuminated external LCD, better light metering, and faster AF.

    The new finish and emblems are gorgeous. The finish is extremely matte, so it's very dark and handsome, and the Elan 7n logo is now a relief on a plaque attached to the body that's also holographic, instead of the painted on white and red logo of the old Elan 7. Though this has nothing to do with its ability to produce amazingly focused and metered images, it sure makes it one heck of an attractive body.

    It is arguably one of the quietest 35mm SLR cameras ever made, and I agree. Its whisper drive film transport produces noise so quiet you can only hear it if your ear is pressed right to the body. The mirror and shutter action, though audible, are also well below the sound levels heard in most other cameras. It makes the higher-end Canons, and just about all 35mm Nikons, Minoltas, and Pentaxes sound like gun shots by comparison. Also, when the silent film rewind option is set in the camera's custom functions, this, too, cannot be heard without pressing one's ear to the body. But, even its high-speed film rewind is quiet, if you ask me, and it takes only 5 seconds to rewind a 24-exposure roll of film!

    Its auto-focus system is the fastest any Elan has ever seen. It can track things moving at a whopping 31 miles per hour at close distances! Trust me, this is fast! Only the rarest of sporting events would pose a challenge to this camera's AF system.

    Its light metering, especially its new E-TTL II flash metering, is almost frighteningly intelligent and accurate. When used with an EX series Speedlite, the camera uses distance information from the lens plus its readings from the 35-zone light meter (both from an ambient light reading and a pre-flash reading) to calculate an appropriate flash exposure. This works in much the same way Nikon's 3D-matrix metering does, so, now, Nikon has some good competition in this category. I find that my Canon Elan 7n with the 420EX Speedlite produces exposures that are just as beautiful as those produced by Nikon systems. And, the high-speed flash sync is wonderful, because I can shoot with wide-open apertures and not worry about not being able to use the flash with the higher shutter speeds that result.

    Its shooting speed is a grin-inducing 4 frames per second. Even the EOS 3 only does 3.5 fps without the incredibly expensive power booster with the Ni-MH battery pack, and the Nikon N80 only does about 2.5 frames per second. Oh, and you can get a battery pack for the Elan 7n (the BP-300) that will let you use AA batteries while providing you with an extended horizontal grip for better stability, a vertical grip for more comfortable work in the vertical orientation, and vertical shutter release and exposure lock buttons. Even the Nikon N-80 doesn't offer a vertical grip or shutter release with its battery pack.

    This camera features mirror lockup, with the ability to use the RC-1 or RC-5 infrared wireless shutter remote. So, now, not only do you not get camera shake from the mirror going up during macro photography, but you also don't have to touch anything attached to the camera such as a shutter release cable, which could also cause camera shake. That's awesome.

    The Elan 7n also lets you customize its settings and performance with 13 custom functions. This includes mirror lockup (another feature missing from the Nikon N80 or lower-end Canons), leaving the film leader out after rewinding it, controlling what the various buttons on the body do, as well as how the camera controls auto-focus assist lights, the flash, etc.

    And, let's not forget its 7-point wide-area auto-focus, with selectable points and light metering being linked to the selected focus point.

    All of these features, plus several I didn't even mention, make for extremely reliable point-and-shoot simplicity for the casual or inexperienced photographer who wants to get great shots without the hassle of learning all the stuff that's involved in true hands-on photography, yet the camera provides more features than even the pros can shake a stick at. And, it does it for around $300.00, which is 1/3 to 1/4 of the cost of comparable bodies.

    -My only complaint about this camera is its lack of a real focus assist beam. Most of the EOS bodies have built-in near-infrared focus assist lights that project patterns of vertical, horizontal, or combinations of both lines onto the subject for low-light and low-contrast AF operation. Why on Earth Canon decided to make the Elan 7/7n's built-in flash the AF assist light seems to defy all conventional logic and wisdom. First, it fires a short but rapid burst of flashes that are not only annoying to the user, but generally frightening to living subjects (I used it in a restaurant once with my Elan 7, and people actually screamed in terror...I've since learned to disable this in the custom functions...in fact, it was the first CF I set when I got the Elan 7n). Second, if it's being used for low-contrast subjects, well, it just doesn't help there at all, because it doesn't add any contrasting patterns for the AF system to focus on. However, when you attach an external flash, this problem is usually solved, because most dedicated flash units have focus assist beams. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    The sleek, compact Elph Z3 from Canon slips easily into a purse or pocket, and its stylish, futuristic design and advanced features make this APS camera a must-have for gadget lovers.

    With all the attention Canon's Digital Elph series has been receiving, it's easy to forget that the first Elph models were film cameras. This latest-generation model has much in common with its predecessors, including a chrome-and-aluminum body, diminutive dimensions, and use of the Advanced Photo System (APS) format.

    Refinements for this model include a longer, lower shape--less like a deck of cards and more like a cell phone--and a backlit status LCD that emits a cool blue glow at the push of a button. Several other features were revised to improve photo quality, including a redesigned lens and a newly developed passive autofocus system. Additional features include a 2.3x zoom, spot metering, self-timer, and a five-mode flash with red-eye reduction.

