The EISA, European Imaging and Sound Association, has announced the 2009-2010 awards.

The Nikon D3X was choosen as best European Professional Camera, while the Canon EOS 5D Mark II won the award for best European Advanced Camera.

The EISA writes about the Nikon D3X: “With its ultra-high 24.4 million-pixel resolution and full frame imaging sensor, the Nikon D3X is a dream for the professional photographer who mixes studio assignments with fast moving dynamic subjects outdoors. The D3X is capable of an image quality that previously could only be achieved with medium format cameras fitted with digital backs, but it has much faster autofocus, continuous shooting rates plus it can be used at sensitivities of up to ISO 6400 with astonishingly good results. With an enormous range of features the D3X is a top-class modern pro-camera that offers total control over the image, from the moment of composition in the large viewfinder to the output of a ready-to-use digital file.”

The EISA writes about the Canon EOS 5D Mark II: “The Canon EOS 5D Mark II is a worthy successor of the EOS 5D. The principle features remain the same: a full-frame sensor in a relatively compact body, but Canon has added extra professional features such as sealing against the ingress of dust and moisture and functions like Live View, sensor cleaning and a 1080p HD-movie mode. Despite the increased resolution of 21 million pixels, Canon has been able to reduce noise levels to below those of the 5D, which is a great achievement.”
