EISA Awards – Best Cameras of the Year
EISA started in 1982 when the editors-in-chief from five European photo magazines came together to select “The Camera of the Year” for the first time. EISA is the unique association of 53 special interest magazines from 25 countries. Lets get right to their choices for Best Camera by class of 2018-2019!