    A lithium CR123A battery provides power, and the camera uses APS film, a format jointly developed by five leading photo companies in 1996. The APS format is designed to take advantage of a number of technological advances developed in the decades since the introduction of 35mm film. Here are the main advantages to the APS format:

    • Size and convenience: An APS cartridge is smaller than 35mm, and the film is completely enclosed, which simplifies film loading.
    • Midroll rewind: Many cameras let you switch film midroll, allowing you to shoot in both color and black and white. Each roll has an indicator on top that lets you know if the film inside is unused, partially exposed, totally exposed, or developed. After developing, the negatives remain inside the cartridge for protection and long-term storage.
    • Three print sizes: Most APS cameras let you choose from three proportions for your prints--"classic," which is a 3:2 ratio like 35mm; "HDTV," which is a 16:9 wide-screen format, and "panoramic," which is a long 3:1 print.
    • Magnetic information storage: The film is coated with a magnetic layer much like a videotape. This layer can store information from the camera that can be used during developing and printing to make the best possible prints. This also means that photo time and date information can be printed on the back of each picture instead of the front.

    The two biggest drawbacks to the format are size and availability. The negative is approximately half the size of 35mm, so each photo has less detail than an equivalent 35mm negative. This can result in pictures that look grainy, especially when enlarged. Though the format is popular, it's still relatively new, so the film can be harder to find than 35mm film and developing may be slightly more expensive. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Tiny, feature rich, and it works well
    Having owned several small APS cameras, I can safely tell you that this one is a winner. The Z3 has a decent 2.3 times optical zoom (I prefer a 3x, but this is pretty good), very small size, and excellent battery life (over 25 rolls/battery, vs. under 10 for many other cameras). It also has some of the minor features that prove useful, including date and time encoding, mid roll rewind and load, and basic control over the flash (4 modes).

    If you've never used the APS format before you will be impressed by the small camera size and image results, as long as you stick with 4x6 prints. If you require 35mm results with enlargements, go elsewhere. This has nothing to do with this camera, its all in the film size. You might be able to enlarge to 5x7, but no further. These are really tiny negatives and the images get grainy when you enlarge them too much.

    I've seen some complaints about reliability, but after a hundred rolls or so this camera has been flawless. It did take us a roll or so to get used to the turning the camera off (you slide the lens cover over), but once you get the hang of pressing the cover in just a bit before sliding it, it comes easy.

    I'd also suggest that you check out the Canon 370Z camera. While it is a bit bigger and has shorter battery life (I've averaged 8-9 rolls per battery at best), the zoom is a full 3x, meaning that you can zoom in a bit more. That can be useful, although I have not missed it as much witht his camera as I expected.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Stick with 35mm
    In the camera store that I work at, we rarely sell APS cameras now that their novelty has worn off and this is why:

    The frame size for APS film is LESS THAN HALF the size you get with 35mm film. This means that if you blow your pictures up, you will see much more of the grains. Also, there is a noticable difference even between using a 100 speed film (which you should give you the sharpest pictures) and the 200 speed film. The film quality is just bad and the selection is very limited.

    APS film is more expensive, and it also cost more to get developed. It is even more if you shoot panoramics. As far as the film goes, if you purchase the value packs you can get 6 rolls of 35mm film for the price you would pay for 3 rolls of the same speed of APS film in many stores.

    Instead of this camera, I suggest the Pentax IQzoom 130M. It has more than twice the zoom for LESS money! It also features an easy to use panorama mode if you like having that option. A 35mm camera is not hard to load, and the superior quality is well worth the 3 extra seconds it will take you to load film. You'll get more camera for your money and you'll be so much happier with your pictures.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money
    Just as everyone else stated, this is a great compact, cool looking camera. Pictures have turned out okay. Some were blurry but I suspect it may be the lighting. Outdoor pics were clear as the sky. However, I have a lot of problem with loading and unloading the film. Sometimes the camera would keep rolling sounding like it would load the film but when it stops making noise the cartridge symbol blinks asking you to put in the film. And when it finally loads correctly and finishes rewinding the film, the door gets stuck and would not open. It's quite frustrating. I'm going to get a refund and I suggest not getting this camera at all especially for this price. You should probably go with their digital elph camera instead.

    2-0 out of 5 stars don't buy
    I purchased an elph for the size and the fact it takes panaramics. At first I was happy with it, it took good pictures, was easy to load and unload, and was compact. After about 3-4 months I was in the keys with my friends when we took our last picture on the film, it would not rewind not even manually. I brought it to a camera place to see if they could get the film out and they told me to send it back to canon. The door was stuck and he did not want to ruin it. I did happen to eventually get the film out myself but the camera still did not work so I sent it in (supposively under warranty) and they wanted to charge me $75 to fix it. I suggest looking for another camera.

    5-0 out of 5 stars WAY better than 35mm
    I'm not sure what has caused people to complain so much about this camera, it is the best I have ever owned and believe me, I KNOW cameras! I've taken hundreds of pictures (literally) and have competed in several shows with great results. And I tell you, Canon Elph is a tiny camera that packs a punch!

    I bought this camera two years ago for a trip to Europe. I wanted to have something small with special features. The zoom, panoramic, dates and special subject lines, easy load small film, etc. I was TOTALLY impressed!

    I took 30 rolls of film in rapid succession, within a period of 3 weeks. I didn't develop any of the film while in Europe, and even after ALL of my film, exposed and unexposed, passed through all the metal detectors of different airports, palaces, etc. it had FANTASTIC quality! In fact, the pictures of me are some of the best ever taken, other than some childhood shots and my high school senior pictures taken by a professional! These Elph pictures, held next to 35mm pictures from both my old Pentax and my Canon manual professional camera, were not any different. Mixed up, no one could tell which pictures were taken by what camera!

