    Nikon D4 And D800 Win Honours At The EISA Awards

    Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 15 August 2012- Nikon has won two accolades at this year’s EISA awards, taking the prize for ‘European Professional Camera of the year 2012-2013’ for the FX-format full-frame Nikon D4, and ‘European Camera of the year 2012-2013’ for the 36.3 megapixel FX-format Nikon D800.

    The announcement adds to Nikon’s awards success at this year’s TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) awards, where the Nikon D800 picked up a ‘Best D-SLR Expert’ award, and similar plaudits were given to the Nikon 1 system camera and the Nikon D5100.

    Dirk Jasper, Product Manager for Nikon Europe, says: “We are really proud to receive these two EISA awards for our flagship D-SLRs. Both the Nikon D4 and D800 offer unparalleled image quality and excellent performance in even the most extreme shooting situations, and feedback from professional photographers and videographers has been incredibly positive.”

    Each year, the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) nominates the best equipment from different categories of audiovisual products released in Europe during the preceding 12 months. It recognises those products that will be appreciated by an enthusiast and professional audience who want high quality and creative features. The awards are chosen by panels representing over 50 prominent photo, video, audio, home theatre and mobile electronics magazines from up to 20 European countries.

    The EISA judges said: “The best professional camera of the year is Nikon’s full frame 16-million-pixel D4, for its ability to deliver the highest image quality even in extremely difficult conditions. Tests performed by EISA magazines found the camera has an exceptional combination of high resolution, wide dynamic range, very low noise levels even at ISO 12800, super-fast autofocus, short response time and high frame rates that can be maintained for very long sequences. The body is rugged and well protected against dust and moisture. The viewfinder delivers a sharp, comfortable and very precise view of what will be recorded. Almost perfect handling makes the D4 very easy and pleasant to use and we especially like the new joystick control that’s available whether the camera is in the horizontal or vertical position. The D4 also delivers very high video quality thanks to its uncompressed output.”

    The EISA judges said: “This year’s best camera is the Nikon D800. Its 36-million-pixel full frame sensor offers exceptionally high resolution capture and, according to EISA magazine tests, no compromises have been made to the extent of the camera’s dynamic range or noise levels at high ISO settings. In a compact and reasonably priced, strong and sturdy body, it offers first-rate metering and a 51-point autofocus system developed from the professional D4. The camera has a clear and bright 100% viewfinder that is very precise and comfortable to use even for glasses wearers. The tiny flash can command additional Nikon flash units and delivers just the right amount of fill-in illumination even in complex lighting conditions. The D800E version delivers even higher resolution images without needing any post processing sharpening: the image quality comes close to that of a medium format camera, but with the benefits and versatility of a lightweight 35mm reflex camera.”

    Not listed in the list. There are other categories which other branding won something eg Samsung and Olympus. But I can't find the press release from their official website nor the European website. Stay tune. I ll update accordingly.
