Will your Canon T70 35mm film camera lenses fit on any of the digital Canon SLR cameras?
I don't think they will fit any. The lens mount was changed right after the Canon T70. Someone told me they will fit a Nikon so I'm trying to find that out. (They don't fit Nikon cameras.) Canon T70 lenses only fit Canon SLR's (single lens reflex) made between 1964 to 1987. The T70 uses Canon FD mount lenses. FD lenses can only be focused manually. All of the exposure communication connections between the camera and lens are mechanical. An EF lens will not fit onto an FD body. In 1987, Canon introduced EOS cameras that use EF (electro-focus) lenses. All of the exposure and focusing communication connections between the camera and lens are electrical. An FD lens will not fit directly on to any EOS camera. The Rebel XSi camera is a Canon EOS digital camera that can use EF lenses or the smaller EF-S lenses made for APS-C DSLR's. Adaptors are available on a popular internet auction site that will connect an FD lens to an EOS body. The price in 2008 is just under $40, including shipping. Lens functions are manually adjustable only, and are not very convenient when used in this way.

Canon replaced the 20D with the 30D that had more mexapixels and newer features.. In fact, the 30D was replaced by the 40D, which was then replaced by the current (Jan. 2009) 50D camera body.
Lenses From 35 mm Fitting Canon SLR . Absolutely! The only trouble I have had is with a 2X converter and a 400mm lens. It would not auto focus or stop down. I still got an OK photo of the moon. I migrated ALL my lenses successfully. I think film lenses work on digital. Digital do not work on film…. Why not? Due to the .625 smaller area covered by the lens. They will not even mount.. The answer above is right, but if you have any troubles with canon and canon lenses just feel free to contact Canon Support Team. Visit canon's official website and there you'll be able to find a link to their customer support. (MORE)
No, Canon EOS uses a different type connection for its lenses and thus will now work with the "FD" lenses from the AE-1
In short, yes.. More specifically, as long your zoom lens is an "EF" mount lens, it will work with all Canon Digital-SLR models from the EOS line. You can determine if a lens is an EF mount from the full name of the lens. The full name of the lens is usually written on the outside of the len itself…. (MORE)
It depends on how old. Canon EF lenses made since 1987 for Canon EOS bodies will fit the new Canon EOS digital bodies. The older FD lenses (before 1987) will not fit Canon EOS bodies, film or digital.
All bayonet mount canon camera's in the past 30 years will accept an FD lens'. The AE 1 and later ones will accept the lens' but will only work on automatic if the lens has the A setting on the lens.The FD will not work on an auto focus.
Canon EF lenses that fit Canon EOS cameras will fit all Canon digital SLR bodies. Canon FD lenses that fit Canon SLR's made before 1987 will not fit any EOS or digital EOS camera body. It depends on which DSLR you have as to which lenses can be used.
AE1 lenses are the end of the line of the FD series of manual focus lenses. They are not compatible with the Canon autofocus series that started in the 1980s with the EOS line.
Yes, but with some limitations. The Canon 480EG was designed as a TTL flash (through the lens metering) but also has an External Auto metering Mode. It can be used with any camera that has a PC sync connection. Don't use the "Shoe Cord E" that comes with the flash unless you are using a Film Cam…era with TTL flash metering. It can be used with Digital cameras provided you use a PC sync cord to connect the flash to the camera. Use the camera in manual mode and match the settings that you want to use with the flash.

I just bought a new Canon Digital T3i CAMERA, and the lenses willnot fit nor couple up to it. So the answer is no !
Yes, you can use film Canon lenses on a DSLR Canon. However, if you lenses are really old (made before 1987), they might not fit. But I'd try them anyway. My father had an old Canon 35MM and I was able to use his lenses just fine on my new Canon DSLR. Here's a good rule of thumb to remember: You… can typically use film lenses on digital cameras, but not vice versa. Hope this helps. (MORE)
The short answer is "Yes.". The long answer is: The 35mm Canon Rebel is a Canon EOS camera. All EOS cameras, including the 35mm Rebel, use Canon EF (auto focus) lenses. They can also use independently made lenses with EOS type camera mounts.. All Canon DSLR (digital single lens reflex) cameras can… use all Canon EF (or independent manufacturer equivalent) lenses made for film or digital cameras.. Most Canon DSLR's have an APS-C sensor that measures 22.2 x 14.8mm. (This is smaller than the 36 x 24mm image size on 35mm film.) In 2003, Canon introduced EF-S lenses that were optimized for the APS-C sensor size. The EF-S lenses will only fit on Canon 20D, 30D, 40D, and 50D cameras (as of 2008) and all Canon Digital Rebel cameras. (MORE)
No other major camera manufacturer currently makes a camera body that will accept Canon lenses.. (From 1930 to 1960, Leica rangefinder cameras took screw-in lenses. During that time, several other camera manufacturers, including Canon, made rangefinders with the same screw mount, so all of their le…nses were interchangable. This is the same lens mount that most screw-in enlarging lenses have.) (MORE)

