    EOS 650 mirror lock up

    Does the eos 650 slr have a mirror lockup feature? I have the manual. It neither shows nor mentions anything on the subject.
    I have a Nikon F2sb which is older and it has this feature. I thought it was common with slr cameras.
    Did Canon feel it was unnecessary to include with the 650? I cannot find information on this in a general internet inquiry, so I am asking here. Maybe I can learn something about the topic in general, on this forum. I am not well versed in this, so any input will be useful.
    Thanks for considering my question, anyone.

    600 has option so would assume 650 has too.

      No, that manual is for the EOS 600D - the OP is asking about the EOS 650 film camera, which was launched in 1987.

      Although mirror lock is available on most EOS digital cameras, its first appearance on EOS film cameras was with the EOS 5 in 1992.

        Oops missed it was an older camera, my brain assumed digital, 650D. Must read more carefully in future.

            The F2 Nikons were pretty much professional spec cameras so mirror lock was to be expected. The feature was also found on some lower spec model Nikons of similar age, my FT3 and FM also have it but generally later and/or lower spec model Nikons don't so not strictly a failing on Canon's part.

                I never owned a 650 but I did own it's big brother the higher spec 620 introduced a bit later and that didn't have mirror lock up so I think it is unlikely that the 650 had this feature.

                  My first EOS was the 650, bought in the early eighties when it first came out and I still have it but, sadly, the batteries are long dead and not rechargeable so I can't test it.

                  I also have an EOS 5 the handgrip of which is doing a good impersonation of fly paper.

                    I've got one too but I haven't checked it recently - I suspect mine will have gone the same way. I do know the ESO30 (not the 30D) I have has developed sticky grip syndrome...

                    Must check my old Nikons to see if they've done the same or whether it's just a Canon issue...

                      I've had success with cleaning the grip on my EOS30 (Film) with Anti Bacterial Handwipes!

                        I'll look into that...

                        Doesn't seem to affect all old Canons either - both old EOS 10 bodies seem OK as does my old EOS1000.
