Trio of EISA awards for Canon

Canon has been given three awards by the European Imaging and Sounds Association (EISA). The EISA awards are voted by an expert panel, comprising editors from more than 50 prominent magazines across 20 countries. The awards recognise the products that combine the most advanced technology, features and design with genuine values.

European Camera 2010-2011: EOS 550D
The EISA judging panel said: “Canon’s EOS 550D makes an excellent entry-level camera, as it offers a wide range of features in a well-designed and easy to use body. Full HD video recording is available with full manual control of exposure and of focusing, as well as still image modes for photographers of all skill levels. The camera has the same 18-million-pixel resolution as the high-end EOS 7D and offers very similar image quality, but in a camera that is much more affordable. This is a well-specified camera packed with features that will help all types of photographer enjoy their hobby more.”

European Advanced SLR Camera 2010-2011:  EOS 7D
The EISA judging panel said: “Thanks to its new 19 cross-type AF points, its extremely high ISO settings and a burst mode that allows up to eight frames to be captured in one second, the Canon EOS 7D is the natural choice when it comes to photographing action and sport. The camera uses Canon’s powerful DIGIC 4 processor and an 18-million-pixel APS-C CMOS sensor, which combine to deliver high-quality still pictures and Full HD 1080p movie capture. Though moderately priced, the EOS 7D has a rugged magnesium alloy body shell, is environmentally sealed and offers a bright, 1x magnification, 100% viewfinder.”

European Family Camcorder 2010-2011:  LEGRIA HF M31
The EISA judging panel said: “The perfect family camcorder should be easy to operate by each and everyone; from adult to child. The tiny Canon LEGRIA HF M31 manages this perfectly thanks to its superb touch-screen and low button count. But don’t get the wrong impression: despite its compact size, this is a fully featured HD camcorder with high-speed autofocus and even a microphone connector. The optical image stabilizer adds to the unexpected high level of performance, as does the possibility to record on 32GB flash memory or an external SD-Card.”

AA:Where is Canon heading with the EOS R system?

MB: That's still to be defined, but the plan is to develop the system in both directions. With the EOS RP we've gone towards an entry-level full-frame camera, which is a very large market. It was a bit of curve ball because everyone seemed to have expected a high-end model.

When you have a high-end product it's got to be bullet-proof. It's got to work. That's the faith professionals have in Canon. It’s not going to let them down. And that's what has built the CPS [Canon Professional Services] reputation. It’s the same with a pro mirrorless camera – it's got to work. It can’t be a ‘work in…
