Canon Eos Rebel G

A wonderful entry level slr film camera that can use Canon EF lenses. It has been tested and in working condition. 


Introduced in 1996, the Canon EOS Rebel G is a 35mm film single-lens reflex (SLR) camera that replaced the Canon EOS Rebel XS. It is a consumer-level 35mm SLR camera.

The camera is powered by 2 CR123A batteries

Shutter speeds range from 30 seconds to 1/2000 of a second in half steps. The maximum flash sync speed is 1/90 of a second with the build-in flash on an external one.

Overall the shutter speed range should be fine for casual to intermediate use.

There is also a bulb mode for longer exposures. Keep in mind that using the bulb mode will drain the camera batteries, as power is needed to keep the mirror up and shutter open.

Depending on how long your exposure is going to be, it is smart to use new batteries. You don't want to waste your time and film on a failed shot because of weak batteries.

The Rebel G also has an electronically controlled 10-second self-timer.

When the timer is activated the camera will slowly beep. Towards the end of the countdown, the Canon EOS Rebel G will beep at a faster rate.

All of the exposure modes you would expect from an SLR camera with an electronically controlled shutter are included. The Canon Rebel G has:

  • Auto Exposure
  • Aperture Priority
  • Shutter Priority
  • Program Mode
  • Manual Mode

Program shooting modes are also included. These modes use settings that will give a better result than auto for specific types of scenes. They are:

  • Portrait
  • Landscape
  • Close-Up
  • Action
  • Night

There are 3 autofocus points on the Canon EOS Rebel G that can be individually selected. Changing autofocus points is done by pressing the autofocus button and then selecting the point you want to use with the main dial.