    I loved how the film was just drop and load. It was harder to get dirty or install wrong and IMPOSSIBLE to accidentally expose to light. NOT so with my old Pentax 35 MM autofocus camera! Plus, the neat thing with Advantix film is that you can take a few pictures, rewind the film, load a new roll for different types of pictures, rewind that and load the other roll of film only partially used! With this feature, I was able to keep castles on one roll, statues on another, paintings on yet another roll!
    The camera was dropped more than once, nothing broke! The metal corner bent (that's how bad the fall was) and the picture quality was not affected at all! The sliding face wasn't a problem for me to get used to, just don't slide it fast! Slide it just a little ways back towards the lens when you want to shut it off and it will recede back into the camera then you can close it fully.

    I have now used this camera often for the last two years, including a family reunion. Every picture has been great (except the ones I personally messed up like not turning on the flash when needed) and I have recommended it to my friends. Nothing has been grainy, no red eye, nothing! Everything has been clear and bright! Just remember to use 400 or higher speed film, 200 and 100 definitely reduce the picture quality. I used Kodak and tried to get MAX, not regular.

    I hope to join an art study program and go back to Europe next summer. The Elph will definitely be going along! Cute and functional! ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Finally--an underwater camera that's small enough to take anywhere, yet advanced enough to give you high-quality results with easy operation. The Canon Elph Sport camera integrates Elph's crowd-pleasing Advanced Photo System ease of use and portability with a sporty waterproof body. Not only does it take pictures on land at the touch of a button, but it is submersible to 16.4 feet for underwater photography. It's a good bet for vacations, since you don't have to lug around a separate, clunky underwater camera in addition to your point-and-shoot. The Elph Sport easily fills both roles, offering signature Canon quality along with special features designed to make underwater shooting easier.

    The Elph Sport features an extra large viewfinder that enables you to frame your shots even with dive goggles on. A special meniscus lens and underwater macro setting account for water's refractive properties and ensure crisp shots. Larger-format controls allow you to operate the Canon Elph Sport even when wearing gloves. Another highlight of this camera is the anticondensation feature that prevents your lens from fogging up in extreme temperatures or moist climates. The Canon Elph Sport also includes a five-mode flash with a special underwater setting and red-eye reduction. This camera uses autofocus on land and has user-selectable focus settings for underwater shooting.

    The Canon Elph Sport also incorporates all of the basic features of an APS camera, including easy drop-in film loading, three shooting formats (classic, high-definition HDTV, and panorama), built-in date, time, and caption imprinting on the back of the photo, and print quality improvement (PQI).

