Av & Tv are AE Modes.

Av & Tv =
Aperture Priority Automatic Exposure Mode
Shutter Priority Automatic Exposure Mode
(Av = Nikon’s favored mode) & (Tv = Canon’s favored mode) of the 1970s.

They came before
Av + Tv + Program Mode (first together in Canon A-1)
then came a
Fully Automatic Exposure Mode
and then
Variable Program Exposure Modes
and then
Auto Focus
and then
Auto Focus that really worked (first in Minolta)
and then a
complete redesign of a camera/lens system to try to catch up (Canon EOS)
and then....

Digital....
CMOS....
Digital Video....

What will be next......?
