EOS, however, is simply Canonís name for a certain type of SLR camera. The name is said to come either from Eos, the goddess of the dawn from Greet mythology, or to stand for Electro-Optical System which represents the electronic data communication between the camera and lens.
Both actually from the Canon Camera Museum:

Canon also marketed an autofocus SLR, the "T80," however, the focusing performance of the "T80" fell far behind that of the "Minolta a-7000" and "Nikon F-501." Then, in March of 1985, Canon decided that "a highly-refined AF SLR model deserving Canon's name should be developed with the target market release date of March 1, 1987, the year of Canonís 50th anniversary."

The development project was called "EOS (Electro Optical System)." The "EOS" is also the name of the goddess of dawn in Greek mythology, even more apropos for the new-generation SLR camera.
