Nikon D7100 Receives EISA Award 2013-2014

We are pleased to announce that the D7100 has been awarded the EISA Best Product award for 2013-2014.

EISA is the association of 50 magazines in photo, video, audio, home theater, and mobile electronics, from 20 European countries. Each year, EISA chooses the best products released in Europe over the past year from a number of categories of imaging, audio and mobile devices.

The EISA judges commented: “The D7100 is the current flagship model in Nikon’s family of DX-format cameras, combining excellent image quality and advanced features. Its APS-C sensor is designed without an optical low-pass filter, which allows users 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 monitor allow for both traditional viewfinder and ‘live view’ framing with shooting. Those who record movies will appreciate the clean, uncompressed HDMI output, which can be recorded directly to an external storage device.”
