    Hi there,

    On a whim, I have bought a Canon EOS 300 that was dropped (dirt cheap
    at auction). I've fixed the film door latch and rigged up a temporary
    fix for the broken / missing battery door. I have no EOS lenses at
    present.

    When I fit a Tamron Adaptall-2 lens (via the appropriate EOS adapter)
    and load a spool of "test" exposed film, nothing lights up in the
    viewfinder and the shutter won't trip. On the other hand, everything
    on the LCD looks correct ('00' for aperture to show no EOS lens
    attached).

    I suspect this means the camera is well and truly broken, but could
    someone familiar with this camera body please confirm that? I could
    borrow an EOS lens from a friend if it's thought worthwhile. I was
    expecting to have stopped-down metering with the Tamron lenses.

    Cheers, and thanks in anticipation.

    Richard