There is no perfect answer to this question. However, here are some suggestions:. For the XSi, the most convenient lens is a zoom with 17mm or 18mm focal length at the wide end of the zoom range (equivalent to around 28mm focal length for full frame 35mm camera). For nice single or couple portraits…, a lens around 60-70mm gives good perspective.. One of the best lenses that will cover this range is the Canon EF-S 17-85mm IS lens. The IS stands for internal stabilization, which stabilizes the image when you are hand-holding the camera and not using flash. If you want more telephoto than 85mm, Canon has recently released the 18-200mm IS lens that should also be excellent for weddings. (MORE)
not without a converter. but then it becomes a completely manual lens. focus, meter, everything.
35 or 50 mm in a fixed lens, or a 35-70 (approx) zoom. Buy the best lens you can afford, and learn to use it well before moving onward. It is better to become proficient with one lens than confused by several. . Remember that quality photography is not produced by the camera, but by the photograph…er's mind. The camera is the tool that records the image, nothing more. A great photographer can take great photos with a disposable camera. A poor one will produce junk from a Leica. (MORE)
No. The three primary types of Canon lens, and some commentary on compatibility, are below. . Canon FD and FL lenses: These are all manual-focus lenses for manual-focus cameras. FL lenses will work on any FD camera (for example, the famous AE-1 and T70), but FD lenses will probably not work with… FL cameras (try it yourself). These lenses will not work properly on EOS cameras, either (including modern digital SLRs); they will not be able to focus to infinity. You can get adapters of varying quality with optical elements that correct for the different flange-to-film distance. Most of these adapters are cheap, useless, and rob light and sharpness; Canon made one for their FD telephotos when the EOS system first came out, but these are hideously expensive. If you don't need to focus beyond a few feet, then you can get adapters without optics which will allow these to be used, with varying degrees of success, on EOS cameras. Some very brave people have physically modified FD lenses, too. You're on your own here. . Canon EF lenses: These were designed for the EOS system, and will not work with FD or FL cameras. Nearly all of these are auto-focus lenses. Any genuine Canon EF (not EF-S -- see below!) lens should work with any Canon EOS camera -- both film and digital SLRs. . Canon EF-S lenses: These are lenses designed specially for Canon's digital SLRs with smaller sensors, such as the Rebel, Rebel XT, and friends. These will not work on 35mm film cameras, because they don't cast an image large enough to cover the whole frame. They'll also be pretty useless on full-frame digital SLRs like the 5D (which have sensors roughly the size of 35mm film). Interestingly, they don't work on the ancient D30 or D60 digital SLRs either, despite these cameras having a cropped (1.6x) sensor. . These comments only apply to genuine Canon lenses. Non-camera-brand lenses may introduce compatibility issues of their own. For example, some Sigma zooms will work with EOS film cameras, the D30, and D60, but for some reason decline to work with modern EOS digital SLRs. (MORE)
Yes they will. Of course screw mount lenses need an adaptor. M lenses will of course be manual focus. Some lenses will only work on aperture priority I think. Yes, all K-mount lenses will fit the current Pentax digital SLRs. K- and M- lenses will be manual focus and need the metering to be set dif…ferently to newer lenses, using the camera's green button or AE-L button (depending on model) - and this sometimes over- or under-exposes so may need some experimentation to get it right in different conditions. It's fiddly so maybe best avoided unless you are an enthusiast. A- lenses will be manual focus but the metering will work normally, e.g. you can use the camera on fully automatic, aperture or shutter priority. FA-lenses work in the same way as digital-specific (DA) lenses - autofocus and any of the automatic settings can be used. One thing to note, film camera lenses were made for a 35x24mm film rather than a 24x18mm sensor as fitted to Pentax DSLRs. This means that they are on average 'longer', e.g. a 28mm lens is a wide-angle for film, but on a DSLR it's a standard-length lens (equivalent of a 42mm on film). (MORE)
All EF series lenses will work with the film Rebel or any other EOS film body. EF-S lenses are not compatible with film cameras or full-frame digitals.
All EF series lenses will work on any Canon EOS series SLR, digital or film. EF-S series lenses will NOT work on film SLRS or Full-Frame digital bodies (5D and 1 series). They only work on 10D-60D, 7D, and Digital Rebels with a cropped (APS-C) sensor. FD series lens are not compatible with EO…S bodies. There are adapters available, but these are expensive, hard to find, and have numerous drawbacks. (MORE)
Sorry No. and no one produces an adaptor to convert the praktica lenses to canon fit either.
All of canon's EF-mount lenses will fit on all camera bodies in the Canon EOS system. Simply, if the lens says "EF" on it, then it will fit any Canon camera that says "EOS" on it.. If it says EF-S on it, it won't fit on a EOS film body or a full-frame digital. EF-S lenses only work on EOS digital S…LRs with APS-C sized sensors (Digital Rebel and 10/20/30/40/50D series) . If it says FD on it, it won't fit on any EOS body. These are the old manual-focus lenses from the 70's and early 80's. (MORE)

