Technically, an ideal automated imaging tool would be able to supplement whatever creative intention might be, and ensure there's an automated exposure mode to help you fulfill it effortlessly and without much hassle. For decades, Canon has been the forerunner in incorporating automation into cameras and naturally, they possess the require technological advantage accumulated over the last few decades in this specialized playing field of theirs. Who would forget the Canon AE-1 which has rocked the consumer market back in 1975 ? The multimode Canon A-1 of 1978, the highly versatile Canon New F-1 of 1981 that redefined professional camera standard with its innovative multi-metering capabilities and lastly, the mighty Canon T90 that has changed the course in many of today's SLR camera design concept ?

In many ways, early EOS bodies carried a lot of similarities with the FD mount T90 of cause in addition to autofocus not found in the manual focus T90. Those T90 users may find the EOS exposure control and operation very familiar in nature, the further inclusion of autofocus feature was quite attractive which actually saw there were quite a following from the FD based system users migrating to the EOS for that reason.

Extensive EXPOSURE CONTROL capabilities

Intelligent PROGRAM AE with Program SHIFT function Automatically set shutter speed/aperture combinations in the program AE mode can be changed when the photographer needs a specific shutter speed or aperture while shooting in the program AE mode. The camera automatically switches to the shutter- priority AE or aperture- priority AE mode through simple operation of the electronic input dial.

Shutter Priority AE when you require total control over subject movement. With the EOS 620, you can set the shutter speed in half -steps anywhere from 1/4000 to 30 seconds i.e. The shutter speed can be set in half -steps from 1/4000 to 30 seconds. The camera will set the aperture value automatically for correct exposure.

Aperture Priority AE This exposure mode gives you optimum control over the aperture value, which determines your "zone of focus". Once you've set the aperture value, the camera will automatically select a shutter speed to ensure correct exposure.

MANUAL override Manual exposure offers you the maximum amount of creative control possible, because you select both shutter speed and aperture value in accordance with the creative effect you want to achieve.

(AEB) Automatic Exposure Bracketing A feature first introduced by Contax during the early '80 but proved to be a more convenient feature than manually adjusted exposure compensation. The EOS 620's feature can be used when the photographer wants a choice of different exposures of the same scene. You can intentionally vary exposure up to plus or minus five steps in half-step increments.



The EOS 620 automatically makes three continuous exposures in the sequence of underexposure/correct exposure in accordance with the camera's meter/overexposure. Exposure can be varied up to plus or minus five steps in half-step increments.

Multiple Exposure Multiple exposure lets the user shoot from two to nine exposures on a single frame without complicated film transport manipulation. The highlight both the EOS650 and EOS620 camera's technical proficiency. Therefore, it is useful to differentiate between the two models by clearly communicating the following EOS 620 features as compared:

Electronic Input Dial Fist used in the T90. A revolutionary way to set camera functions: shooting mode, film winding mode, shutter speed, aperture value, exposure compensation, and manual-set ISO film speed.

EL (Electro -Luminescence) Illumination The display panel illumination button activate soft blue glow that makes the LCD activates a soft blue glow that makes the LCD panel clearly visible, even in total darkness.

Some System Accessories

QUARTZ Date Back E This easy-to-interchange back enables simple data recording. There are five modes to choose from. *Auto date (month /day/yea r, day/month/year or year/month/day) *Day/hour/minute *Arbitrary six-digit number *Frame counter number off . The calendar is programmed from 1987 up through the year 2029, and clock precision is within :J: 30 seconds a month.

The Quartz Date Back E also offers a film loading date check function, which you can use to confirm the date the film was loaded. Handling is never been so easy with this Databack, select your preferred functions of encoding, a press of a button is all it takes. Both the dta back is interchangeable with other EOS bodies, especially the Technical Back with the EOS630 that followed.

TECHNICAL Back E The Canon Technical Back E is a superb, multifunction back that can be used to work with all kinds of technical data, In addition to imprinting data and arbitrary comments (up to 30 digits) on the film, it can also memorize shooting data such as shutter speed, aperture value, lens focal length and film speed. With the accessory Interface Unit TB, you can connect the

Technical Back E to a personal computer and issue commands to your EOS 620 via the personal computer's keyboard. Another accessory, Keyboard Unit E, imprints comments on the film in English, French, German and Spanish.
