Nikon Corporation (Michio Kariya, President) is pleased to announce that the Nikon D5000 digital SLR camera has been selected as recipient of the DIWA Gold Award. The Digital Imaging Websites Association (DIWA) is an international network of independent websites from Europe and the United States dedicated to comprehensive and neutral reviews of digital imaging products.
DIWA comments: "The Nikon D5000 knows how to stand out from most compact DSLR cameras thanks to its innovative image technology and users ease. The convenient vari-angle LCD monitor allows users to shoot from any angle, and Live View mode gives digital photography an extra dimension. The Nikon D5000 managed to convince the DIWA jury simply by its superior image quality, innovative functionality and user-friendliness."
DIWA was established in June 2003. It is an independent international organization presently consisting of eleven digital imaging product testing and review website members from all over Europe and the U.S.A. Digital imaging products are tested by DIWA members at DIWA Labs. Products are also tested according to more than 200 specified details, functions and features for evaluation and scoring. Those receiving the highest scores are selected as recipients of DIWA awards.
