This Readers Award was established in 2008 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Camera Grand Prix. The recipient of this year’s award was selected with voting by general users between March 28 and April 10, 2011. With the selection of the Nikon D7000 this year, Nikon digital cameras have received the Readers Award three times in the past four years, proving just how highly regarded the cameras are by a large number of users.
The D7000 was also the recipient of the TIPA Awards 2011 Best D-SLR Advanced award.
