Dubai, August 25, 2011
Canon, a leading Japanese consumer electronics brand, won three awards by the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) for its photo and video products.
The EOS 600D Digital SLR has been awarded European Camera 2011-2012, the Legria HF M41 camcorder has won European Camcorder 2011-2012 and the EF 70-300mm L-series telephoto zoom lens has been named European Professional Lens 2011-2012.
The EISA awards are voted by a panel of independent experts, comprising editors from more than 50 prominent magazines across 20 countries.
The awards recognise the products that combine advanced technology, features and design with genuine value, and the 2011-2012 judging panel has heralded these three Canon products as the best in their respective classes.
“Canon is committed to developing products that make it easy for people to capture their stories in the best possible quality” said Hendrik Verbrugghe, marketing director, Canon Middle East.
“These EISA awards are a powerful tribute to the products within both our photo and video groups, and also highlight the market-leading quality Canon offers to consumers and professionals alike.”
