The EOS 500N (EOS Kiss &EOS Rebel G in other markets) is a 35mm SLR sold in the mid-late nineties. It’s very light, supports EF lenses and is feature-packet. The camera has built-in pop-up flash and a very useful film pre-wind system that winds the film completely onto the spool at the start, and then each shot taken is wound back into the camera, meaning any accidental opening of the back only affects unexposed film. The camera takes two readily available (i.e. Sainsburys) CR123A type batteries. These features, along with the relative low cost-of-replacement, make this an ideal travelling camera.

The Canon EF Mount 35-135mm zoom lens, with Ultrasonic motor, is in great working order and condition. The specs for this very early nineties lens can be seen in the Canon Camera Museum here.

The Speedlite 380ex is a dedicated Canon EOS autozoom flash unit making use of Canon TTL and E-TTL (evaluative) metering. It’s a good partner to EOS film cameras of the era like the Rebel/500, 300 etc or early DSLRs.  It also supports high speed sync with some camera models. The head type is a bounce/zoom and auto-zoom works from 24 to 105mm, with rear LED indicators.
It supports E-TTL & TTL modes. The Power source is 4x AA batteries.

EOS 500N Body Condition: This particular body has been film tested and is in perfect working order. The body/shell is clean and has minimal marks for its age. It’s been film tested and sample photos (taken paired with the Canon EF 35-135 USM lens in this bundle, on Fomapan 400 at box speed) are included here in the gallery.
EF Lens Condition: The lens is clean and clear of fungus. The A and M mode switch works, and the focusing ring moves freely in M(anual) mode. The zoom barrel is smooth.
Speedlite 380EX Condition: This Speedlite is in great condition, and includes case. The one of the battery terminals has been in contact with a battery that had a minor leak, but it works perfectly still. The motor-driven autozoom in this unit is working as it should, unlike some second-hand units of this age (c.1995).

This bundle ships free, an comes with a free roll of black and white film.
