Canon EOS 5D Mark II Wins Camera of the Year in Japan

The Canon EOS 5D Mark II digital SLR camera has been named “Camera of the Year” in the Camera Grand Prix 2009 in Japan.

The Camera Grand Prix is billed as the most prestigious award in Japan’s photo industry. It is under the auspices of the Camera Journal Press Club Japan (CJPC) composed of 13photography and camera publications.

The 2009 Camera of the Year award marks the eighth time that a Canon camera has earned top honors at the Camera Grand Prix, and the first since the top prize went to the EOS-1Ds, the industry’s first professional-model digital SLR camera to feature a 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor.

The EOS 5D Mark II was recognized for its range of high-performance features, including a newly developed full-frame 21.1-megapixel CMOS sensor, the next-generation DIGIC 4 image processor and a sophisticated Live View function, along with its advanced image quality and ease of use.

Earlier, the 5D Mark II got the accolade as the “Best Digital SLR, Expert Category in 2009” in Europe by the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA), representing 29 photography and imaging magazines across 13 European countries.