    Weighing only 7.8 ounces, this camera is so light it will float. It measures 4.1 by 2.9 by 1.8 inches--not much larger than a deck of cards. Its distinctive rounded, translucent green styling is a real eye-catcher. The kit includes a soft nylon case and a foam-rubber neck/wrist strap as well as a one-year warranty. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Vacation Camera
    This camera went with me on several vacations and has survived the elements, including a good thrashing against rocks in Class 4 Rapids. The pictures came out great, though the lense did fog up a bit on a few occasions. The underwater shots with flash came out much nicer than those I'd previously taken with another camera costing double. The sharp focus on a foreground object can be amazing, I took the most amazing photo on an eagle in flight. It looked as though the eagle was still but the background was moving. Drawbacks are in design: sometimes when you give the camera to someone else to take a photo they turn it the wrong way a shoot a pic of their face. Sounds stupid, but the front doesn't protrude much and it has happened too many times. People tend to grab the camera in such a way that their fingers get prints on the lense as well. Also, it is easy to get your fingers in the way of the lense. Improvements would include a lense cap and ZOOM, if possible.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ideal snorkeler's camera
    I took this camera on my vacation to Hawaii, and was extremely pleased with it. The underwater pictures are excellent, much superior to those produced by disposable cameras. The flash is very helpful in underwater closeups, and the large viewfinder is helpful when peering through a mask. Above-water picture quality is quite good, though the lack of a telephoto option hurts. The camera is reasonably rugged--I dropped it from waist height onto asphalt twice, and it continues to function without a hitch. Although the manual advises that the loaded camera may not float in fresh water, mine floats in my bathroom sink, even with battery and film. I would add a couple of cautions--When film is removed, the camera sets the film to "exposed" so you can't re-insert the film to finish the roll as some APS cameras allow. This means changing from 100 ASA to 400 ASA film (for example) means sacrificing any remaining shots on the roll. The camera does require a minimum amount of cleaning and care after use, especially salt water use. Also, there is no lens cover, which makes me squeamish when packing the camera around. I haven't yet scratched the lens, but I often worry about it. Although a zoom lens is clearly not practical, it would certainly be nice to have a two-position lens with a regular setting and telephoto setting. Despite these quibbles, I really like the camera!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good camera, good value.
    My camera has really stood up to the elements and multiple beatings. It has worked well for me taking pictures underwater and in the surf, and has also been to the top of multiple 20,000+ feet mountains. Dropped countless times on rock, snow, sand, and also dunked as much into water. I have learned to force the flash on anything but super sunny days - the pics come out a bit dark in conditions other cameras would have no problem with, and i've found it could really use a filter in intense light situations. Nothing you wouldn't expect from a specialty use camera. Just bought a second spare one for when the first one finally does give up - which i don't think will be for a long time.
    Good camera and good value!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ultimate Combination of Features and Quality
    If you are considering buying an APS camera, then you should look no further. Note, however, that APS film is a bit more expensive than regular 35mm film, but it is much more versatile (standard Normal, Group, and Panoramic modes, etc). The reason why this camera so great is most obviously its design. The case is waterproof as well as shockproof. After taking it with me hiking, I tripped three times, each time with the camera in my hand (in its little case), and showed no signs of damage, and still worked great underwater. For me, this is great, as I usually end up losing things in my messy room, and hence they usually get banged around. This camera is durable, and therefore there is no worry. Its waterproofing is great feature, as I am constantly taking pictures on my boat, at the beach, or outside where there is always the chance of rain. You don't have to worry about keeping your camera dry, nor does it become a problem if you leave you bag with the camera in it someplace where it might accidentally get wet. The design is extremely easy to use, and the pictures are great (use 400 speed film, its the most versatile). The only bad thing is that you have to fairly responsible about cleaning the camera after salt-water use. Now, I have never done this, and the camera still works fine. Furthermore, this thing is tiny, suprisingly smaller than the most compact 35mm's. You'll be suprised at how small it is (it's not too small though). It also has bumps on the back to help you grip the camera with one hand. To anyone who is concerned about zoom, on most compact camera, APS or 35mm, they barely make that much of a difference. And to anyone considering going digital, I say just get a scanner. Your picture quality will be much better. Recommended without reservation. Its the kind of camera you can just throw in your bag and never have to worry about. One last thing, when you first put it underwater, you will see bubbles coming out. I was concerned, but found out it was just air on the outside of the waterproofing.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Easy, Fun & Waterproof! Works great after FOUR YEARS!
    This is a simple point and shoot auto-focus model which fits nicely into small bags/purses or a coat pocket. Traveling should be fun in any weather and being able to capture memories should be too. Cameras shouldn't shrink with just a few raindrops like the Wicked Witch of the West. The Canon Elph Sport holds up to everything I've been through the past four years: quicksand, ocean waves, swimming pools, road trips, baby drool, hurricanes, blizzards, and much more. The colors come through vividly. Now with black and white Advantix film being available, I can take more classic photos as well. This summer, I tried surfing and the only success was the great photos. The carrying case is great - In it, the camera floats in the ocean. I recommend this camera for anyone who does not want to worry about their camera getting wet on family vacations (think beach trips or theme park rides here) or during frequent outdoor adventures.

    TECHNICAL NOTES: It does not have a zoom option, but it includes a self-timer feature. It doesn't use up batteries quickly. I've replaced it maybe twice in four years. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars simple and easy
    Great Camera for the price. It's simple and compact which makes it easy to point and shoot. I would have given it five stars but it came without battery. Overall very satisfied.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Why ship a new camera without a battery?
    Why isn't the purchaser informed the camera comes without a battery? It's the first camera I have ever purchased which required a battery and wasn't delivered with one. Because of this I am not able to rate this camera.
    I have tried to turn the camera on to no avail. My wife also was unable to turn the camera on. So, we have presumed the camera has no battery. Neither of us were able to open the battery compartment to verify the absence of a battery because evidently neither of us has the required strength to do this. I shall take this to a camera store sometime this week to check the camera out. I placed a roll of film in the camera but nothing happened when I closed the case. The film was not taken up. The number "1" did not appear on the screen indicating the camera was ready for action. What more can I say???

    3-0 out of 5 stars Almost everything we wanted.
    When we went shopping for a camera to replace our current one, this is the one that we came across. My brother even has the same camera and he loves it. We did research and found that it had everything that we needed until upon receiving the camera, we found that it doesn't have the date caption that we thought that it did. There are two different models of this camera, one says caption and one doesn't. We had seen the one with caption at many other stores and didn't realize that there was a model without a caption. It is a great camera, unless the date caption is an important feature for your family.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great camera!!!! If you have kids...this is for you!!!
    Finally I have found the camera for me! I have shopped around quite a bit, and have done alot of research! I have tried "Nikon"..."Minolta" and they do not even compare to this camera!

    I have kids and taking pictures fast is a must for me! I have yet to miss a moment! The flash is ready to go quickly after a picture is taken,(so you can take 2 pics of your baby doing something cute!!)You do not have to keep someone smiling while the red eye reducer light is working, it is that fast!! The view finder is large, so you can find something moving around in the view finder quite easily! It is small and compact to keep in my purse.
    I also use the Canon Rebel SLR...another great find!! But when you need a small point and shoot...this is the way to go!

