What is the difference between an EOS and SLR camera?
EOS stands for Electro-Optical System and is a series of single-lens reflex (SLR) cameras with an autofocus option introduced by Canon in the 1980s. SLRs are cameras which reflects the light coming in through the lens up to a prism, and into a viewfinder. As opposed to mirrorless cameras, in which light comes through the lens and right onto the image sensor. Nevertheless, here’s a list to help you find that Canon camera that suits you.
