Canon Epoca – A Review of A Twice Owned Camera – by Phil Harrison

I blame Kosmo Foto! His article on Ten of the quirkiest compact film cameras reminded me I had once owned a Canon Epoca is a fun camera to use and working well for its age with a pretty good zoom lens. It’s quite heavy and a bit unwieldy but for cheap fun it’s hard to beat., it prompted me to look for a working model and I was lucky enough to find one in good order, they are not expensive, for £20. I found some of my photographs taken with this camera in 1992/3, there’s even a photo of me with the Epoca in it’s case around my neck.