    TWO THUMBS UP!!!! Worth every penny I paid for!! Canon is a name to depend on!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Little Point and Shoot Camera
    I bought this camera to take with me on vacation. I was looking for a small camera that would give me quality pictures without costing me a lot of money. I looked around quite a bit before making a purchase. I narrowed it down to two Canon cameras (the 130u and the z155). While I was looking for a powerful zoom, I decided the z155 may have been more power than I needed. With the 130u, I can fully extend the zoom and get sharp, bright pictures! I'm extremely happy with this camera and would definitely recommend it to anyone! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best camera for casual photographers
    I'm consistantly amazed at what Canon can pack into such a small package. I took a Canon Elph Jr. with me to Rome in the fall of 1999, and the pictures it took are spectacular. This camera has the 2x zoom feature, but otherwise it's very similar. The APS photosystem is easy to use, and the index prints and negatives that stay in the canister are godsends for those of us who are less organized than some. I was particularly struck by the clarity of the photos, the richness of the colours, and the ease of use of the camera. While the 24mm APS format is smaller than the 35mm standard film, the resolution is still excellent. Far better than any digital camera under $1000. One of the most useful characteristics is the tiny size. No one believes this is a film camera when I show it to them. And because it fits anywhere, I take it with me in my napsack and shoot photos of anything I find interesting. (I think my friends have come to curse this feature!) Paired with a $100 flatbed scanner to scan photos for your web page, or to send via email, I think the Elphs offer a far better bargain than any digital camera or film camera available today.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Compact Camera
    5{��������ostly use a 35mm SLR camera to take photographs, I wanted a small APS camera that I could use for quick, everyday shots. I looked into reviews of the Canon Elph LT260 and decided to purchase it about a year ago. The Elph takes great clear pictures, plus the 2x zoom and up to 2 second shutter speed are an added bonus. My only issue is the poor red eye reduction. However, I've found that similar APS cameras don't provide accurate red eye reduction either. Overall I'm pleased with this camera.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great camera!
    I purchased this camera about a year ago and I have not had a single problem since! I took the camera to Japan and NYC, the pictures came out far better than anything I've seen before with a film camera. The colors were brillant and detailed, it felt like I was still there. The only problem is that some pictures came out with red eyes, however that was not a problem for me because they fix that at the place I take them to so I never even see the red eye. The battery lasted a year under heavy use, the longest I've ever had before. The controls are easy to use and really come in handy. For the price, this camera is definitely a gem!

    I would suggest this camera to anyone who wants a reasonable camera that takes wonderful pictures. I got this camera as a gift a few years ago, and have yet to take a picture that does not turn out perfect. (I do however suggest always using 400 speed film.) I have bought a few of this camera for gifts, and plan do buy more for this Christmas season. I have also talked other friends and relatives into buying this for their use! This is a great camera for a great value!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent camera
    I bought this camera for my hiking trip in New Zealand earlier this year. I was extremely pleased with it. It's small and convenient, and the pictures it took came out breathtaking! The flash is quite strong: this camera took great night pictures, even where other cameras failed! I also took pictures from airplains, through the glass, and most photos came out very good. Some (not all!) panoramic pictures aren't as sharp as one would ideally hope, but it also depended on how much I zoomed in. For those of you who are unsure whether the zoom feature is necessary, believe me, it is! The camera is very small, stylish and light, and everyone thinks it's a digital. Changing film was a breeze. I used this camera in some rugged conditions in the mountains, and it withstood the test. I wouldn't recommend using it when it rains, though; I don't think it's waterproof. The only thing I wasn't happy about was the fact that the cord attached to the camera was too short to put aroung my neck. This inconvenience can be easily overcome, though. (Also, I recommend using Kodak APS film and developing it at Kodak, using Perfect Touch.) All in all, a great camera, highly recommended, especially for scenic trips where you need to use the Panoramic viewer: you will be amazed at the quality of the pictures! ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    The new generation of Canon Rebel 35mm SLR camera, the 2000 Date EF 28-90mm silver deluxe camera, is smaller and lighter than any of its predecessors. Besides its sleek all-silver color (including the 28-90mm zoom lens) and comfortable new body design, this camera has a faster AF and quieter overall operation. Many of its other functions, such as a seven-point autofocus, 35-zone AE metering, quartz data time/date stamp, and depth-of-field preview, have been added or improved upon. The seven-point autofocus system, five across and one above and below the center focusing point, contains a completely renovated focusing algorithm that increases the AF speed, improving selection accuracy of the automatic focusing point.

    The high-speed selectable seven-point autofocus system is linked to the 35-zone metering system as well as Canon's exclusive E-TTL autoflash system. Focusing point selection is chosen by the camera when it is set on automatic, or by the user if the photographer chooses manual mode. If the camera is on automatic, the shutter will not release until it perceives that the image is in focus. However, manual mode gives the photographer the freedom to determine how sharply in focus he or she wants the image. The TTL full-aperture metering has three patterns available: evaluative metering, central partial metering (which covers approximately 95 percent of the finder area), and center-weighted average metering. Though center-weighted metering is available, it can be used only when the camera is set on manual. This 35-zone metering system allows the photographer more precise exposure control in all of the available metering modes.

    Though this camera comes complete with many standard features for the beginner, advanced functions are also available for the more experienced photographer. Among these features are: a choice of evaluative or partial metering patterns, AE lock, auto exposure bracketing, and multiple exposure. These features, coupled with the Rebel's convenient built-in retractable flash and 11 versatile shooting modes, give any photographer the creativity to capture landscapes, portraits, vacation moments, sporting events, and other special occasions. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Incredible camera; takes great pics!
    Strengths: Lightweight, easy to use from full automatic to full manual. Depth of field preview (excellent feature!), AE lock, quick auto focus for price range, seven focusing points. Countless lenses and accessories available both from Canon and third party mfgrs. If you have large hands, I recommend the optional battery pack ... which also doubles as a vertical grip with duplicated shutter control and port for remote switch. I simply can't imagine these features on any other camera at a comptetitive price. Thinking about a "point and shoot"? Save your money and get this camera instead.

