NIKON D5500 WINS EUROPEAN CONSUMER D-SLR CAMERA 2015 – 2016
Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 17th August 2015: Nikon has won a prestigious accolade in this year’s EISA awards, taking the prize for ‘European Consumer D-SLR Camera 2015-2016’ for its Nikon D5500.
The announcement adds to Nikon’s awards success at this year’s TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) awards, where Nikon won three accolades including ‘Best Entry Level DSLR’ also for the Nikon D5500 and ‘Best Professional D-SLR’ for the Nikon D810.
Jordi Brinkman, Product Manager, Nikon Europe, says: “The Nikon D5500 was built to help individuals unleash their creative potential and develop their photography skills further. Budding photographers have praised the ergonomic design and responsive touch panel, as they feel comfortable using the camera from the offset. We’re delighted that the camera has been so well received and won these awards from EISA and TIPA.”
Each year, EISA nominates the best equipment from different categories of audiovisual products released in Europe during the preceding 12 months. It recognises those products that will be appreciated by an enthusiast and professional audience who want high quality and creative features. The awards are chosen by panels representing over 50 prominent photo, video, audio, home theatre and mobile electronics magazines from up to 22 European countries.www.eisa.eu
The EISA judges said: “The Nikon D5500 is a compact, lightweight, but very capable D-SLR with an easy‐to‐handle body. Its 24‐megapixel sensor offers class‐leading image quality, with excellent resolution due to the lack of an optical low‐pass filter, and huge dynamic range especially at low ISO settings. Its 39‐point autofocus system surpasses the competition, particularly when tracking moving subjects. The ergonomic body design provides an unusually comfortable grip for such a small camera, and the fully‐articulating touchscreen swivels and can be used for self‐portraits. With extensive manual controls and built‐in Wi‐Fi, the Nikon D5500 includes everything enthusiast photographers need to make and share superb images.”
