Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the Canon EOS
620/650. Designed with the most advanced and
innovative technology available, this high-
performance AF/AE SLA camera with a built-in
motor drive offers you genuine, creative
freedom and picture-taking ease.
Enjoy Taking Photos More Comfortably
This is EOS design theme. The EOS 620/650
has brilliantly made it come true thanks to the
high speed, precise autofocus system and the
bulltin motor drive capable of winding film up to
three frames per second which maximizes your
potential.
Needless to say film speed setting and film
transportation have been completely autom-
ated. A few of the many features of the EQS
620/650 are the evaluative metering function
(Factor 6 light analysis system) in which the
camera automatically recognizes subject pat-
tern and its size so correct exposure can be ob-
tained in backlit situations, and the intelligent
program AE mode which selects the ideal pro-
gram line according to the characteristics of
the lens in use.
In addition, your photographic oplions are fur-
ther expanded by exclusive accessories such as
the Speedlites 420EZ and 300EZ that respond to
a wide range of illuminations from dark Surroun-
dings to fill-in flash, the Quartz Date Back E that
imprints data, and the Technical Back E that
memorizes exposure control data.
For à lll understanding of the EQS 620/650, please read
this instruction booklel carefully before using the camera
While reading these instructions unfold the front and
back flaps of this booklet for easy reference to the
camera's paris
"EQS" is derived from “Electro-Optical System”
originating from the completely electronic data
communication between the camera and lens Fur-
ther, "EQS" is the Goddess of Dawn in Greek
mythology — heralding the new, genuine AF
syslem generation
"EF" lens stands for "Electro-Focus” and adopts
the lens-integral autofocus system which uses
special motors to make precise and high-speed
autofocusing possible whatever the lens focal
length,

[VIEWFINDER INFORMATION]
Make sure that both values remain continuous-

When both values blink, exposure is incorrect.
Use an ND filter in bright settings and switch to
flash photography in dark settings.
When the automatically-set shutter speed
is too slow to hand-hold, the camera will
sound a long beeper tone to warn you. We
recommend using a tripod or flash.
The camera selects the ideal program line
according to the characteristics of the lens
in use, Le., the maximum or minimum aper-
ture and lens focal length. This is referred
to as "Intelligent Program AE." For further
information on the program line, please
see pp. 79 and 80.
This program AE mode has the same
characteristics as the one selected when
the main switch is set to the green "0°
mark (see p.14). However, the "ONE

automatically set so use the setting
described on this page when you want to
use the “SERVO” AF mode or “C" film win-
ding mode.

(2) Program Shift Function (EOS 620 Only)
[PURPOSE]
With the EOS 620, you can change the
automatically-set shutter speed/aperture com-
binations of the program AE mode. This func-
tion is particularly useful when you need a
specific shutter speed or aperture while
shooting in the program AE mode.
Be sure to set the main switch to the “A” or

need a fast shutter speed suddenly to freeze a
fast-moving subject while shooting in the pro-
gram AE mode, turn the electronic input dial to
set a fast shutter speed such as 1/500 second.

(3) Shutter-Priority AE
[PURPOSE]
In this mode the shutter speed is manually set and
the camera automatically chooses the correct
aperture for the lighting conditions. This mode is
best for taking pictures of moving subjects by con-
trolling the shutter speed. Faster shutter speeds
freeze subject motion while slower shutter
speeds can produce artistic blur effects.

1) While pressing the shooting mode selector,
turn the electronic input dial until “Tv” appears
in the display panel.
2) Remove your finger from the shooting mode
selector. At this point, the initial shutter speed
setting Is always 125 (1/125 sec).

