Film Question

Hi All,

Not sure if this is the right place to post.

I'm taking a photography class over the next few weeks. It's based on film, and they're able to provide me with a pretty shoddy film camera for the class. I was wondering, are there any Canon film bodies I could buy that could work with my current EF-S lens? I own a couple of EF-S lenses and I feel it'd be better if I could use those on a film body.

Budget would have to be ~$60 for the body, if that's possible?

Thanks!

EF-S lenses are designed for smaller APS-C sensor cameras. So mounted on a full frame digital or a film camera, the lens will not fill the sensor or film completely.

I don't think film bodies will work with ef-s lenses.

Hmm, what about EF lenses then?

What kind of "Shoddy" film camera does the class provide?

you can get tons of film cameras that will work with your EF lenses...

just look on ebay...

i'd go for one that also includes a lens...it's a good way to get lenses for pretty cheap as well...i've bought 3 film cameras on ebay, 2 with a 50mm MK I for 70, and 55...and another with a tokina 28-70 f2.8 for about $100...

They will work with all EOS film bodies. The EF mount was created for film (1987?) when the EOS system was launched, years before the first digital SLR.

EF lenses will work on all Canon EOS bodies. EF-S will only work on the APS-C bodies.

If you want a film body that will take EF lenses, let me know. You can have a Rebel K2, Rebel G, or a couple of others (I think I have more rebel bodies). I also have EOS 620's, 630's, 650's, and 750's. If you want one, let me know.
