It was aimed at the ‘prosumer’ market, offering advanced features and functionality at an affordable price.

The EOS 500N comes a built-in AF auxiliary light that helps increase focus speed and accuracy in low light conditions. The camera uses the EF mount, designed to support advanced automation, which uses electrical signals to communicate between the body and lens. This allows the camera to alter focus and aperture using electrical motors within EF lenses.

Canon was already a well-established camera company by the time the EOS 500N was released and the camera was very well received by the photography community. It was a great option for those who wanted to step up from their point-and-shoot cameras to a more advanced camera but still wanted something that was easy to use.

The Canon EOS 500N is ideal for those who are transitioning from point-and-shoot to advanced cameras or who are already familiar with Canon's digital EOS gear and want to try film. With its built-in motor drive, EF lens autofocus system, and variety of exposure modes, it offers advanced features that can help take your photography to the next level. The compact size and lightweight body of the camera make it easy to carry around, and with the capability of shooting with film speeds of ISO 25-5000, you'll be ready to take photos in any lighting situation.
