What Is An EOS Camera?
EOS stands for Electro-Optical System and it was introduced in 1987 by Canon to unveil their line of autofocus SLR cameras with the new EF Mount lens range. Of course today, this name has stuck, and it now encompasses their DSLR lineup and their mirrorless cameras as well. The first EOS camera was the Canon EOS 650 35mm film camera, and this was followed in 2000 with Canon’s first DSLR, the Canon EOS D30. These days the EOS lineup has expanded to include the EOS-M Mirrorless system, the EOS R mirrorless full-frame cameras with the RF mount, and the Cinema EOS system for professional videography and cinema products.
