Canon EOS500 (Serial number 8343867)


The Canon EOS 500 was produced from September 1993 until 1996, as part of Canon’s EOS system.

Takes two 3V CR123A lithium batteries.

This particular sample is in 6/10 cosmetic condition. You can see some paint or glue sticking on the camera body and the front hand grip is quite sticky, however it should be easily cleaned with a little alcohol rub or it will eventually subside with frequent use of the camera.

All functions and features are tested - shutter speed fires accurately at high and low speed; flash fires as it should.
