Sony scoop three awards - Sony win three TIP Awards for the a200 DSLR and digital photo frames.
Sony digital imaging innovation have been recognised by the judges of this year’s TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) Awards.
The editorial panel of Europe’s most prestigious photo industry awards named the compact α200 Best Entry-level D-SLR in Europe. The judging citation states:
“Easy to use, easy to carry and offered at a very attractive price with its 18-70mm zoom lens, the Sony α200 is a dream camera for beginners who want to start enjoying all the benefits of D-SLR photography. Its 10.2Mp sensor delivers top quality images up to ISO 400 and beyond, and the autofocus system is fast and accurate. The large LCD screen gives a clear, bright display when reviewing images, and both the in-camera image stabilisation and the anti-dust system are very effective in use. A superb, low-cost camera that’s easy to use, and a worthy winner of this award.”
Meanwhile, the beautifully styled DPF-V900/V700 digital photo frame was awarded this year’s Best Photo Frame in Europe. The judging citation states:
“The Sony digital photo frames DPF-V900 (9-inch display) and DPF-V700 (7-inch display) offer WVGA resolution (800x480 pixels) along with 15:9 aspect-ratio screens. Sony’s BIONZ processor with face detection technology allows the rapid display of large files, and also provides image corrections like focus enhancement, red-eye reduction and exposure adjustment. Digital images can be loaded onto the internal memory from various types of memory cards or via the USB cable from a PC or camera. The DPF-V900 and DPF-V700 digital photo frames support JPEG, TIFF, BMP and Sony RAW image file formats, and functions can be managed remotely with the included controller.”
Sony has also won a third TIPA Award this year. The Sony Compact Picture Station won the title Best Photo Kiosk in Europe.
