The Nikon D7100 has taken the title of 'European Camera of the Year' in the prestigious European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) awards.
The announcement adds to Nikon's awards success at this year's TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) awards, where the Nikon D7100 picked up the award for 'Best DSLR Advanced'.
Marina Gurevich, Product Manager, Consumer D-SLR, Nikon Europe, says: "We are very proud to receive this important award from EISA for our enthusiast-level DX format D7100. Since launching the camera in February this year, it has earned rave reviews – which we believe is down to its impressive resolution, professional-level 51-point autofocus system and a combination of powerful features in a durable body."
On the Nikon D7100, the EISA judges said: "The D7100 is the current flagship of Nikon's DX camera family, combining excellent image quality and advanced features. Its APS-C sensor is designed without an optical low-pass filter, which allows us to take full advantage of its 24.1-million-pixel resolution with no loss of sharpness. The fast 51-point AF system and high-speed continuous shooting are perfect for capturing action, while the reliable metering system delivers consistently accurate exposures.
The bright optical viewfinder and crisp LCD screen allow both traditional eye-level and 'live view' shooting modes. Movie shooters will appreciate the clean, uncompressed HDMI output, which can be recorded directly to an external storage device."