    Weaknesses: Included manual not very comprehensive, but spend a few hours with this camera and you can figure most features out yourself. If you need written instructions, I'd recommend the excellent Magic Lantern guide....

    Also, try another lens, like a 28-200mm aspherical lens, if you want just one lens to carry around.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent camera!
    This my first SLR, although I'd borrowed others from friends for a while. I bought this right before spending three months driving cross-country and shooting in a ton of different conditions. I hiked hundreds of miles, shot over 50 rolls, and it always did a great job, regardless of whether I was using the manual settings or the automatics ones. The advanced features are easy to use if you just spend a little bit of time reading the instructions. Having been used to older SLR's without any sort of automatic or digital features, I was thrilled with all the options this camera provided.

    I think the lens Canon include is somewhat cheap, as it is very lightweight and plastic. I bought a Sigma 100-300mm lens for the camera and it feels much more sturdy and well built than Canon's included 28-90mm. However, Canon's lens never gave me any trouble, it just felt cheap.

    I would suggest buying a number of accessories for the camera, such as a tripod, polarizing filter, UVA filter, remote shutter release (to avoid shaking the camera when it's on a tripod and for long exposures), and a larger zoom lens (Sigma makes some great ones that are less expensive than Canon's).

    5-0 out of 5 stars This Canon Got All for a Beginer
    This a very beutiful and good start camera. 28-90 mm Lens, Silver, Date are specialities of this camera. You will love it
    to have this in Hands. For more serius photographers may seek
    higher end models for reasons such as Plastic lens mount and wide
    range of accessories. But for a beginer, This is a wonderful canon to own.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Keep It Simple, Stupid
    I love this camera! I take rodeo photos and my action pictures always turn out right! When asked about aperature and f/stop settings, I sheepishly grin and tell people this camera takes care of all the details for me because I set the dial to "P" mode and cheat my way through! Awesome, Awesome camera...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great value and features for beginners
    I bought this camera not knowing much about cameras but wanting one that would allow me to expand later. I read the manual and knew I'd be using the auto feature most of the time for now. The manual is concise but efficient for beginners. All my pics taken so far have been with Kodak 400 film and are very clear and crisp. The evening shots I took in Vegas were using the pre-set auto feature for darker environments which came out amazing! The vista shots using the pre-set for background shots of Grand Canyon came out spectacular: wide area covered with great detail. It is light weight enough that I walked around Vegas with this on my neck and the battery is still strong after 5 rolls of film. The styling is very updated with the silver body and the 28-90mm lens covered every possible scenario I was interested in taking. The kit I got included (...) a nice Canon canvas case, camera straps, mini-album and battery. Good value for the price. Considered the Olympus IS-50 also but wanted the option of changine lenses later on. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Canon Triumphs Again!
    This is the successor to the EOS Elan 7. It is what the Elan 7 could have been, should have been, and, finally, is. Though the Elan 7 didn't leave much to be desired, there were a couple of modifications that would have made it the perfect camera for intermediate to advanced photographers. These improvements are an illuminated external LCD, better light metering, and faster AF.

    The new finish and emblems are gorgeous. The finish is extremely matte, so it's very dark and handsome, and the Elan 7n logo is now a relief on a plaque attached to the body that's also holographic, instead of the painted on white and red logo of the old Elan 7. Though this has nothing to do with its ability to produce amazingly focused and metered images, it sure makes it one heck of an attractive body.

    It is arguably one of the quietest 35mm SLR cameras ever made, and I agree. Its whisper drive film transport produces noise so quiet you can only hear it if your ear is pressed right to the body. The mirror and shutter action, though audible, are also well below the sound levels heard in most other cameras. It makes the higher-end Canons, and just about all 35mm Nikons, Minoltas, and Pentaxes sound like gun shots by comparison. Also, when the silent film rewind option is set in the camera's custom functions, this, too, cannot be heard without pressing one's ear to the body. But, even its high-speed film rewind is quiet, if you ask me, and it takes only 5 seconds to rewind a 24-exposure roll of film!

    Its auto-focus system is the fastest any Elan has ever seen. It can track things moving at a whopping 31 miles per hour at close distances! Trust me, this is fast! Only the rarest of sporting events would pose a challenge to this camera's AF system.

    Its light metering, especially its new E-TTL II flash metering, is almost frighteningly intelligent and accurate. When used with an EX series Speedlite, the camera uses distance information from the lens plus its readings from the 35-zone light meter (both from an ambient light reading and a pre-flash reading) to calculate an appropriate flash exposure. This works in much the same way Nikon's 3D-matrix metering does, so, now, Nikon has some good competition in this category. I find that my Canon Elan 7n with the 420EX Speedlite produces exposures that are just as beautiful as those produced by Nikon systems. And, the high-speed flash sync is wonderful, because I can shoot with wide-open apertures and not worry about not being able to use the flash with the higher shutter speeds that result.

    Its shooting speed is a grin-inducing 4 frames per second. Even the EOS 3 only does 3.5 fps without the incredibly expensive power booster with the Ni-MH battery pack, and the Nikon N80 only does about 2.5 frames per second. Oh, and you can get a battery pack for the Elan 7n (the BP-300) that will let you use AA batteries while providing you with an extended horizontal grip for better stability, a vertical grip for more comfortable work in the vertical orientation, and vertical shutter release and exposure lock buttons. Even the Nikon N-80 doesn't offer a vertical grip or shutter release with its battery pack.

