The EISA Photo Panel described the EOS 5D Mark II as a "worthy successor of the EOS 5D," praising Canon's achievement in increasing the pixel count of the model's 35mm CMOS sensor to 21.1 megapixels while delivering lower noise levels than its predecessor. The jury also lauded the model's dust and moisture protection, Live View shooting, sensor cleaning, and full High Definition recording capabilities. The European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA), composed of 50 special interests magazines from 19 countries focusing on photography, A/V products, home theaters, and mobile devices, has recognized two other Canon products with prestigious "Best Product" awards: the Canon EOS 500D (EOS Rebel T1i in other regions) as European SLR Camera 2009-2010; and the Canon Pixma Pro9000 Mark II as European Photo Printer 2009-2010. EISA awards are presented to products released in Europe within the past 12 months and deemed representative of their product category by a judging panel composed of editors of EISA-affiliated magazines specializing in that respective product division. In addition to the European Advanced Camera Award, the EOS 5D Mark II has also been declared Best Digital SLR Expert Camera 2009 by the European Technical Image Press Association and Grand Prix Camera of the Year at the Camera Grand Prix 2009 in Japan, receiving a total of three authoritative awards in the camera industry.
