The EISA (European Imaging and Sound Association) Awards 2015-16 (Photography)
It all started in 1982 when five European Editor-in-chiefs from five photo magazines got together to select 'The European Camera of the Year'. They could not have imagined then, that the European Imaging and Sound association would emerge in 1989, a stronger and formal force, following their initiative. Today, EISA is a singular association of nearly 50 special interest magazines from 22 European countries. While most awards around the Globe are usually presented in hindsight, The EISA awards are refreshingly current and deal with today's technology.
At this year's (2015-16) EISA awards, Canon Stole the honours in three categories. The EOS 5DS/DSR won the most coveted recognition as the top European Professional DSLR camera. The Canon 11-24mm f/4 L USM lens was declared the European Professional DSLR lens of 2015-16. The Canon EOS 7D Mark II was declared the European Prosumer DSLR camera of the year.
Sharing the limelight, not in an unequal measure was Sony. Their path breaking full frame A7 Mark II was named the European Professional Compact System Camera, while their new 90mm f/2.8 macro lens picked up the best European compact system lens award. The Sony Cyber shot DSC HX-90/V was the Editors' pick for European Travel Compact Camera 2015-16.
Sigma's 150-600mm f3/6.3 and the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM ART picked up the European DSLR Telephoto Zoom Lens 2015-16 and European DSLR Lens 2015-16 awards respectively.
Tamron was awarded the European DSLR Zoom Lens 2015-16 award for its 15mm-30mm f/2.8 DI VC USD Lens.
Panasonic Lumix ( DMC-G7/G-70) was awarded the European Photo and Video Camera 2015-16 while the European Consumer Compact Camera System award went to Fuji Film X-T10. The Olympus OM-D EM 5 Mark II was awarded the European Prosumer Compact System Camera award, while the Olympus M Zuiko Digital 30-150 f2.8 Pro Lens was awarded the European Professional Compact system Lens 2015-16.
The 24 Mp retro design Leica Q equipped with a 28mm f/1.7 fixed focal length lens and 3.7 M-dot EVF (Electronic View Finder) was awarded, deservedly, the European Premium Compact Camera 2015-16 award.
The DXO One was awarded the title 'European Photo Innovation 2015-16'. The DXO one uses revolutionary technology to improve image quality and detail when coupled with an i-phone. Equipped with 20Mp sensor and a f/1.8 lens, its Super RAW format integrates data from four exposures to capture optimum detail, tones, colour and contrast. When files are processed in DXO Connect software on a computer, the quality of mobile photography ascends to never before seen standards.
