    Great camera for beginners and amateurs alike

    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!

    Excellent camera for beginners and the price conscious

    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... 5/5 J. M.

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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 13, 1999

    Great little camera!

    On a recent trip to Tahiti I believe I have tried about every kind of one-time use underwater camera on the market (i.e., Kodak Max Sport; Kodak Max Wet, and Konica Waterproof Camera and the Fuji). All of the cameras worked fine snorkeling, although I found the Konica and the Kodak Max Wet to be more difficult to use. [The Konica was a little difficult to see through the view finder with a mask on, and the Kodak Max Wet, most annoyingly had the strap and the photo button on opposite sides of the camera! A real disadvantage to a right handed person. As a result you essentially had to use two hands to take a photo, one to hold the camera and the other to depress the button. Any of these cameras will work fine for snorkeling, however the best were the Fuji and Kodak Sport. Keep in mind that all underwater photos will look a bit blue, however, snorkeling in the lagoon in Tahiti the blue was not really noticeable.Here's the part I really like, now I admit, contrary to manufacturer... 5/5 Zannie "zannieh" (San Jose, CA USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Fujifilm 7025227 Quick Snap Waterproof 35mm Single Use Camera (Blue/Green/White) (Camera) On a recent trip to Tahiti I believe I have tried about every kind of one-time use underwater camera on the market (i.e., Kodak Max Sport; Kodak Max Wet, and Konica Waterproof Camera and the Fuji).

    great pictures both in and out of the water

    This is a great little camera for taking pictures both in and out of the water. Not surprisingly, it delivers best underwater on a sunny day, but even on overcast days, it produces crisp pictures with great detail.On land, it is much less particular about lighting, and produces pictures with beautiful colour in light or shadow, or both.Since it takes such nice pictures out of the water, a first time user might want to practice with it on land. The lever action feels a lot different from the push-button action of regular throw-away cameras, and since you don't hear the click of the shutter underwater, you might be uncertain whether anything happened. A couple of test shots (without the urgency of a sea turtle swimming by or a beautiful school of fish) should increase the photographer's confidence in the camera when underwater.The big wheel that advances the film works very well; it's easy to find by touch, so getting another snap of something before it swims away... 5/5 Susannah (LOS ANGELES, US, Canada) - See all my reviews This review is from: Fujifilm 7025227 Quick Snap Waterproof 35mm Single Use Camera (Blue/Green/White) (Camera) This is a great little camera for taking pictures both in and out of the water.

    Unmatched grain! Fantastic!

    Well folks, I don't know about you but I am stocking up on my favorite films, and FAST. I couldn't find the HP5+ PRINT film on Ilford's website, so I'm not sure if they have stopped making it, or maybe it's just not featured. Either way, it's a good time to stock up, and film keeps past it's expiration date.The Ilford HP5+ is an EXCELLENT all-around film, with fine grain, sharp images, and most of all it responds very well to push-processing. There really isn't much more you could ask for in a film. It currently is priced very closely to other Ilford films of less quality (Delta comes to mind) so for this price and free Amazon shipping, you better swoop it up quick!PROS- Fine grain- Sharp images- Beautiful contrast- Easy to develop- Responds well to push-processingCONS- Only comes in 400 (although it works well in all lighting!)OVERALLGrab a roll, shoot develop and print it, and you will see the... 5/5 Ciaran - See all my reviews, March 28, 2012

    An excellent vintage camera.

    Full disclosure: I bought this camera from elsewhere. I adore it, though, and I'm spreading the word in as many places as will hear me out.The AE-1 Program stands out in photography history as one of the most widely sold SLR models, a mantle it achieved by combining excellent quality with legendary ease of use. There are exactly five controls on an AE-1 Program, plus a wizardly Program mode that automates selection of aperture and exposure length. The five controls, for the record, are (1) exposure length (the dial next to the shutter button); (2) aperture (settable on the lens body's aperture ring); (3) ASA sensitivity (or ISO; settable on the dial under the rewind crank); (4) focus (settable with the focus ring on the lens body); and (5) exposure lock (the silver-rimmed button beside the lens mount).Shooting the AE-1 Program is easy: hold the shutter button halfway down to turn on the meter; if you're in Program mode, it tells you the F-stop it'll use (to... 5/5 W.