    This camera features mirror lockup, with the ability to use the RC-1 or RC-5 infrared wireless shutter remote. So, now, not only do you not get camera shake from the mirror going up during macro photography, but you also don't have to touch anything attached to the camera such as a shutter release cable, which could also cause camera shake. That's awesome.

    The Elan 7n also lets you customize its settings and performance with 13 custom functions. This includes mirror lockup (another feature missing from the Nikon N80 or lower-end Canons), leaving the film leader out after rewinding it, controlling what the various buttons on the body do, as well as how the camera controls auto-focus assist lights, the flash, etc.

    And, let's not forget its 7-point wide-area auto-focus, with selectable points and light metering being linked to the selected focus point.

    All of these features, plus several I didn't even mention, make for extremely reliable point-and-shoot simplicity for the casual or inexperienced photographer who wants to get great shots without the hassle of learning all the stuff that's involved in true hands-on photography, yet the camera provides more features than even the pros can shake a stick at. And, it does it for around $300.00, which is 1/3 to 1/4 of the cost of comparable bodies.

    Canon has triumphed once again!

    PRO's:

    -Durable
    -Reliable
    -Affordable
    -Fast
    -Quiet
    -Exceptionally accurate (both in focusing and metering)
    -Packed with features
    -Stylish
    -Compatible with a very nice line of accessories

    CON's:

    -My only complaint about this camera is its lack of a real focus assist beam. Most of the EOS bodies have built-in near-infrared focus assist lights that project patterns of vertical, horizontal, or combinations of both lines onto the subject for low-light and low-contrast AF operation. Why on Earth Canon decided to make the Elan 7/7n's built-in flash the AF assist light seems to defy all conventional logic and wisdom. First, it fires a short but rapid burst of flashes that are not only annoying to the user, but generally frightening to living subjects (I used it in a restaurant once with my Elan 7, and people actually screamed in terror...I've since learned to disable this in the custom functions...in fact, it was the first CF I set when I got the Elan 7n). Second, if it's being used for low-contrast subjects, well, it just doesn't help there at all, because it doesn't add any contrasting patterns for the AF system to focus on. However, when you attach an external flash, this problem is usually solved, because most dedicated flash units have focus assist beams. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    The Canon Elan 7 uses seven focusing points, arranged in a wide cross pattern with a central "cross-type" sensor. The wider-than-usual area gives the photographer the ability to achieve a remarkably sharp, focused image instantly. This function works whether the subject is off-center, stationary, in motion, in low light, or even in low-contrast situations. The shot will still come out sharp and crisp, and without the need to recompose the shot. By using the focusing-point selection keys, the user is able to select any of the seven focus points simply by pressing a key. Representing a bold innovation in speed and usability, this feature gives an additional amount of image control back to the photographer.

    A highly advanced metering system, comprised of 35-zone evaluative metering sensors, is linked to the seven focusing points. Whether shooting indoors or outside, day or night, a seamless integration of exposure and focus ensures remarkable clarity and contrast in any image. This system gives the photographer accurate control over situations that combine light and shadow or that feature strong backlight. When metering subjects against very dark or very bright backgrounds, partial-area metering measures 10 percent of the viewfinder around the chosen focusing point. This provides accurate image results when dealing with shadows or highlights. The photographer can also use the Elan 7's center-weighed metering function. This mode places greater emphasis on what it reads as the center of the frame by measuring the entire scene. No matter which function the photographer chooses, precision metering is guaranteed--whether the camera is in a vertical or horizontal position.

    Giving the photographer even more creative control is the command dial. This allows manual-control light, speed, aperture, and depth of field. Shutter priority lets the photographer choose the shutter speed, while the Elan 7 automatically selects the correct aperture. This function is especially useful when capturing action shots. With aperture priority, the photographer picks the aperture setting while the camera chooses the correct shutter speed. This is helpful when control over the depth of field is essential. It's even possible to check the depth of field using the preview button. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars I just love my Elan 7!
    After living with a manual focus camera for 20 years, I'd splurged and bought myself the Canon Rebel and a couple lenses. I was happy with it, but it lacked some features I was seeking. Enter the Elan 7. Oh my! Once I learned how to use the multiple frame feature, there was no stopping me! I stopped getting so-so shots of my sons in their soccer games, and was getting at least one spot on perfect out of the two or three. This alone makes the camera worth its price for me, but there are other aspects I like as well.

    The camera just feels solid to me. My Rebel was lightweight, but I always worried that came with a price. I use my camera often in an active way, hiking in our bluffs, riding my bike through the wetlands and cross country skiing in the rare years we get enough decent snow cover. The camera can handle these kinds of conditions, and I've always had nice photos come back to me. I also appreciate the very high shutter speeds it affords me. I've nearly stopped the action of hovering hummingbirds with this camera, it's that fast. It's also fairly quiet as SLRs go, another plus for those who need that feature. The rewind is almost silent, which helps when I am stalking birds and my film runs out, as it invariably does.

