Question about Canon EOS Rebel G 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Poor quality photographs

I have a Canon 10 megapixel EOS SLR digital.
I also have a small Kodak 4 megapixel digital.
I thought I would get better photos from my Canon, but they are often dark. I take both cameras with me when I travel, and take 'record' shots with the Kodak, and try to get the good shots with my Canon. But when I download both cameras to my computer (a Mac with iPhoto) every time, the photos from the little Kodak are better. 
The Canon shots are dull, and often quite dark. The only time I get good photos is in low light, when the auto flash works eg. on walks in a dark rainforest.
I bought the Canon in Korea and the user manual is in Japenese. I have downloaded an English version from the net, but have not been able to find anything that  could help me.
Please, what can I do? I know I have a good camera in the EOS, but I'm not getting the results I want.

I think this is down to your choice of lens. If you have the kit lens, it is pretty poor unless in bright sunlight. You could try keeping the shutter open longer using AV+/- or increasing the ISO but this increases the chance of a blurry photo. Remember the sensor on the Canon is huge compared to the Kodak - so more light will need to enter the lens to expose it properly. This is why SLR lenses are huge compared to compact cameras.

Lens mount fit

None directly. The T90 was the last Canon camera to use the older FD lenses. All newer Canon SLRs, film and digital, use the EF mount. However, by using an adapter such as, you can use the old lenses on any Canon digital SLR.

Can my canon eos 500n be converted to digital?

In theory, yes. Replace the film transport mechanism with an image sensor and all the electronics needed to go with it. If you have a complete electronics fabrication shop and the components and a couple of years to spend on the design, it could be done. Kodak used to do this with certain Canon and Nikon bodies, and such cameras sold for tens of thousands of dollars.

In practice, no. A conversion would cost you much, MUCH more than simply buying a new digital SLR.

Can you use a memory card

No. The EOS 5000 is designed to use 35mm film. Unless you have a complete electronics fabrication facility and machine shop, there is no way to convert the film camera to digital. At one time Kodak did convert some Canon and Nikon cameras from film to digital, but those cameras cost $15000 or so and were only about 1 or 2 megapixels.

The shutter on my canon rebel 2000 jams and low battery lite coms on, can it be fixed?

Not realistically. Your EOS 300 (US=EOS Rebel 2000) was sold as a "consumer" camera. This means that it's built down to a price (it was actually designed and manufactured by Kodak on Canon's behalf) and was never intended to be repaired once out of warranty.

The camera will be around ten years old now and spares support was poor even when it was a current model. All but the most minor repairs under warranty consisted of throwing the camera away and sending the customer another one.

Although what I've told you may be disappointing, the cloud has a silver lining: you can get these for next to nothing on auction websites now and certainly for nothing on FreeCycle and Freegle; that's where I get most of my Canon and Nikon 35mm equipment from. High end models do still retain some value to both users and collectors, but any Canon EOS triple digit model/Rebel is never going to be of any real value unless it comes with non-standard lenses or other sought-after accessories.
