Canon EOS 600 Film Camera
Simple, reliable, sturdy, comfortable, good looking and cheap! It will take any EF lens (no EF-S) and the 6 segment metering system will never let you down! On top of all you have a depth of field button and 5 fps that will eat a whole film in seconds! The flash sync is 125 and top shutter speed is 2000. If you need higher shutter speed and flash sync at 250 you need to go for the EOS 620 although the auto focus is a lot slower and it is only 3 fps compare to 5 fps with EOS 600. Before you buy you need to know that all these cameras do suffer from the black like glue greasy residue on its metal shutters! If you do not know how to fix it DO NOT BUY!!! Do not pay more than a few quit for it as it might look good from outside even the shutter itself but as soon as you fire it at 5 fps the black goo will manifest itself and if you leave it there it will glue the shutter curtains! Once you manage to remove it this camera will probably work forever without any problems! The other issue that these have is the LCD display! I’ve never had one like this myself but it is well documented that sometimes it fails after 28 years! Read full review

It's one of the best!
The canon 600 is one of the best canon made, oil on blinds aside, it still makes the grade and you get a lot of camera now for peanuts. I bought 3 of these new over the years (prefer them to my EOS1, T90, A1) as I was so impressed, I have over 10 now (secondhand buys of ebay) I still use them even though I have gone 98% digital as film still rules! If you fancy dipping your toe into the dip and dunk brigade then pick one of the up and be amazed for the price of a cheap SD card.

An good camera- but you may have to work at it.
Like other early Canon EOS cameras, the EOS 600/630 often suffers from the "sticky shutter" problem, caused by a grease like substance fouling the shutter blades. There are ways in which this problem can be managed, however. It's possible to remove the grease using cotton buds lightly moistened with cellulose thinner (xylene), provided you take care not to put too much pressure on the shutter blades. Don't use so much thinner that you end up spreading the grease into other parts of the camera. Use the minimum necessary to remove the grease. It's quite easy if you take your time. If done carefully and repeatedly, this will solve the problem. Store the camera lying on it's back when not in use. When in working order, the EOS 600/630 is a useful camera with it's die cast chassis, multiple exposure modes and built in 5 fps motordrive. Personally, I prefer it over the EOS 100 even though that camera has a higher specification. If you find the prices of Canon EF lenses a little high, a popular alternative is to use a manual focus lens with an adapter. The short flange focal distance or register of the Canon EF mount makes it possible to adapt most manual 35mm lenses, including Pentax M42 screw mount, Nikon F, Contax/Yashica, Rollei, Tamron Adaptall, and others. Pentax K mount lenses cannot be used without modification and Minolta and Canon FD mount lenses can only be used with adapters containing additional optical elements, which act as mild teleconverters and often degrade the optical quality. Certain lenses have protruding rear elements which will foul the mirror of the EOS 600 in operation. This applies to the Enna 28mm f3.5, the Rollei 35mm f2.8, certain Leica wide angles, the Zenitar 16mm with M42 mount, and a few others. Some manual lens adapters which are not "chipped" can cause the camera to lock up, due to their activating a switch in the camera body just behind the lens mount, visible on the left side when viewed from the front, which tells the camera that an EF lens has been attached. A minute's work on the adapter with a multi-tool is all it takes to eliminate this problem, you just remove the part of the mounting flange which comes into contact with the switch. When using the EOS 600 with a manual lens and adapter, you can use stopped down metering in either the Aperture Priority (AV) or Manual modes. In either case, the first thing you have to do after selecting the mode is to set the aperture indicated on the top LCD display panel to 1.0. In AV mode, the camera will then set the correct shutter speed as you adjust the aperture using the lens aperture ring. In Manual mode, you can set the shutter speed you want, then press the button marked M to the side of the lens mount to get an exposure reading, which is displayed as CL, oo, or OP. You can then adjust the aperture on the lens until you get the correct exposure indication (oo). Or you can use a seperate lightmeter, and set the desired shutter speed on the camera body and the aperture on the lens. To obtain correct exposure with colour negative films, I suggest you apply -0.5 stop exposure compensation when using adapted manual focus lenses with the EOS 600 series cameras. The Grip GR 10 is a useful accessory for the 600 series cameras which provides a larger grip and an extra attachment point for a wrist strap. The Grip GR 20 has a remote control terminal for connection of the Remote Switch 60T3. Interchangeable focusing screens and data backs are also available. Read full review

hard wearing camera, but not very easy to use
this camera is a very sterdy and hardy camera however as 35mm caamera's go it isnt the most easy to use, it is a good camera but could be made better by making it easier to use, however i do normally shoot on a canon DSLR which are obvisoly simpler to use and when shooting on film i use a pentax k1000 or a holga again siple cameras to use!
