I still like shooting film, this makes m calm Down and think about composition and light before snapping away. The newer type of autofocus cameras has too many functions, so I needed a simple camera With manual Controls as well. If you, like me, are photographing fast animals like cats and dogs, autofocus is essential. The Canon EOS 650 may seem outdated, but it is indeed a powerful tool to take serious photos. The viewfinder is one of the best compared to any camera, Bright and BIG, composing Pictures is a breeze. Youhave basic Controls, full aut or the common PASM shooting modes. Thats really enough for most. Autofocus is fast and reliable, and helps to get those Sharp photos we want. I recommend the Product and I am looking for one more camera as a backup if it fails.
The 650 was the first EOS camera put into production. It was a gutsy move for Canon to drop the FD line of lenses and cameras (especially after the fabulous T90!) and embrace the electro-optical system of autofocus lenses and their attendant cameras. They needed to hit a home-run right out of the gate to regain marketshare lost to Nikon. The features, amazing ruggedness, camera build quality, and wonderful lenses (mk I), did the trick for them.
The 650 is the most basic of the first-generation EOS cameras, and the best! While the EOS 1's soon captured the professional market, there has never been an EOS camera as reliable as the trusty 650. Proof of that can be seen on eBay, where cameras for parts/repair RARELY feature a 650! They are now selling for significantly less than the plastiky consumer-level bodies on eBay, probably due to their lack of a pop-up flash.
BUY ONE! Keep it as a back-up for your plastic digital Rebel camera when it fails you (see parts/repair), or let your kids learn photography with it. I promise you, this camera will NOT disappoint!
I bought this film camera so that I could share lenses with a prospective digital camera from Canon. Film cameras, in my calculation, are the main scene since film has has so much more full color resolution than digital. The "bit rate" is much higher for film cameras.
This camera has automatic film advance, auto focus, and auto exposure - shutter and diaphragm. There are control options for each of these. The view finder is large and bright. The meter is a six zone matrix type. The camera is of much better construction than the later popular priced models from Canon. It takes the EZ line of Canon Speedlites. It is the alternative to the 620 model - that closely resembles it, and both of which pioneered the EOS design by Canon which uses the automatic EF series of lenses.
I consider this model to be dramatically underpriced considering the superior "bit rate" of film cameras. But consider one that has had guaranteed service performed on it. This Canon 650 may have a gummed up shutter to the point of unreliability, or it may have a battery drain problem.
THE CANON EOS 650 AUTOMATIC 35MM FILM CAMERA HAS BEEN AROUND A LONG TIME AND HAS PROVEN ITSELF TIME AND TIME AGAIN. THE EOS 650 I PURCHASED WAS ALMOST LIKE NEW OUT OF THE BOX CONDITION. THIS IS THE SECOND ONE IN THE PAST WEEK I PURCHASED THAT WAS LIKE NEW OUT OF THE BOX CONDITION.
THE EOS 650 CAN STAND UP TO A PRETTY GOOD BEATING AND YOU CAN STILL KEEP SHOOTING PICTURES WITH IT. THE EOS 650 IS ONE OF THE BETTER CANON EOS CAMERAS FOR THE EASE OF PROGRAMING IT TO BE ABLE TO TAKE SPECTACULAR PHOTO'S EVERY TIME YOU USE IT. THE CAMERA IS VERY EASY TO CLEAN AND CHANGE OUT THE LENSES AND FILM.
I THINK BECAUSE ID THE CANON EOS 650' S OVER ALL PERFORMANCE FOR ALL THESE YEARS, THE EOS 650 WILL BE AROUND FOR YEARS TO COME WITH US DIE-HARD 35MM CAMERA BUFFS.
Insert battery and film, then shoot.
The EOS 650 is a somewhat boxy 35mm camera. It has the same shutter button/control wheel of the modern DSLRs. It can use all EF lenses ( no EF-S).
This is a simple camera that just works. The controls are easy to figure out with out a manual. It has all the features you need and none you don't, it was well thought out. Since the control layout is similar to a modern DSLR, this would be a great camera to lean film with or have as a cheap full frame backup body. I bought this as a backup for a 1D and it is way easier to figure out and use.
Mine came with a Promaster 28-80 lens ( a rebranded Tamron 28-80) that was made by Cosina. Cosina makes lenses for Voigtlander, Ziess, and Tamron, so they know something about making lenses. The Promaster does a good job with images but it is not L glass. The lens is on par with the Canon EF 35-80 in terms of build and Image quality.
If you are looking at these, get one, you won't be disappointed.
