Having problems with your Canon Rebel XS / Eos 1000D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f& EF 75-300mm f Lens ?

How do I connect an older film lense to a Canon Rebel XS Digital body?


Answers :

Check the mountin type of the old lens, I use nikon myself and can use my old 50mm lens from a FG on my D70- as they have the same bayonet mounting. Though doing this the camera will only take a shot when it is set to manual- and I'm unable to use the D70's light meter.
If your looking to fix a really old screw in lens to your rebel- i imagine you will have hunt around for an adaptor of some sort.
Seein as thats something I have never done had a root around some resources i use- maybe this will help you a bit more, be warned its fairly dense reading material.

Another thing using a non-digital lens on a digital body can cause problems- something to do with the lens being designed to put a image onto a 35mm shot of film and not a little digital sensor- You'll probably find that what you see in the viewfinder does not appear in the final image. Fairly sure there are conversion tables for the size of lens and what it shoots when used on a digi- body. For example a 50mm lens will be giving a image area equivelant to using a 85mm lens (thats off the top o my head), I'm fairly sure this varies from camera but that info is fairly easy to find.

I have an older (not digital) Canon EOS Rebel 2000 camera. I haven't used it for a couple of years and now when I went to use it I loaded the film. No problem. But after a couple of pictures it rewound all by itself. I did not press the rewind button. I want to use the entire roll of film, not just a couple of exposures. Does anybody know what went wrong? How can I fix this? Thank you. [email protected]
