Welcome to the forum.

I definitely looks like one of the 'Rebel' series. That would be the North American designation anyway.

This site has all of the different EOS film bodies listed, with specs...but I don't think there are images.

Here is a search for images of the 500N. Doesn't quite look like this one...but it's hard to tell.

As for a fair price to offer...I would check E-bay to see what they are going for. It also depends on which lens is included...but I would guess that $100-$150 would be in the neighborhood.

looks like the EOS Rebel 2000 (america) EOS 300 (Europe) EOS Kiss III (Japan)

Begs me to ask... why are the emblems stripped off?

Ebay showing them going for under $50 for body only. Some kits are going for under $100. If it is being sold by a camera store, then expect to pay a little more. ($ = US dollars).

Yeah i did see the 300, Um it comes with a 28-80mm lense i think. He wants £60 for it which i guess is about $95-$105 (not sure on exchange rate) so thats a pretty good deal? Comes with manual and new batterys.

O and thats not a picture of the actual camera he has, I searched google for "Canon SLR" and saw that which looks like the same model. So i dont know about the ebelems being stripped off lol

Well if that's not the actual camera it could be a different model; there are several Canon film SLRs which look similar.

£60 is generally a reasonable price for a second-hand autofocus film SLR and lens. Film SLRs have come down in price a lot, and it's not hard to find them at that sort of price so don't feel like you'd be missing out on a great deal if you don't buy. I would ask for the actual model name/number before buying.
