    I am looking for a Battery pack (BP 8) for a Canon EOS Rebel G / EOS 500N / EOS Kiss. I live in western Canada so the shipping $ should be judged accordingly . Thank-you Dennis

    I thought this might be a bad spot for this request but just letting people know ... This IS a film camera but it is a 35mm but almost everybody that did film had a camera such as this. There must be somebody in this world who had or knew someone who had such a device. Still would like to purchase one.

    I know what you mean, and I have the same thing for my Canon EOS Rebel G. Unfortunately, mine is not for sale, at least not at this time. :smile:

    Just out of curiosity, why are you looking for this? Do you want to use standard batteries instead of the ones the Rebel G uses?

    One of the reasons is I am a large man with and I need the extra size to make it comfortable The AA batteries are for the weight advantage. Thanks for the input. I was just making sure that someone WAS reading the post.

    I am sure you have looked elsewhere, but I found one on Amazon.com for $29.95, in case you don't find it on APUG and want to try other options.

    Yes thank you I have seen those already. It is that I live in a different country and when it arrives at my door there is also the hidden cost of customs & the HST that makes the final cost out of my budget limit. I am sure there must be one used hidden away in someones attic or etc in western North America....,
