    Default Canon EOS 500

    Hi,

    What kind of camera is Canon EOS 500? Is it a full frame film camera or 1.3x cropped film camera? Thanks.

    meaning it uses 35mm film, which is what "full frame" is based on anyway..

    Full frame means that the sensor has the same size as a 35mm format film.

    It's a film camera.

    The term full frame is to describe dslrs where the sensor size is the same as that of a 35mm film. Since this is a 35mm film camera, the size of the film is the same as the sensor size of a fullframe dslr.... so......

    yup, basically all EF lenses.. but not the other way round, esp with the kit lens cos its EF-S, meant only for digital..

    Correction. EF-S lenses are meant for digital APS-C sized cameras. This means all the cameras except for the EOS 1D series and EOS 5D.

    If the lens is used on a film camera, it should be usable on a digital camera with little problem.

    opps.. ya EF-S only for 1.6x bodies ie. 300D, 350D, 400D, 20D, 30D.. for sigma lenses, they have their 1.6x crop lenses which is denoted by the DC suffix..

    here are the specs of the EOS 500
    u will see that the camera is 35mm film SLR, using the Canon EF Lens series.. Meaning, like what others have said, u can use their lenses for all the dSLRs.. BUT, if u have EF-S lenses, DO NOT use them on the EOS 500.. u will damage the shutter as the lens goes in deeper into the body compared to others...
    Canon EOS 30D w/ grip 580EX, Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8, EF-S 10-22mm