Depth of Field
When your subject is in focus, there is a certain
area in front of it and behind it which will also be in
focus. This range of sharpness is called "depth of
field"
Depth of field has the following characteristics:
1) The smaller the aperlure, the wider the depth

To check the depth of field (1)
Push the depth-of-field check button and the
camera will stop-down the aperture to either the
automatically-calculated value (e.g. shutter-priori-
ty AE), or the one set manually (e.g. aperture:
priority AE). As you look through the viewfinder
with the button pushed in, you can see the range
of sharpness, i.e. the depth of field.
It 1s impossible to check depth of field when the main
switch is set al the green * CJ * mark.
To check the depth of field (2)
Press the shutter button halfway and note the
aperture value. Find the two aperture values on
the depth-of-field scale on the lens which corres-
pond to thal value, Then draw imaginary lines
from those two values 10 the distance scale. The
effective depth of field lies between those two
distances. For example, using a stangard 50mm
lens focused at 5m with the aperture set at 1/11,
depth of field extends from approx. 2.7m to 10m
(approx. 8.8ft to 32.8ft) away. Any subject from
2.7m to 10m away will be in reasonably sharp
focus.
There are some lenses which have no depth-of-lield
scale so follow step (1)

5. Partial Metering
This camera has an evaluative metering function
which allows you to obtain the correct exposure
without exposure compensation in normal backlit
photography (see p. 18). Use the partial metering
mode, however, for stage photography where
there is a big difference in brightness between the
main subject and the background, and when you
want to control the exposure.
The partial metering mode can be used
regardless of the camera's mode, except
when the main switch is set to the full auto
position ( ©)
The partial metering area is approximately
6.5% of the picture area.
The AE lock mechanism automatically works

8. Multiple Exposures (EOS 620 Only)
The EOS 620's provision for multiple ex-
posures allows you to take two or more ex-
posures on the same frame for a creative ef-
fect. Preset multiple exposures up to nine
frames with the single operation of the elec-
tronic input dial are possible.

Press both the shooting mode selector and
the exposure compensation button
simultaneously. The "ME" mark indicating
multiple exposure status will then appear in
the display panel and the frame counter will
become “1”.
While pressing both turn the electronic in-
put dial to the desired number of ex-
posures. For example, set “3” on the frame
counter If you want to make three ex-
posures on the same frame.
s While shooting, the "ME" mark will blink
to indicate the camera is in the multiple
exposure status,
e After the preset number of exposures
have been completed, the film
automatically advances to the next
frame.
[Clearing Preset Exposures]

Follow steps 1) and 2) on p. 52 and turn the
electronic input dial to return the frame
counter to “1.
While shooting
The operating procedures are basically the
same as mentioned above, but turn the
electronic input dial until the frame counter
is blank.
[Exposure Compensation]
It is necessary to correct the exposure depen-
ding on the situation because the same frame
is exposed several times. Use the exposure
compensation function referring to pp.46—47.

Notes
1.
The preceding table is a general guideline.
The actual amount of exposure com-
pensation varies according to the situation.
Your technique will benefit greatly from
practice.
It is not advisable to make multiple ex-
posures on the first or last several frames
due to possible film curl which may
adversely affect image registration.
. Generally, the first exposure of a seres
should be a relatively dark subject so that
the image in the next exposure will show up
clearly.
When using a negative film, please inform
the developer that you have taken multiple
exposures with the negative film, or your
picture taken in multiple exposure may not
be printed.

2. Dedicated Flash Photography
opeediite 420EZ7
Speedlite 300EZ
(1) Use the Canon Speedilites 420EZ and 300EZ
as fill-in flash in outdoor settings as well as for
normal flash when shooting at night or in a dim-
ly-lit room. These units feature a built-in AF aux-
lliary light function for dark situations, so you
can perform AF flash photography.
Fill-in flash:
This technique utilizes a flash unit as an
auxiliary light to prevent subject underex-
posure in backlit situations, Generally, the
exposure level between the main subject il-
luminated by the flash and the background
in ambient light must be balanced to avoid
unnatural effects. With the Canon
Speedlites 420EZ and 300EZ there is no
need to balance this exposure level
because it is automatically controlled.
Upon flash charge completion in the Program AE
mode, the aperture value and the X-sync shutter
speed are automatically set. X-sync shutter speed
is set between 1/60 and 1/125 sec with the EOS
650 and between 1/60 and 1/250 sec with the
EOS 620.