    There were a few little glitches in going from the Rebel to the Elan for me. Although they are both EOS cameras, one can't assume that the Elan is just a more expensive Rebel and will operate as such. For one thing, the film counter system is completely reversed. The Rebel counts down, the Elan counts up.
    The benefit to this is that I always get 25 exposures with my Elan, whereas 24 was the max with the Rebel. Yes, film is cheap, but it does add up!

    Also, the creative controls work differently. I'd become very used to setting the Rebel to under or over expose, and needed to relearn the way to set that with the Elan. On the plus side, with the Elan, there is a setting that will allow for autobracketing, so that you can achieve the same thing with less thought, once you know that setting.

    The kit lens was a nice plus as well. My Rebel had 35mm as its widest angle, and the 28mm allows a little more range for me. I've had my Elan now for three years, and I am still learning to take full advantage of all it has to offer. From a camera junkie, that is high praise indeed.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Simply the best I've owned
    This is the finest consumer-grade SLR I have owned, and I have been in the SLR autofocus market since the Minolta Maxxums came out in the mid-80's. I have owned several Nikon SLRs and Canon EOS SLRs, and the Elan 7 is the closest to perfection that a 35mm autofocus slr will ever come (that is, one that is not a professional camera).
    It has all the pro features you would want, has superb weight and balance, metal top and front plates, several custom functions, excellent compatibility with Canon EX speedlights, accepts all EOS lenses, etc, etc. I can't go into all the great features now, there are too many.
    I got the amazing BP-300 battery pack for this camera, which adds a great deal to its fine balance when using long lenses. The battery pack also allows you to use cheaper AA batteries instead of the pricey lithiums. And, it adds some length to the grip (for those with large hands). This is a great "must buy" accessory, and can be had for around $60-70.
    The controls are simply laid out, easy to access, learn and use. The exposure can go full-automatic or total manual control.
    Do not go with the 7 "E" (eye control) version. This is only a gimmick, does not increase focus time, but does increase the cost of the camera.
    The built in flash is nice when not using a shoe mounted flash, the quick control dial is a great improvement, and its speed is increased over the previous Elan versions.
    A couple of downsides:
    1. In low light, it uses the flash as a focus asist light, instead of an IR beam. This is a bit of a nuisance.
    2. The LCD screen on top, while very legible and informative, has no backlight to read in low light.
    3. The pop up flash should extend a bit higher to avoid vignetting over long zoom lenses.
    -However, these are VERY minor complaints, and no camera is perfect. This is a great camera, well-made, with outstanding features and accessories. For the price there is none better.

    4-0 out of 5 stars My main camera
    I bought this as my first (and as of now, only) auto-focus SLR. I'm generally pleased with the camera: the metering is fine and it's fairly problem free.

    I do have one gripe: low-light focusing. Unless you have an attached flash (I use a 550 Speedlite), low-light focusing is a pain. It doesn't come with a built-in infra-red light for such situations and instead, fires the flash like a strobe. Not exactly inconspicuous.

    Other than that, a good camera for more experience amatures like myself.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent camera!
    I purchased the Elan 7 about two months ago as a refurbished unit. Unfortunately, the camera had a defective feature button. But the problem was quickly resolved by sending the camera back for a replacement.

    Since then, I have shot quite a few rolls of film. I have been impressed with each roll (except the ones I screwed up by not being careful). The metering is fairly accurate- I feel I can trust what it tells me. While in manual focus, however, it only meters the center focusing point, which can be a pain at times. But, the metering is displayed in both the viewfinder and the LCD display, which is quite handy.

    The camera is loaded with features- more than I really need. If you need help taking pictures, this camera is for you. It has a setting for almost every circumstance of shooting. I prefer the manual mode, which gives the user complete control.

    The included lens is nice. Certainly not the best lens out there, but for starters it works great. The auto-focusing happens instantly, but beware it has a hard time in low light. One bonus is it goes down to 28mm, nice and wide. And you can zoom to 100mm within about a foot of a subject, bringing things really to life on prints. The drawback is it only stops down to f/4.5 at 28mm, f/5.6 at 100mm. It would be nice if it would open up a bit more.

    Also, it has an electronic shutter. So, if you're planning on doing astrophotography or very long exposures, plan on bringing extra batteries or shop for a different camera.

    So far, I have no standing complaints about this camera. It's built well, is rather light and feels good in my hands. It's quiet, fast, and leaves little to be desired in features. I recommend this camera for anyone who is beyond 'point & shoot' and is looking to take their photography to the next level.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent versitile SLR for amateurs
    The Elan 7 is an excellent, high quality SLR camera for amateurs, particularly those who are learning more advanced SLR techniques. One of the things I appreciate the most about the Elan 7 is that it switches easily between manual and automatic modes for those times when the amateur needs to have the reliability of an automatic mode. Also, there is a broad range of Canon lenses available for this body which also switch easily from manual to automatic for such occasions. I've found that I've been able to hand my Elan 7 off to others (who can sometimes barely use an automatic 35mm camera) while traveling and still get excellent photographs. On the other hand, the control offered by this camera in manual mode is unparalleled by other consumer SLR cameras such as the EOS.

    The Elan 7 is the best SLR I've owned. While I've not owned an EOS, I have used an EOS. I highly recommend spending the extra money for the Elan 7 for those amateurs who strive to test their abilities with the more advanced manual modes. The EOS, however, may make a better "first" SLR camera for those who are trying SLR photography for the first time. ... Read more
