Canon EOS 620

The Canon EOS 620 was introduced in May 1987.

Its original price was 146,000 yen (with EF 35-70mm f/3.5-4.5) or 108,000 yen (body only).
It was designed as a high-end version of the EOS 650, with the following features not included in the 650: Shiftable program auto, auto bracketing up to ±5 stops in 1/2 stop increments, maximum 9 multiple exposures, and even illumination of the external LCD panel (the world's first in a camera).


My brother was a proud owner of this camera shortly after its appearance (unfortunately, he gave up this great hobby decades ago...). I remained faithful to my Canon A1, T90 and Hasselblad 500cm for some time, because I was rather skeptical about the autofocus function. Gradually, this settled and a year or two later, a Canon EOS 600 found itself in my photo bag.

A clear, informative viewfinder display with the most important data - i.e. shutter speed and aperture - awaits you when looking through the viewfinder. In addition, there is also the display of the correct focus and under- and overexposure warning or an electronic light balance in manual mode. Simple, functional - that's how I still love it today.

And remember:
No matter what you shoot with - 

The main thing is that you take pictures!
