35mm camera films


You can still buy 35mm film at many department stores, drugstores, and even supermarkets. And of course, at any camera store. Many of the same places will also process film.

If you have any specific question, such as about a particular film or type of film, feel free to ask. We can't answer questions that aren't asked.

I just purchased a Canon EOS Rebel K2 35 MM film camera body. What lenses are compatible with this camera?


The Rebel K2 has the Canon EF mount. It is compatible with any EF lenses except the EF-S series. It will also work with third-party lenses that are compatible with the Canon EF series.

You can see the entire current line of Canon lenses (including the EF-S series) at

I HAVE A CANON EOS REBEL T2 35MM FILM CAMERA AND AM PURCHASING A CANON TI1. CAN I USE THE SAME LENS ON BOTH CAMERAS?


Yes, you should be able to use them. Be aware, moving to digital there is a 1.6 crop factor. The means your 100 mm lens will have the field of view (FOV) of a 160 mm. No, it does not mean it is a 160 mm it is the fFOV is the same as a 160 mm. Also, at the other end is were you will most want to purchase a wide angle lens.
Example: your 28 mm film lens now has the FOV of 44.8, not wide angle. As you can see wide angle is where the move to digital crop sensor cameras lose out. To get back to wide angel you would need a 17 mm lens, that would give you 27.2 mm FOV.
To figure FOV take the lens multiply it by the crop factor. On a Canon it is 1.6, on a Nikon it is 1.5, the 4/3 sensor is 2.0.

Canon EOS 500n 35mm Film Camera, best cheap lens


In short, you won't. All Canon Digital SLR's use the same lens mounting system as your EOS 500n and new lenses are very expensive especially for those who have purchased full-frame models.

As a result, demand for the lenses which fit your camera is very high and so prices are high as well: it's just basic supply and demand economics. There were cheaply made kit lenses available with your camera when it was new, but like most kit lenses they weren't built to last, so most of the older ones are either non-functional or have been scrapped after owners upgraded. All that leaves are the higher quality, well built, lenses from the time your camera was made which are far cheaper than new lenses but still comparatively expensive.

If you want cheap lenses then you've picked the wrong system. Buy an older FD mount Canon SLR if you want to stay with Canon; you'll then find that lenses are so cheap that they're often offered for free on your local FreeCycle group. The same source is where I've got all of my manual focus (and some AF) SLR equipment over the last few years.

If I buy a Canon EOS 500D body wil my 500n AF lens fit it and operate OK?


All canon EF and EF-S lenses work with 500D /T1i model.(yes all)
If your lens is removed from old 500N body and if it has EF marked it will work for every Digital camera model of canon.
Note: its focal length will be multiplied by 1.6 X factor.
(mean 18 mm lens will become 29mm approx.)
If you find this of help rate me.

Cannon lenses


All canon EF lenses (and compatibles e.g. Sigma EX) can be used with both analog and digital  EOS-bodies. Depending on the sensor size (usually smaller than a 35 mm negative) a crop-factor due to the smaller field of view must be considered.  Example: Canon EF 50mm/1.8 lens used on a digital EOS (40D, crop factor 1.6) equals a 80mm lens (50mm x 1.6) compared to analog cameras using 35mm film. Some digital EOS-models can also use EF-S lens-series.
