Description

Canon always intended that the EOS 1000 range would be an affordable single lens reflex camera, but they also wanted to make sure it was good enough and offered enough features to be a good option for serious amateurs and semi-professional photographers on a budget - which means that ever since digital cameras sent SLR resale values into freefall, it's a real bargain for anyone looking to dip a toe into the world of film photography. As a relatively lightweight camera, it's an ideal choice as a first SLR for older children with an interest in film photography and offers plenty of opportunity for them to learn technique and develop skills, hopefully sparking a lifelong interest.

This is the 1000F (aka Rebel S in the USA) model, with the added letter denoting it to have a built-in flash unlike the basic 1000 model - it's got a hotshoe too for when you need extra lighting (or, of course, want to add one of the various other accessories designed to fit to a hotshoe), but built-in is always a handy feature especially when you don't want to be laden down with camera bags. The shell is plastic but, like all Canons, it's well-constructed and sufficiently rugged to stand up to the knocks and scrapes to which any camera is exposed during normal use.

One of the most attractive features, and an unusual one in a camera designed to meet a lower price point, is that the 1000F is fitted with a pentaprism system rather than a pentamirror, giving a far brighter image through the viewfinder - this is always makes a camera far more pleansant to use, but also makes it far easier to accurately focus in low light. Inbuilt DX decoding for ISO 25-5000 also improves low light capability and is comparable top-of-the-range models of the era, and can be manually over-ridden to 6400. Shutter speed range is good too, from 1/30th of a second down to 1/1000th plus bulb.

Getting down to the technical stuff, the 1000F has 3-zone through-the-lens exposure metering with spot and centre-weighted and TTL autofocus with both one-shot and continuous AI via the excellent BASIS sensor. It's fitted with a motordrive with maximum frame rate of 1 per second - slow even by the standards of its day, but chances are that if you're thinking of buying a camera of this type hyperspeed FPS isn't a major consideration. Don't worry that it's gone wrong when it starts whirring away the first time you insert a film: one notable of quirk of many Canon models from this era is that they immediately rolled the entire film onto the take-up spool, then ran it backwards with each exposure - the idea being that, if you later accidentally opened the film compartment, only two or three frames would be ruined and the remainder of the film would still be usable. Actually not a bad idea, really.

There's also exposure compensation with +/-2 in half-stop increments, four scene modes (portrait, landscape, close-up and sports - it should be said that the 1000F is soon going to reach its limits shooting any sort of high-speed sport such as cycling or motorsport, but it'll do a fine job at school sports day or slower sports such as football), Canon's unique depth of field mode and a timer.

The Canon 35-80mm 1:4-5.6 is a basic kit lens and, like most lenses, doesn't really excel at any task but will suffice in most - pretty much what the demographic this camera was intended for want, and the eight optical elements ensure acceptable sharpness for general use. However, the beauty of an SLR, of course, is that lenses can be switched and, more than three decades since the EOS range was introduced, there are many, many compatible lenses to choose from. Any of the EF and EF-S models will fit the camera, and second-hand Canon lenses tend not to hold their value so well as main rival Nikon, despite being comparable in quality. It's fitted with a rubber lens shroud (fold it back and it provides a very effective shock absorber protecting the end of the lens from hard surfaces, extend it to shade the lens from bright light coming from the sides) and 52mm UV filter.

The camera has been tested with film and is in full working order, and the mirror is clean. It's in excellent condition without scratches or cracks to the body and LCD display, the flash works and there is virtually no wear to the lens mount suggesting that it's spent most of its life with this lens fitted. The battery door is a little loose, but locks into place. There is a circular mark around the tripod bushing caused by a leather case, the lower part of which remains with the camera, but there is no wear to the screw thread itself. The hotshoe appears to have seen little use and has almost no wear at all. The film door locks firmly and the seals are excellent; inside, the film compartment is very clean and free of dust. The original instruction manual is included, but please note that the rubber surround of the viewfinder is missing - this does not affect use, but replacements are available online.

The lens seems to have benefitted from the UV filter for a long time as the first element is in superb condition without marks or scratches, and there is no dust or fungus inside. The AF/MF selection switch operates perfectly and the zoom and focus rings rotate smoothly. The lens cap is included.

Please note that the camera requires a 6V 2CR5, which isn't supplied but is widely available in camera shops and online.

About Arthur Rank Hospice Charity

Arthur Rank Hospice Charity supports people in Cambridgeshire living with an advanced serious illness or other life-limiting condition and those who need end-of-life care. Its 'Outstanding' services are provided free of charge to patients and their families. The aim is to provide the highest quality care, helping them to make every moment count.

More than 4,100 patients are cared for each year at the Hospice in Cambridge, the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech and in patients' own homes via the Arthur Rank Community Team. This care supports people to improve their quality of life and fulfil their end of their life choices.

Alongside the care provided by the Inpatient Unit, Day Therapy and Hospice at Home teams, patients can access: patient and family support; lymphoedema care; complementary therapy; medical and pain outpatient clinics; and advice from the clinical nurse specialists within the Specialist Palliative Care Home Team. Programmes are practical, holistic and tailored to the individual patient, family member or carer and may also include rehabilitative support, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and psychological support.

It will cost £8.56 million in 2020/2021 to run services, which are provided free of charge to patients and their loved ones. £4.29 million has currently been secured from the NHS, meaning that £4.27 million needs to be raised through donations, fundraising activities and trading. The Charity is extremely grateful to the local community for the continual dedication, commitment and generosity they show in supporting towards meeting this target.
