Nikon digital SLR is Europe's camera of the year

Nikon says their digital SLR D3 has been chosen as Europe’s Camera of the Year 2008-2009 by the European Imaging and Sound Association.

The camera has already won the Camera Grand Prix 2008 award in Japan and the Technical Image Press Association‘s Best Professional Digital SLR Camera 2008 award in Europe.

Nikon is actually a late entrant to the market for professional digital SLRs, with the D3 being the company’s first full-frame model.
