Nikon is proud to announce that the two of its digital-SLR cameras, the Nikon D300S and D5000 have been awarded the awards at the 5th Annual CNET Asia Readers’ Choice 2009/10 Awards on 25 March 2010.
The annual CNET Asia Readers' Choice Awards is an event that spotlights the most desired tech products favored by CNET Asia readers.
In December 2009, CNET Asia asked readers to nominate their favorite gadgets across 19 categories. A set of 153 products within the 19 categories were selected by CNET Asia editors based on overall reader popularity and feedback, performance via CNET Asia lab tests, as well as value and impact. To reflect the innovative spirit, a new category was also created for Best Innovative Product. Other new categories included Best Touchscreen Smartphone, Best LED-lit LCD TV, Best Micro Four Thirds Camera, and Best Netbook.
Registered CNET Asia members then cast their votes online over a 10-week period for the most-desired tech gear. To ensure readers had knowledge of the gadgets they selected, they could vote in categories of their choice. Over 43,000 votes were cast in that time and three products from each category with the most number of votes were then awarded the CNET Asia Readers’ Choice Awards in Gold, Silver and Bronze.
The awarded Nikon cameras are:
d300s - silver
- Best Midrange dSLR
d5000 - silver
- Best Entry-Level/Micro Four Thirds dSLR
