Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce that four of its products the Nikon D4S, Df, and D3300 digital SLR cameras, and the Nikon 1 AW1 advanced camera with interchangeable lenses are recipients of the globally prestigious TIPA Awards 2014 for photographic and imaging products.

At four, Nikon received more awards for its digital cameras than did any other camera manufacturer. This is proof of just how well received the advanced technological capabilities, superior basic performance and convenient operation shared by Nikon digital cameras are. In addition, the innovation and superior functionality of the Nikon 1 AW1, the world's first (at the time it was released) waterproof, shockproof digital camera with interchangeable lenses, has also been recognized.

The best photographic and imaging products released over the past year in a number of categories were selected for the TIPA Awards 2014 through voting by editors of prestigious camera and imaging magazines from around the world.

Reasons the Nikon D4S was selected for the Best Digital SLR Professional Award The new EXPEED 4 image-processing engine, new Nikon FX-format CMOS sensor, and an effective pixel count of 16.2-million pixels enable capture of images that exhibit stunning sharpness, and enhanced depth. Recording of full-HD movies at a variety of frame rates is also possible. The D4S supports a broad range of standard sensitivities, from ISO 100 to 25600, as well as expansion up to the equivalent of ISO 409600.

A magnesium alloy was adopted for the elegant body, and the combination of FX-format CMOS sensor, EXPEED 3 image-processing engine, and an effective pixel count of 16.25-million pixels ensure superior image quality. What's more, the camera is also equipped with a 2016-pixel RGB sensor, a 39-point AF system, a high-speed continuous shooting function capable of approximately 5.5 fps, and an optical viewfinder utilizing a glass pentaprism. The Df supports a broad range of standard sensitivities, from ISO 100 to12800, with maximum expansion to the equivalent of ISO 204800.
