At the EISA awards, the judges were impressed by the D7000’s range of high-end features, including high-speed autofocus, a bright 3-inch LCD, dust control, dual SDXC card slots and Full HD Video, commenting, “This is a camera that can give amateur photographers professional-looking images” and that it had “An exceptionally good noise-control system”.
The EISA Awards recognise those products that will be appreciated by an enthusiast and professional audience who want high quality and creative features. The awards were chosen by panels representing over 50 prominent photo, video, audio, home theatre and mobile electronics magazines from around 20 European countries.
Jordi Brinkman, Product Manager for Nikon Europe, says: “That a mid-range D-SLR has won the Advanced category is testament to the fact that we’ve put more high-performance features into the D7000 than you might expect, considering its price point. From its new 16.2 megapixel CMOS image sensor, AF system and metering sensor, to the much more compact, magnesium alloy body, we have had very positive feedback on the features and the massive benefits in ease-of-use and creativity that these bring to the photographer.”
Pro photographer, Nikon user and recent blog contributor Richard Peters recently posted his review of our D7000. Testing it in a range of conditions, he captured some really great shots with it. You can check out his photos along with the full review of the camera on his blog.
Aside from the great reviews and excitement of winning industry awards for our cameras, we’re always keen to know your own experiences and feedback on our cameras. Do you own a D7000? Do you think it’s worthy of an award? Let us know!