Pentax screwmount lenses (M42) will fit differently branded cameras with the same mount. It will easily fit other camera mounts including digital bodies using a cheap adapter. Just make sure you use the correct version of the adapter that focuses correctly to infinity. With Pentax K-mount lenses,… there are existing adapters that will mount these to a four/thirds system camera, the Canon EF EOS, the Minolta MA or Sony Alpha and the Leica M39 screw mount. Take note that in most digital bodies, the lens can only be used at manual mode. Some camera models will not meter through it even at stop down. Pentax dSLR bodies will meter through them and add Shake Reduction and focus confirmation even if the lens is full manual. (MORE)
It all depends on the lens mount. New Canon digital cameras accept EF and/or EF-S lenses. Some Canon film cameras use the EF lenses as well, though older cameras used the FD mount. If your lens has an FD mount and you would like to use it on a new digital camera, you can purchase a converter and it …will work. (MORE)
I would expect to use both the 55-250 and the 50mm F1.8. The zoomwill get you in close enough for where there's enough light on yoursubject. hope this helps you .......
The Canon T70 camera uses Canon FD lenses. These are manual-focus lenses, but have auto exposure when used with the T70. Most FD lenses made by Canon are very high quality. They can almost always be found at modest prices through a well-known internet personal marketplace website.
If the name has any term like 35mm or anything of the like, it is a film camera, using 35mm roll film.
Not really, however, its a much better feeling and requires alot more skill than using a digital camera. Using 35mm is a great feeling dispite all the money and time..
Yes, with the right mount adapter. Canon EF lenses were introduced in 1987 for Canon's new EOS auto-focus cameras. All EF lenses fit all EOS film and digital cameras. Some Canon DSLR cameras, such as the digital Rebels, have an APS-size (smaller) sensor. These cameras can use EF lenses with full a…utomation, and can also use the EF-S lenses designed especially for them. The advantage of EF-S lenses is that they are more compact than EF lenses. The EF-S lenses will only work on some Canon DSLR bodies, so compatibility should be determined before purchasing an EF-S lens. (MORE)
The Canon A-1 used FD mount manual-focus lenses. The earlier FL Canon lenses are also usable on the Canon A-1, but metering is a bit more cumbersome. The current Canon EF mount was introduced in 1987 for auto-focus lenses. There is no compatibility between FD and EF lens mounts. The Canons with …FD mount include: Canon F-1 (1971) Canon FTb (1971) Canon FTbn (1973) Canon EF (1973) Canon TLb (1974) Canon TX (1975) Canon F-1n (1976) Canon AE-1 (1976) Canon AT-1 (1977) Canon A-1 (1978) Canon AV-1 (1979) Canon New F-1 (1981) Canon AE-1 Program (1981) Canon AL-1 (1982) Canon T50 (1983) Canon T70 (1984) Canon T80 (1985) Canon T90 (1986) Canon T60 (1990) (MORE)
There are too many lenses to list that are compatible with Canon cameras as it is one of the most popular cameras on the market. Give amazon a quick search as well as Google and you will find more than enough to keep you well stocked.
The Canon AE1 lens will not fit a Canon digital. You can buy an adapter that will allow the lens to work in manual focus mode on the digital camera.

yes, the older style lenses are still compatible. However the opposite is not true, new style EOS lenses wont fit 35mm bodies
It is an SLR camera in the sense that it uses the same mechanism for capturing a picture, but instead of film, there's an electronic sensor that the image is recorded on. Instead of exposed film, you get image files that you can then use for whatever purpose you require.
Yes, if your camera has the detachable lens option (lens' are able to be removed from the base of the camera). All brands that are the same as your camera will fit.
Canon. Canon is a company focused on making great analog or digital cameras while SONY is more broad in focus.
Chinon lenses are either M42, 'Pentax screw.' which can fit any digital body with the relevant adapter, or Pentax K bayonet which will fit Pentax or (most) Samsung SLRs. NB they will only meter stopped down to the taking aperture, and offer neither autofocus nor shutter priority/programmed modes.… There is also the fact that film SLR lenses need longer focal lengths than their digital cousins due to the sensor being smaller, thus a 50mm standard lens for film is a short telephoto for digital.

Canon digital sir is better than other sir cameras because it provides better pictures. The quality of the pictures is a lot clearer and easier to modify.
A LOT higher resolution, and you can't accidentally delete that good shot by pushing the wrong button. Plus, film images just look smoother than digital.
It entirely depends on the lens mount. Sigma manufactures lenses to fit all major brand camera bodies - 'Sigma 35mm" does not really say much about the lens, I'm sorry to say.
