It's the late 1990's,rather late in the day for film cameras, as we now know, but still time enough for Canon to wring another design out of the bargain basement Rebel series SLR autofocusing cameras. For years the Canon Rebel cameras were a)plastic, and b)low priced entry level cameras which resembled their bigger brothers. This changed with the T series, which had a body style notably different from the ELAN series and the A2. For one thing, they were silver, or silver and black. The T1 and T2 both had metal lens mounts; a major reversal since all prior Rebel cameras had a plastic mount. As for exposure controls, well, thanks to electronics and the metal shutter, the Rebel series offered the same basic features as the others.This includes the K2, the camera I purchased on Ebay for only 99 cents, plus shipping. And what was (is) the K2 in the overall scheme of things Canon. Well, it was the bargain basement of the bargain basement line. Canon made it so by using a long standing practice; they simply deleted a couple of features from the more costly T series, such as a depth of field button, and instead of the metal lens mount of the T1/T2 the K2 has a plastic one. Hence the lowest member on the Canon totem poll. Still, it mounts all Canon EF lenses (EF-S excepting) and take all Canon flash units. It can also take the Canon battery grip 220, made expressly for the T1,T2 and K2.I recommend you get one, because without it you have to us two (2) increasing hard to find and expensive CR2 batteries. The Battery Grip 220 allows you to power the entire camera with four (4) double AA alkalines, a big savings in time, worry and expense. Put a Canon 28-90 zoom lens on it, a 36 exposure cartridge of film in the chamber and fire away. After all, you have as good an entry level 35mm SLR as one could find. Oh, my 99 cent purchase, it works fine. I'm going to keep it for a while, might even shoot some slide film, then scan it into my computer. It also works with my Sunpak PZ40 flash unit.
Sadly, Canon no longer makes cameras like this. Nowadays, the Rebel name is attached to the Digital Rebel series, As for getting one through eBay, make sure you get one in good shape,and you should be happy with it for a good long time.
Why did buy this camera? Hmmmm.... well, I have an afliction, something along the lines of gottahavethatnewgadgetitis... so I've got several digital plus film cameras plus motion cameras. My wife had taken over an old Rebel Xs that I bought years and years ago, and she's the anti-gadget gal... the simpler, the better.
The old camera needed replacing, and she wanted to stay with film, so the search begins. This camera is rated very highly for an entry level camera, yet it has many features of the more expensive models. It's very simple to use, and takes absolutely wonderful photos. So, it's a great middle-ground, enough gadgets on it to keep me happy, enough automatic items to keep her happy... and those of you who are married know - keep the wife happy, and the house stays happy!
So, if you are looking for a hardy, sturdy camera that you can take with you anywhere, it accepts literally hundreds of lenses, it's easy to use yet has enough gadgets for the geeks in us, then this is a great place to start. It's robust enough to hand it to your teenager to get them started in photography, and pairing this up with the vast assortment of available lenses you can shoot pictures as good as any professional! My 11 year old daughter is taking photos with this, and you can't tell the difference between her's and mine!
So far, no negative critique to this camera. I got exactly what I wanted, and at such a good price that I'm totally happy with this purchase. How can you go wrong with that combination!
This camera is very light. It is well made and is sure to satisfy anyone looking for a 35mm camera. My only complaint would be that the button pressed to adjust the aperture is a bit awkward for someone with smaller hands, but I already own another Canon SLR and its no big deal once you've gotten used to it.
In short: Well made, light weight, easy to use.
The Canon K2 is the Last of the Canon Series to Use 35mm Film before going all digital. I have had several and I ran across this one, as the seller stated that the flash was inoperative. I felt I could always get it repaired if that was the case. I felt safe buying it thru Pay Pal as it was covered with pay pal protection plan. I have not been dissapointed with the K2 purchase, as I have an external flash and the camera works great ! There are about 60 different lens available for the K2 "E" series lens found on the Canon EOS series Cameras. With a very modest investment like this one I found for a Camera Body, You can buy all the Accessories and Lens on e-Bay at MUCH cheaper costs than a Camera Store. By choosing the Lens from a vast array available, you can have a Professional Model Camera for a very minimal investment. But as with all e-Bay auctions, be patient and bid frequently as you will often lose low bidding, but low bidding pays off if you are persistent and are not in a hurry. look for odd closing times and bid a pre-determined amount and stick to it. If you lose a good auction, don't worry, the next one is only minutes away. All you need now is the Camera Bag and there must be thousands on e-Bay to choose from. Before you know it, You'll be hooked on this Awesome Canon Camera and have your own custom built model. Something you would never afford if it had not been for e-Bay. See you out there next time taking photos! Enjoy your New Canon K2 experience !
This is NOT a pro's camera, and that is probably it's best feature. I picked up the Rebel K2 kit as a back up for my pro level EOS-1N and EOS-3. Compared to those two this is much lighter and smaller which is what I wanted. This is a great grab-and-go camera with a small built in fill flash that is great for close in-door shots (like parties) but won't offer much light beyond about 12 feet. This is a small easy to use SLR that can't do what the big boys (EOS 1/3/A2) such as mirror lock-up or be triggered remotly or go over 1/2000 shutte speed, but by the same token, the larger EOS can't offer the same convienience found in the K2. Over all it is a great easy to use camera that is one of best values (in my opinion) in it's price range.
