Are You Camera Spoiled?

Good morning you voracious and gracious camera geeks! A little cheap camera porn just because I haven’t posted here in a while. Here’s a camera I gave away to a friend…but I have a photo of it 😍👍

It’s the Canon EOS Rebel 2000 aka EOS 300 aka EOS Kiss III. It is a 35mm film slr introduced by Canon in the year 2000. Now here’s a great example of what happens when you’ve become “camera spoiled” as I call it 😂
Ok so it’s a decent camera and my friend is getting great results with it! I’m glad it’s in good hands 😍😎👍


Me personally, I never used it and never intended to. I got it in a box with other cameras and stuff. It’s a perfectly capable camera, but I’d be worried using heavy lenses on it due to the plastic lens mount. Besides that, to me it just looks real cheesy and it just wouldn’t inspire me to shoot. Somehow though it looks pretty nice now when I look at this pic 😂


At the start of my photographic journey, I’d probably drool to have a camera like this. Today, no. Even though the camera is technologically more advanced than my EOS 10s that I started shooting Canon with, the 10s would inspire me more with its better build quality.

I’d put up with the 10s’ three point AF over the Rebel 2000’s seven point AF just because the former would inspire me more, despite the fact that the latter would probably make getting good shots easier.

As I said, the experience of using “better” or better built cameras can spoil you! But it’s not just better build quality. It’s cameras I find “interesting.” They could be old or quirky. Or it could be a new camera. Just has to be interesting. I don’t find the Rebel 2000 all that interesting 😢 I’m sure many of you can relate. Don’t be like me folks, be content with what you’ve got whatever it is! 😎📸👍


That’s it for tonight! Hope to start posting more soon! Have yourselves an incredible week guys! 😎📸❤️👍

  1. Sometimes there’s a simple pleasure in shooting a camera like this. Someone gave me a Minolta Maxxum 5 earlier this year – a camera I would never have sought because I’m camera spoiled. However, it’s such a simple and pleasant camera to use and I always get terrific images from it!

  2. Inspiration is everything! No one subscribes to that more than me. :-))
    But as Jim says, there are occasions when it is still fun to shoot with these. That’s why I keep my ZX-5n around. Inn this piece you are your usual perceptive self!
