I am the proud owner of a new Canon EOS 20D and love the baby. I search for the definition of the letter EOS by curiosity and cannot find it. Anybody can light my lantern....?

What does "EOS" mean?

Canon's line of autofocus-capable SLR cameras is sold under the name EOS. This stands for "electro-optical system" but is also meant to be a reference to Eos, a Greek goddess of the dawn. Some people pronounce it like the goddess (ee-oss) and others as separate letters (ee-oh-ess).
