The EISA Awards 2017-2018 has announced the winners of the year’s best technology and products throughout the electronics industry, and Sony has dominated the Photography category in the latest awards.

The European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) is the world’s largest independent collaboration of experts in multimedia technologies and prides itself on its “unique, global viewpoint of the consumer electronics market.” If you’re in the market for a new camera or piece of home tech, then EISA is a handy place to check out to be pointed in the right direction.

The EISA Awards have been celebrating consumer electronics and recognizing innovation and performance for 35 years, since 1982. But this year, scooping up a whopping 7 of 19 possible awards in the photo category, Sony has emerged as a major winner.
