The medium format DSLR, launched in the UK in September 2010, won through its superb image quality, reliability and great operability. This is its third award.

EISA president Jorge Goncalves said “The 645D is a joy to use in the field, and although it is big and somewhat heavy, its ergonomic grip, large viewfinder, fast and accurate autofocus, and well-made controls make it perfectly usable without a tripod. With its 33x44mm, 40-million-pixel, Kodak CCD-sensor it is a landscape photographer’s dream, creating absolutely stunningly sharp and detailed pictures with very attractive colours and a huge dynamic range.”

EISA, (The European Imaging And Sound Association), comprises of 50 leading magazines. It awards outstanding products released in Europe in the previous year.
