    This a.m., while innocently looking for a small part for my EOS 620 on The ACH!-Shun Site I came across a listing for an EOS 630 with grip, strap, new battery and manual. Being fascinated with it being a real metal bodied camera (as opposed to the polymer bodies of the 620 and 650 that I already own)- I just couldn't resist the Buy-it–now price of $53.00! It's been at least 6 (I think) weeks since I've done this!!! :surprised:

    If anyone would like to give a mini-review of the EOS-630 or otherwise comment on this compulsive aquisition, please feel free to do so. :confused:


    p.s.
    (I've always been amazed at how well my 650 and 620 have continued to work flawlessly for about 20 years!) :smile:

    Congratulations on your NEW camera. I owned and 620 briefly before buying my 630. There are basically no differences other that higher flash sinc on the 620 and faster frame rate on the 630. I also think the 630 has some special programming modes but I never use them. The reason I preferred the 630 over the 620 is because you can leave the film lead out by means of a custom function. How much do I like my 630? I just paid $140 to get the rewind mechanism fixed, the same money I paid for the camera.
