Nikon’s D3S professional FX-format D-SLR has won a top award from EISA (European Imaging and Sound Association), claiming the Best European Professional Camera prize. Nikon also came top in the Best European Professional Lens category, which was won by the AF-S NIKKOR 300mm F2.8G ED VR II super-telephoto lens.
Robert Cristina, Manager of Professional Products at Nikon Europe comments: “We are delighted that once again a D3 series camera has won the Best European Professional Camera category at the prestigious EISA awards. Based on feedback from our customers, we have built on the success of the D3X, which won the award last year, adding features to the D3S such as HD-quality D-Movie function and a newly designed FX-format CMOS image sensor.”
Cristina continued: “The AF-S NIKKOR 300mm F2.8G ED VR II follows the ground-breaking AF-S VR NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8G IF-ED. With a new generation of Vibration Reduction technology (VR II) and a new A/M focus mode, it’s an evolution of the NIKKOR lens that we’re really proud of, and demonstrates Nikon’s commitment to designing products that will keep photographers ahead of the game.”
Nikon’s success at the EISA awards follows the recent triumph of the D3S at the TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) awards earlier this year, where it won Best Professional D-SLR, further demonstrating Nikon’s dominance in high-end photography.
