Olympus Scoop Two EISA Awards - Olympus has announced that two of its cameras scooped EISA Awards.
Olympus has announced that it won two EISA Awards this year.
The PEN E-P5 was awarded 'Best Advanced Compact System Camera', while the Tough TG-2 scooped 'Best Travel Camera'.
The PEN-F inspired E-P5 impressed the EISA jury with outstanding features that deliver the pro-standard imaging excellence of D-SLRs: "The camera's top shutter speed of 1/8000sec is one of the shortest for a compact system model, while the 5-axis image-stabilisation is unique in this category." The jury also praised the 100 to 25,600 ISO range, built-in WiFi as well as the creative shooting modes and art filters.
The shockproof, crushproof, freezeproof and waterproof Tough TG-2 won over the jurors with its super-bright 1:2.0 4x zoom lens, which delivers high quality in low light and spectacular depth-of-field effects. "The high-speed autofocus system makes this camera a solid choice for outdoor action photography," the jury added. "In Super Macro mode, the minimum focus distance is only 1 cm, while the camera's built-in GPS allows you to record exactly where a picture was taken and then place the locations on a map."
