I'm a professional photographer & have had many camers I still work with the EOS 500 with several lenses to produce amazing black & white images, modelling portraits art images, always prefered SLR to DSLR though I have both, I always shoot on manual settings on all cameras perfect for events also with speedlite, love it I'm old school :)… Read Full Review

Do you want to win a prize for 'photograph of the year' or sell a photo for thousands of pounds, or maybe you want to capture a moment in high quality and be proud of what you've taken?. The EOS500 does the latter, very, very easily. The Canon EOS500 is intuitive, easy to handle, fits nicely in the hand (albeit you get finger nail marks on the body!) and feels like it means business, and it does. I have used the in-built flash, but like most in-builts it's good for about 3 metres, but… Read Full Review

The Cannon EOS 500 is simple to use and cheap to run. Though battery may run out quick. Good all around camera… Read Full Review

Long lasting. I've had the Canon EOS 500 since 1992!!!!!! I've shot over 300 rounds and I have never ever requested any service. I have to admit I take care of it and not put it in too much unhealthy conditions but... over the years it has gone to sea, mountains, forests, crowded places and some pretty extreme heat (over 45oC) and cold (less that -20oC). So far, it's not giving any hard times. I only have changed the rubber around the eye as it eventually got cut off last year.I'm buying a… Read Full Review

Very good SLR, now replaced by EOS 300, have made lots of picture sales from this camera, (provided lenses are good quality too!). Have replaced it with EOS 50 but preferred the lighter 500, easier to conceal when backpacking and less value to worry about. Performed great in all weathers and temperatures, will buy EOS 300 next, good enough for prof. sales… Read Full Review

I love this camera. It's not a real pro camera(pro cameras:Nikon F4, F5, Canon EOS 1, 1N, 1V, 3), but it has a lot of features. It is a cheap and very good camera. This camera is good for from children to professionals… Read Full Review

I use the Canon EOS 500 35mm SLR camera for copy photography and have found that using a 50 mm micro lens coupled with a life converter and using 100 asa film I am able to produce excellent copies of old photographs.
This camera also doubles as my general camera and using the lens supplied when I purchased the camera, I am getting the results I am very happy with. This is in all conditions… Read Full Review

The Canon EOS 500 35mm SLR camera does everything I want without a huge price tag.
If i smashed it tommorrow, i'd be back out to get another.
As it's my first SLR i cannot compare it to any other, so i don't think the star ratings are appliccable but they have to be filled in… Read Full Review

I have 10 years experience behind me to quote that some thing is lacking in the Canon EOS 500 35mm SLR camera when u use it with built in flash in any auto mode at night (green, P, A-dep). In all these modes where u want to capture the moments instantaneously, many many of my photographs turned out to be under-exposed. When i used it manually with another semi-auto flash (non canon, vivitar) thing came out excellent. Auto-focusing is excellent in the darkest times… Read Full Review
