So, I found a Canon EOS Rebel 2000 Film camera while cleaning out my basement and it is mine to use. I am not sure what lens it has, but I think the whole setup cost my parents about $600 in the late nineties.I can't take pictures of it ATM, but it is this exact setup:
Sorry the picture is kind of small, but that is the best I could find. The lens has a switch that says AF and MF, says 28-80mm, has a flower with .38m/1.3ft next to it, and the fine focus part says "quantaray 58mm 1A"
This is the lens, I think
It has no film at the moment or batteries, and I don't have any time to get the stuff to test it out today.
Basically I want to know everything I need to know about this camera. How difficult is it to shoot moving objects (runners, cyclists, skiers, rivers)? Would this be good as a beginners camera for skiing? what does the stuff on the lens mean? Should I upgrade it in any ways? Is there any ways to convert film to digital other than a scanner? I also have a tripod, it's pretty big and goes about as tall as me, should I bring that with me when shooting stuff? What kind of film should I buy?

Fun fact, my parents used to have a darkroom in our basement. thought that was kind of cool
