Having read a number of ‘reviews’ by my fellow Ciao members of Digital cameras – of varying quality – it got me thinking about a cheaper alternative. A Good old fashioned REAL Camera. That is not meant to decry the fact that there are now many top quality Digital cameras with all kinds of super...

Film - going the way of the dinosaur

The 50E is an old fashioned Single Lens Reflex camera (that's look through the lens to you and me) which has been around for 5+ years now. It is know as the Rebel in the US and other countries but is basically the same. The camera would be an excellent budget buy for a beginner, or a good second...

Older model.

The EOS 50e, also known as the Elan IIe, is often overlooked in favor of newer models. However, after many years this camera has not even begun to show its age.

Eye control, ease of use

Fixed focal length built in flash

I purchased my 50e new several years ago with a Canon 28-80 zoom lens as a replacement for a fully manual Practica SLR. One of the main selling points at the time was the eye controlled auto focus. This enables the camera to sense which of three focus points your eye is looking at and focus...

Lens Backup. Build Quality. Eye Controlled Focus.....

C**p Evaluative metering

I have used this camera for 2 years as a semi-pro photographer. I went to a residential course last year and had perfect exposures in all 36 transparencies of 10 films (unlike some of the students with > £1000 cameras). I cannot recommend this camera enough for anyone who is considered taking up...

COmprehensive features, value for money

A little dated looks

This camera has all that an amateur needs to achieve excellent photos after a short period of use. It can be handled by a beginner and yet not be outgrown as experience increases. It has a superb focussing system and the exposure controls allows most lighting conditions to be handled (it just...
