    Question Curious: Av & Tv?

    How did Av and Tv come to be annotations for Aperture-priority and Shutter-priority modes respectively?

    Av - Aperature Value
    Tv - Time value (which is essentially shutter speed anyway...)

    Also, those abbreviations are pretty much a Canon-ism. Other manufacturers use different symbols.
