Nikon announce that its D800 digital-SLR camera is the recipient of the Camera GP2012 Camera of the Year and Readers Awards.
The Camera GP2012 Camera of the Year award is presented to the best still camera released on the Japanese market between April 1, 2011 and March 31, 2012.
This is the seventh time a Nikon camera has received a Camera Grand Prix “Camera of the Year award”, the last being the Nikon D3, which won the award in 2008.
The recipient of this year’s Readers Awards was selected through online voting by general users between March 20 and April 10, 2012. With the selection of the Nikon D800 this year, Nikon digital cameras have received the Readers Awards four times in the past five years, proving just how highly regarded the cameras are by a large number of users.
Since its release in March of this year, the D800 has been extremely well received. It was also the recipient of the TIPA Awards 2012 Best D-SLR Expert Award.
