The EISA awards are voted for by panels of editors representing 50 prominent magazines from across 20 European countries. The awards celebrate products that combine the most advanced technology, covetable features and striking design with demonstrable and unmistakable value. This year the LEGRIA mini X and EOS 1200D have been judged the best in their respective classes against these criteria.

“As a business, we strive to present consumers with products that enable them to explore new creative possibilities, and this is certainly the case with both the EOS 1200D and the LEGRIA mini X,” said Steve Marshall, Product Marketing Director, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon Europe. “We’re extremely proud of this result, and it’s great that our ongoing effort to pioneer leading technologies has been recognised. Enabling our consumers to tell their stories in different ways is paramount to Canon – the recognition from the EISA judging panel is testament to the flexibility and quality of these two products, and a great sign that we’re achieving this underlying vision for the business.”

Commenting on the Canon EOS 1200D, the EISA panel said: “This compact, lightweight and easy‐to‐use entry‐level digital SLR is intended for both newcomers to photography and experienced users on a budget. Its 18‐megapixel, APS‐C CMOS sensor, in tandem with its DIGIC 4 processor, delivers high‐quality images with good dynamic range and low noise up to ISO 1,600 and beyond. A dedicated smartphone app, EOS Companion, helps new users get the best out of the camera, and with additional features such as a 460k‐dot LCD screen, 63‐zone dual‐layer metering sensor, in‐camera lens correction and a range of creative filters, the Canon EOS 1200D offers exceptional value for money.”

Commenting on the Canon LEGRIA mini X the EISA panel said: “The second generation of this small‐scale camera takes Canon's original innovative concept even further. The LEGRIA mini X is multi‐talented, with the rotating touchscreen display ideal for taking video 'selfies', the adjustable stand allowing the camcorder to be placed on any surface, and the ultra‐wide‐angle 170‐degree lens capturing all the action. Full HD video (25p or 50i) is delivered by Canon's F/2.8 lens and 1/2.3‐type, 12.8‐megapixel CMOS sensor in both MP4 and AVCHD codecs, together with uncompressed stereo LPCM audio from the internal microphone. Generous connectivity includes a 3.5mm jack for an external mic, headphone terminal, plus mini HDMI, mini USB and Wi‐Fi, allowing easy transfer of files. And with the latter, the LEGRIA mini X can be operated wirelessly from a smart device. Genuinely flexible, this is a perfect partner for your everyday adventures.”
