Canon EOS 5D Mark III and PIXMA PRO-1 win awards
The Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR has been awarded the ‘European Advanced SLR Camera 2012-2013’. The EISA awards are voted by panels of editors representing 50 prominent magazines across 18 countries.
Commenting on the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the EISA judging panel said: “The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is an extremely versatile still camera as well as being an easy-to-use, professional quality, DSLR movie camera. While the specification seems similar to its predecessor, the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a substantial improvement in real life photography as well as in performance. Its 22-million-pixel CMOS sensor yields great results under normal and low light conditions, and the camera gets its advanced 61-point AF system from Canon’s new professional models. Additionally, this new EOS 5D generation has significantly improved weather resistance and 6fps continuous shooting speeds.”
The PIXMA PRO-1 was also recognised at the awards and picked up the award for the ‘European Photo Printer 2012-2013’. This printer is the world’s first A3+ printer to feature a 12-ink system and has become the new flagship model within the company’s acclaimed Pro series. Designed for professional photographers, the PIXMA PRO-1 features an EOS-inspired design and produces the highest-possible print quality, both in colour and in monochrome, making it ideal for use in studios and commercial exhibitions. Commenting on the Canon PIXMA PRO-1, the EISA judging panel said: “With 12 high-capacity pigment-ink cartridges the PIXMA PRO-1 is the perfect choice for making long-lasting prints of outstanding quality. This is a printer aimed at serious amateurs as well as professional photographers. Not only is the colour rendering excellent and consistent, but also, with five dedicated monochrome inks, black-and-white prints are highly detailed and really stand out. In colour, skin tones appear natural and are reproduced with a high level of accuracy. The printer supports media of up to A3+ and works quickly, taking less than three minutes to print an A3 photograph, and a second paper feeder adds extra flexibility for those using extra thick media. The PIXMA PRO-1 is full of modern technology that delivers excellent quality with relatively low running costs.”
