Introduced in 1987, The Canon EOS (Electro-Optical System) autofocus 35 mm film and digital SLR camera system was the same products launched with Canon EOS 650 and is still in production as Canon’s current dSLR system. The acronym EOS was chosen for Eos, the Titan Goddess of dawn in Greek mythology, and is often pronounced as a word (i.e., EE-oss), although some spell out the letters. There is no officially correct pronunciation, as both seem logical.
It competes primarily with the Nikon F series and its successors, as well as autofocus SLR systems from Olympus Corporation, Pentax, Sony/Minolta, and Panasonic/Leica. In most countries, EOS cameras have the largest market share of SLR cameras.
