Sony Awarded Two EISA Awards - Sony has been awarded two EISAs this year, for European Advanced Camera and European Compact Camera.
Sony has been awarded two EISA (European Imaging and Sound Association) awards for its cameras this year.
The SLT-A99 scooped 'European Advanced Camera of the Year'. EISA Judges said: "Sony’s flagship camera, the Alpha SLT-A99, provides the demanding photographer with excellent image quality and a host of innovative features through its use of a full frame sensor and its SLT electronic viewfinder system. The camera’s Exmor CMOS sensor features 24.3 million pixels which, via the BIONZ image processor, can output 14-bit raw files at a rate of six frames per second, while the camera’s unique dual phase detection AF system is designed to keep up with fast moving subjects."
'European Compact Camera of the Year' was won by the DSC-HX50. EISA judges commented: "The HX50 is the world's smallest compact camera with a 30x zoom lens - stretching the limits of the compact zoom segment even more. Equipped with a Sony G-class lens, the DSC-HX50 offers a great balance of worry-free point-and-shoot photography and high-level manual control and customisation."
