As the largest editorial and multimedia organisation in Europe, the EISA committee carefully assess and evaluate a vast variety of technology categories and are consequently renowned for recognising true quality and innovation.

European Premium Compact Camera 2016-2017: RX1R II

As one of the world’s smallest full-frame cameras, the RX1R II delivers the highest picture quality of any Sony compact camera ever made. This is made possible by the combination of the camera’s high resolution 42.4 MP full-frame sensor with its large aperture, fixed focal length ZEISS Sonnar T* 35mm F2 lens, which was optimised to work in combination with the sensor. It also features the world’s first variable optical low-pass filter[i] providing stunning image quality with a wide dynamic range and very low noise. The Fast Hybrid AF system with advanced phase-detection and contrast-detection guarantees razor-sharp images and with the powerful BIONZ X processor you will never miss a precious moment. The retractable XGA OLED Tru-Finder[ii] and a tiltable LCD screen offers great freedom to capture creative compositions. This premium compact camera is a true winner in every aspect.

European Photo & Video Camera 2016-2017:a7S II

he a7S II provides professionals with the right tool to create top quality video and excellent still images in every shooting situation. Its 12.2-million-pixel[iii] full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor masters high sensitivity shooting, with a maximum sensitivity of ISO 409600[iv]. In addition, its high dynamic range, 5-axis image stabilisation, and internal recording of 4K movies[v] in full-frame format with full pixel readout, ensure that the professional videographer won’t have to make any compromise regarding image quality. The camera’s Fast Intelligent AF excels in speed and accuracy and guarantees stunning images with excellent sharpness even in the dark.

European Prosumer Compact System Camera 2016-2017: a6300

The a6300 retains the compact lightweight design of its popular sister model, the a6000, but adds lightning fast (0.05 seconds) hybrid autofocus with 425 AF points and subject tracking 4D focus, professional-class 4K video shooting and a weather-sealed body. The new 24.2-million pixel[vi] Exmor CMOS sensor provides excellent image quality even in poorly lit situations, along with superb video quality, while the tilting 3-inch 921,000-dot LCD screen and the bright 2.36-million-dot OLED viewfinder are able to keep track of fast moving subjects at up to 11 frames per second.

European Professional Compact System Lens 2016-2017: SEL85F14GM

The SEL85F14GM telephoto prime lens is a true asset to any ambitious portrait photographer. The optical design and the use of advanced lens elements ensure that the lens delivers the extremely high resolution demanded by modern cameras. The circular aperture with 11 blades provides a smooth and appealing background blur, while Sony’s original Nano AR Coating reduces flare and ghosting with backlit subjects. The ring drive SSM motor system with two position sensors supports fast and accurate autofocus. As is to be expected from a professional lens, the FE 85mm F1.4 GM is dust and moisture resistant.
