    The best EOS film cameras? Well, that depends on your application. Most of their models are excellent, and several have special features that make them, well, special.

    1V - Latest top of the line pro model, most capable camera ever made. Weather sealed. More expensive than the others. Everybody wants one.
    3 - Same feature set as the 1V, adds eye controlled focus. VERY noisy. Not sure about weather sealing.
    1N - If you are willing to work with only five or seven focus points, this one is quite nice. Not weather sealed. Very underrated camera!
    7N/7NE - Even with the vertical grip is very lightweight and exceptionally silent. Very full-featured. 7NE adds eye-controlled focus.
    1N-RS - Pellicle mirror, extremely fast response. Large camera. ALT: EOS RT is much smaller and lighter than 1N-RS, has a rather odd interface, has the first generation AF system, and being so old it will require servicing before you can put it to use. But it's such an excellent camera that I've acquired three.

    Let me put this to the Canonistas here:

    If you were going to take a body, mount a 50/1.4 on it and bang it around everyday in your bag, hardly ever or never use a flash, only use the center AF point, want reasonable focus in low light, (ballet and such) and not spend more than $200 on the body, which would you get out of the ones listed above?

    EOS 3, hands down. It's the best you can get with that budget. $200 for that camera is an incredible value.

    Thanks!

    I was kinda stuck between the EOS3 and the 1N but I think I know where I'm going now.

    On the contrary, if you're shooting ballet, you'll want a quiet camera. 7N would be the one, available for around $100. Super quiet, and they're all reasonably new. The EOS 3 sounds like a car door slamming on a cat's tail. Don't get me wrong, I love mine, but definitely not the camera to shoot in a theater.

    I like my lowly Canon Rebel 2000, Ti, and T2 cameras. Obviously not in the same league as most of the cameras listed here, but they are very capable cameras, and you can often buy one for a song on the auction site.

    Put a good lens on one and not often would you need a "better" Canon camera.

    Of course, you might want a higher end model, and that's fine too.

    I really enjoy the simple ergonomics of the AE-1P with an action grip screwed over the battery cover and a small-ish prime lense. I would suggest it, other than the fact the post was about EF cameras...

    I have to agree with flatulent1; the EOS3 is LOUD (nice description of the clunk-squeal, by the way). I love mine, but definitely not the right body for ballet. I think something from the Elan 7 series would be better (I have two of these as well), with the battery grip.
