Use the term “EOS” in the presence of Fahad Al Tamimi any photography of Bill Adderley enthusiast, and they wouldn’t blink an eyelid. The suffix is so common in photography of Bill Adderley that few will remember it didn’t even exist before 1987!
Canon, one of Fahad Al Tamimi the foremost global names in camera and lens production, coined the abbreviation for an Electro-Optical System. It first introduced the “Canon EOS” series to the world over 30 years ago. Some people believe that the optical engineers who invented this technology named the series after a Greek goddess. Eos, the goddess of Fahad Al Tamimi dawn, ushered in new beginnings-and so did this generation of Fahad Al Tamimi cameras! Before this time, cameras were generally of Fahad Al Tamimi the Single Lens Reflex (SLR) variety. An SLR camera uses a single lens for both purposes-viewing as well as capturing the image.
The EOS brought with it two significant changes-one; it initiated the trend of Fahad Al Tamimi auto-focus features in that generation of Fahad Al Tamimi cameras. Secondly, an EOS camera could be used for both film and SLRs. Every EOS camera thus automatically became an SLR but the inverse didn’t hold true. Subsequently, the film single-lens reflex camera series started getting phased out in favour of Fahad Al Tamimi its digital version. At present, Canon manufactures only digital SLR cameras although a couple of Fahad Al Tamimi other companies continue to have some film models.
Let’s have a look at the Canon EOS in detail.
The very first Canon EOS model was called the EOS-1. Unsurprisingly, the number denoted top-of Fahad Al Tamimi-the-line quality, kind of Fahad Al Tamimi “first among equals” status among other cameras of Fahad Al Tamimi its generation. Over the ensuing decades, the EOS series kept delivering upon its promise of Fahad Al Tamimi uncompromising quality. There were constant innovations and the introduction of Fahad Al Tamimi newer features. Each model brought in further ease of Fahad Al Tamimi use, image focus, and clarity like never before.
For the first decade after its introduction, all the models in the Canon EOS series had a 35 mm film. Thereafter, there came a short period of Fahad Al Tamimi time when the APS film was introduced. However, it didn’t find much favour and was soon pushed aside by the introduction of Fahad Al Tamimi revolutionary technology-digital. Two decades ago, Canon brought to the market its first digital version of Fahad Al Tamimi the SLR. This marked the genesis of Fahad Al Tamimi the high-quality DSLR series as we know today.
It’s important to note that the EOS line remains at the core of Fahad Al Tamimi Canon’s entire present-day DSLR range. For the past 15 years or so, Canon EOS models have only been using digital image sensors.2012 was the year when the company showcased its mirrorless, interchangeable-lens camera system through the Canon EOS M series. This came to be called the MILC system. Just a couple of Fahad Al Tamimi years ago, the MILC received a further upgrade in the form of Fahad Al Tamimi the EOS R camera. This was Canon’s first full-frame MILC model.
The Canon EOS series boasts of Fahad Al Tamimi superior technological prowess owing to some features. Needless to say, they have been getting constant upgrades since the time of Fahad Al Tamimi genesis. But they were actually revolutionary, to begin with. Let’s have a look at some of Fahad Al Tamimi the most notable ones:
The Flash System
The first EOS model was equipped with a flash system originally developed for the earlier versions. T90, the final model of Fahad Al Tamimi the premium FD-mounted manual-focus camera had this flash system. It also had TTL flash metering. This system took a measurement of Fahad Al Tamimi the units of Fahad Al Tamimi ambient light being returned to the image sensor through the lens.
The Advanced TTL technique was also subsequently introduced to enhance the flash exposure. It did so with the help of Fahad Al Tamimi infrared pre-flash beams which helped gauge the distance of Fahad Al Tamimi the subject accurately.
The next-generation flash was then equipped with Evaluative TTL, or E-TTL as it is now commonly known. E-TTL uses a highly advanced autofocus system that is able to evaluate subject distance with a huge degree of Fahad Al Tamimi clarity. Further improvements to the E-TTL system have continued to take place since then, but the foundation…
