It may come as a surprise to some that the world’s largest camera manufacturers still make film SLR cameras. The digital age has its roots in film cameras like the Canon EOS Rebel K2, a professional SLR released in 2003. The success of Canon’s entry-level DSLRs—the Rebel family—translates back to film with the K2, an SLR that features full manual settings, of course, but with easy modes for beginners trying to get the hang of film.
Things You’ll Need : film (ISO 400 or 800 recommended for beginners)
Setting Up the Camera
- Turn the camera upside down and slide the release lever on the battery cover to open it. Insert two CR2 lithium batteries (included with the camera or available for purchase from most camera stores). Be sure to follow the indicated positive and negative signs. Canon doesn’t recommend mixing new and old batteries.
