Nikon D4 and D800 Reign Supreme
Both our Nikon D4 and D800 have walked away with top honours at the European Imaging and Sound Association Awards this year. The EISA awards form part of the most prestigious photographic events on the calendar, judged by panels representing over 50 prominent photo/audio/electronics magazines across Europe.
European Professional Camera of the Year 2012-2013: the Nikon D4
The EISA judges said: The D4 delivers the highest image quality even in extremely difficult conditions. Tests performed by EISA magazines found the camera has an exceptional combination of high resolution, wide dynamic range, very low noise levels even at ISO 12800, super-fast autofocus, short response time and high frame rates that can be maintained for very long sequences. Almost perfect handling makes the D4 very easy and pleasant to use and we especially like the new joystick control that’s available whether the camera is in the horizontal or vertical position. The D4 also delivers very high video quality thanks to its uncompressed output.
European Camera of the Year 2012-2013: the Nikon D800
The EISA judges said: The D800’s 36-million-pixel full frame sensor offers exceptionally high resolution capture. No compromises have been made to the extent of the camera’s dynamic range or noise levels at high ISO settings. In a compact and reasonably priced, strong and sturdy body, it offers first-rate metering and a 51-point autofocus system developed from the professional D4.
