|Canon EOS 620 (1987)|
In the mid-1980s, Canon decided to abandon and render obsolete, their FD mount, to make way for new autofocus lenses with the Canon EF mount. The reason was that the new EF mount will make better AF. So in March 1987, their first ever AF camera, the EOS 650, was introduced. Two months later, the EOS 620 followed with identical features and looks but some improvements. Word quickly spread, and not long after, Canon became the professional photographer's camera. The rest was history.
The Canon EOS 620, which I'm featuring here, is a full frame film camera that takes in Canon's EF lenses (not compatible with Canon FD lenses). I happen to own one for a while, but never had the chance to use it because it was hard to find 2CR5 batteries to power up the camera. Then lucky I was able to borrow one just to test if the camera was working, which was 100% functional.