(2) Other Canon Speediites
Follow the steps below for automatic flash
photography:
1) Set the camera's shooting mode to “M”.
2) Set the desired X-sync shutter speed between
30 and 1/125 sec with the EQS 650 and bet-
ween 30 and 1/250 sec with the EQS 620.
* If the shutter speed is faster than 1/125
sec (EOS 650) or 1/250 sec (EOS 620), it is
automatically set to 1/125 sec (EOS 650) or
1/1250 sec (EOS 620).
3) Sel the aperture on the flash.
4) Set the same flash aperture on the camera.
* When using the 300TL, set the flash mode
set button to A-TTL or FEL for TTL
automatic flash photography.
« Do not use the 277T and 299T in the "PRO-
GRAM" mode. Be sure to set the flash to
“F. NO. SET" mode.
= The 2441 and the multiple flash acces-
sories for the T90 cannot be used.
62
(3) Other Manufacturers’ Flashes
The X-sync speed can be set to 1/125 or slower
with the EQS 650 and 1/250 sec or slower with
the EOS 620. (1/60 sec or slower with the EOS
650 and 1/125 sec or slower with the EOS 620
with a large, studio-type flash), but please con-
firm correct synchronization before use (due to
their flash duration).
Use a Canon Speedlite with this camera.
Using a flash (usually with more than two
contacts) or flash accessory of another
| manufacturer may cause the camera to |
work improperly or even damage the
camera itself.
When a large, studio-type flash or general
cable connection type flash is used with
this camera, the Canon Hot Shoe Adapter
is required to connect the flash with the
camera.
3. Bulb (Long Exposure)
Use the bulb mode for exposures longer than 30
seconds like astro or night photography.
1) Set the shooting mode to “M”.
2) Turn the electronic input dial until “DulLb” (next
to 307) displays.
3) Set the aperture value by turning the elec-
tronic input dial while pressing the manual
aperture set button.
* The camera requires relatively little power
in the bulb mode saving battery usage.
» Bulb operation time displays by a series of
three bars and numbers from 1 to 30. Each
bar mark indicates 30 seconds. Maximum

4. Shooting with Infrared Film
When using black-and-white infrared film make a
slight adjustment in focus with the red infrared
index.
For example, focus the subject first, then if the
lens is focused at 5m on the distance scale, turn
the manual focusing ring to align the 5m mark
with the red dot and release the shutter.
When using infrared film, use a deep red
filter as specified by the manufacturer.
The infrared index mark position has
been computed for infrared film usage
with peak sensitivity at 800nm.
Head the manufacturer s instructions
when using color infrared film.
Speedlite 420EZ
Speedlite 300EZ
Speedlites 420EZ/300EZ
These are high-performance, electronic flash
units featuring A (Advanced)-TTL automatic
flash output control, which respond to a wide
range of illumination from dark surroundings to
bright (fill-in flash). They have a built-in auto inter-
nal zoom mechanism in the flash head which
automatically adjusts the flash coverage angle to
use flash energy more effectively, In addition, the
rapid-fire flash system enables you to take a
flash picture in no less than 1 second with the
300EZ or 1.5 seconds with the 420EZ. The guide
numbers are 35 (ISO 100+m) or 116 (ISO 100-+ft.)
with the 420EZ, and 28 (ISO 100+m) or 93 (ISO
100+ft.) with the 300EZ.
* The above figures show the guide numbers
when the flash head is set at the 50mm posi-
tion at full charge.

EF Lenses
The greatest feature of SLR cameras is that they
accept a variety of interchangeable lenses rang-
ing from fish-eye to telephoto. Canon provides the
following 13 different interchangeable lenses plus
an extender exclusively for the EF 300mm 1/2.8L
for just as many applications. Canon EF lenses
succeed the FD lens’ established reputation for
high resolution, superb color balance and easy
handling.
Helpful Hint:
The most important point in lens selection is identi-
fying a clear idea of the kind of subjects you want
to photograph. For example, a short telephoto Is
indispensable for a portrait, while a wide-angle
and a telephoto are necessary for landscape
photography. Most people, however, want enough
flexibility to take shots of the family, travel
scenery, sports events, and other subjects. That's
why Canon's lens system offers various types of
zoom lenses.