    A fine product

    Let me start this by saying that the bad reviews need to be read from a very skeptical viewpoint. It sounds like most of the bad reviews were written by people who had purchased this for a mic that needs a different type of cable, or who don't understand the wiring of this cable and it's intended function. With only one exception, this cable is NOT designed for a stereo camera. That exception being a stereo microphone that uses a male 3-pin XLR jack to output an unbalanced, stereo feed across pins 2 and 3 (with pin 1 being ground). Excepting that very rare microphone type, this should not be used for a stereo camera.This cable is a BALANCED cable. It is designed for Balanced XLR microphones (pretty much any professional microphone) to connect to a camera or device that uses a BALANCED 1/8" TRS microphone input jack. It is wired Pin 1 to Sleeve, Pin 2 to tip, and Pin 3 to Ring. Again, it should not be used for anything with a stereo input on a 1/8" TRS jack... 4/5 J. Foster "jeff92k7" (Dallas, TX) - See all my reviews, May 16, 2012

    There appears to be some confusion.

    If you are using a source microphone that is MONO, you will have some grounding issues with this adapter. It is specifically designed to work with microphones that are listed as stereo since it is wired to take stereo signals and split them to the inner and outer ring on the 1/8" end of the adapter.If you go to the Hosatech website, you will see this particular description:"This cable is designed to a connect a stereo microphone with a single XLR output to a mini stereo phone input. It is ideal for connecting a shotgun mic to a DV camera."Just because you have a shotgun mic does not mean that it is a stereo microphone. And just to repeat the description in Amazon, "certain Stereo Microphones that use a single XLR as output for both Left and Right signals."If you are using a MONO microphone, you are looking for the XVM102F. To try to help clear things up even more, notice the difference between XVM (M for MONO) and XVS (S for... 5/5 Ross "The Boss" - See all my reviews This review is from: Hosa Angled 1/8 Stereo to Female XLR Cable - Right Angle, 2 Feet (Electronics) If you are using a source microphone that is MONO, you will have some grounding issues with this adapter.

    Light Weight Cable For Stereo Mics With Limitations

    0 4/5 Rob W. "Sounddude™" (Florida) - See all my reviews This review is from: Hosa XVS101F Right Angle 3.5mm M to XLR F 1 Foot (Electronics) This adapter cable for stereo mics to work with small DV cameras will function but with caveats.First, it's construction is pretty light weight. That means you will have to be "gentle" with it when using it. That's something none of us in the broadcast production field want to worry about since our gear gets pretty beat up.Second, the adapter only has a one foot in length cable on it. This is pretty short and may not reach to wherever the mic input jack is on your camera. That means you would need another short XLR mic cable to extend from the mic to this adapter.So just be aware that this may work fine for some and not work at all for others. I went to Sam Ash music and found a similar adapter cable, heavy duty, and with a longer cable for the same price. It pays to shop around! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 15, 2008

One of my students let me borrow her copy of the original(1989). One problem in explaining aperture, shutter speed, and depth-of-field is that photos would really help. This book does that, as well as having photos that address loading the film, types of lenses, light, and use of flash. Yes, there are people out there that don't know how to load film. Although modern cameras may have electronic gizmos to deal with aperture and shutter speed, this book helps the understanding of how everything works, as all cameras do the same thing. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 28, 2000

    A good camera in its day, perhaps still worth a look today

    The original (non-program) Canon AE-1, introduced in 1976, was a groundbreaking product, being the first microprocessor-controlled camera. Backed by a major marketing campaign, it sold tremendously well and introduced a whole lot of people (myself included) to the world of the SLR. It was aimed at the amateur, and as such lacked several features, which limited its capabilities; it also lacked a lot of metal (the body is mainly plastic), which made it comfortably lightweight but which also led to some pretty serious durability issues over the long run. But within its range and given its target audience it was (and remains) a nifty little product. I have spent long hours behind an AE-1 and can speak from experience.The AE-1 is easy to load and operate, and extremely comfortable in the hand, ergonomic, and easy to handle as well.

    For Appreciation

    I've always said that people today don't have much appreciation for most of the arts they take on as a hobby (in this case photography). If you're serious about photography as a hobby or part-time do yourself a favor and buy a film camera before splurging on a DSLR. It may seem unproductive but it's anything but. A film camera will force you (and help you) to learn the terminology involved in DSLR's and photography in general. You WILL learn techniques even if you don't take any course what-so-ever.I got this camera (Canon AE-1) and it's successor, the Canon AE-1 Program, as a gift from my parents. The cameras where the same ones they bought when the model was launched and I was surprised to see them still function perfectly easily rivaling entry level SLR's.
