Background and Identification ¶
The Canon EOS 300 is a 35mm single-reflex lens film camera produced by Canon from April 1999 to September 2002. It is part of the Canon EOS series, intended to replace the Canon EOS 500N as a consumer-level camera.
Not to be confused with the digital Canon EOS 300D, the Canon EOS 300 is a film camera. There is be a small logo on the front face of the camera to the top right that reads EOS 300, Rebel 2000, or Kiss III depending on your region. The EOS 300 uses a pentamirror viewfinder, as opposed to a pentaprism, which is cheaper and lighter, but slightly drops the quality of pictures taken.