Caring for Your Camera
As with any precision instrument proper care and
maintenance involve a few simple rules and good
common sense. Observing them will keep your
camera in top condition at all times. We recom-
mend cleaning your camera periodically.
Cleaning tools: blower brush, lens cleaning fluid,
lens cleaning tissue, silicone-
treated cloth
1) To clean the lens surface and the viewfinder
eyepiece:
Blow off dust with the blower brush and gently
wipe the lens surface with a lens cleaning
lissue slightly moistened with lens cleaner
2) To clean the reflecting mirror and the focusing
screen:
Only use a blower brush. If more cleaning is
necessary NEVER attempt to do it yourself,
take it to an authorized Canon Service Facility.
3) To clean the film chamber:
Use a blower brush to occasionally remove ac-
cumulated film dust particles that might
scratch the film.
4) To clean the film pressure plate and the film
guide rails:
Lightly wipe the surface with a lens cleaning
tissue moistened with lens cleaning fluid.

thoroughly Salt and sand are the cameras
WOrSt enemies
* Aerosol spray dusl removers are nol recom-
mended for the shutter curtain area, If used

STORAGE
The best thing you can do for your camera is to
use it regularly. If you must store it for awhile
remove the battery. Then wrap the camera in a
clean, soft cloth and place it in a cool, dry, dust
free place. If you store the camera body and lens
separately, attach the body and rear lens caps.
AVOID STORING YOUR CAMERA IN THE
FOLLOWING PLACES:
s "Hol spols’ such as a car trunk. rear window
shell or glove compartment
« Laboratories or other areas where chemicals
may cause corrosion
* In direct sunligh!
Carefully check the operation of each part
after prolonged storage before shooting im-
portant events.

1. Liquid Crystal Display
The display panel uses a liquid crystal to display ex-
posure information. After about five years, the display
may become hard to read.
The liquid crystal may respond relatively slow in low
temperatures about 0°C/32°F and the display may
become dark in high temperatures about 60°C/140°F.
Regular functioning resumes in temperatures about
20°C/68°F.
Take your camera to the nearest Canon Service
Facility for the replacement of the liquid crystal.
(Replacement will be at owner's expense.)
MN aman
2. Blinking “bc” Display
A "bc" appearing with battery check bar marks may
blink in the display panel to warn you of battery replace-
ment or camera malfunction. Perform the following
operations:
1) Check the battery first.
2) If battery voltage is insufficient, replace the battery,
3) If battery voltage is sufficient, remove the battery
from the battery chamber and reinstall it,
4) Release the shutter-once.
If the blinking “bc” disappears, the camera has
returned to normal condition and you can keep
shooting. If it does not disappear after repeating
these operations several times, there has been a
camera malfunction and the camera needs repair.
Take the camera to the nearest Canon Service
Facility.
3. Lithium Battery Pack (1)
This camera uses one, six-volt lithium battery pack
(2CRS5). Try to make a habit of checking the battery at the
following times:
Alter loading a new battery
After prolonged storage
If the shutter will not release
Shooting in low temperatures
Before shooting important events
6 «© © & +
1] Wipe the battery terminals and the camera contacts
with a clean, dry cloth before loading to ensure pro-
per contact.
2) Remove the battery if you do not expect to use the
camera for about three weeks or longer.
3) Battery performance deteriorates slightly in temper-
atures below 0°Cf32°F. Keep the camera and a
spare battery pack close to your body orina pocket
to keep them warm until you are ready.
Battery may explode or cause burns if
disassembled, recharged, shorted or ex-
posed to high temperature or disposed in
fire,
73
4. Lithium Battery Pack (2)
Even if one blinking bar mark or no bar mark ap-
pears in the display panel during battery check, ex-
posure will be correct as long as the shutter
releases. Automatic wind and rewind, however,
may not be possible because of insufficient bat-
tery power,
Also, if the camera stops during wind or rewind all
the film transport bars start blinking to warn you.
Automatic rewind re-starts after new battery pack
replacement and pressing the film rewind but-
ton.
5. X-ray Examinations at Airports
Film passing through X-ray examinations at air-
ports may be exposed and ruined even when load-
ed. To avoid accidental exposure, tell the inspec-
tor to hand-check your camera and film,

As shown below, the evaluative metering system
automatically measures light in six different
zones, analyzing lighting conditions, subject pat-
tern and subject size while putting an emphasis
on the main subject.
¢ The metering system automatically switches
to the partial metering mode when the partial
metering button is pressed.
