The Prestigious EISA Photography Awards 2018-2019

EISA is the unique association of 53 special interest magazines from 25 countries. Internationally known for the European EISA Awards, EISA started in 1982 when the editors-in-chief from five European photo magazines came together to select “The Camera of the Year” for the first time.

This year, 17 products and one service have received EISA Photography Awards. Five of those products are mirrorless cameras, two are DSLRs, three are mirrorless lenses, four are DSLR lenses and there is one Superzoom camera, one speedlite and one smartphone.

Sony has obtained the most (four) votes from European photo editors. No surprise that the Fujifilm X-H1 and Panasonic LUMIX DC-GH5S are also award recipients. Olympus is absent this year. We expect next year to be very competitive with the introduction of Nikon’s and Canon’s full-frame mirrorless cameras.
