Sony is proud to announce that its quality and innovation has once again been recognised for yet another year at the highly celebrated Expert Imaging and Sound Association Awards 2023. Sony won a total of five awards including content creator camera for ZV-E1, multimedia smartphone for Xperia 1 V and advanced full-frame camera for Alpha 7R V.

Full list of Sony awards wins:

  • EISA ADVANCED FULL-FRAME CAMERA 2023-2024: Sony Alpha 7R V
  • EISA LENS OF THE YEAR 2023-2024: Sony FE 20-70mm F4 G
  • EISA STANDARD PRIME LENS 2023-2024: Sony FE 50mm F1.4 GM
  • EISA MULTIMEDIA SMARTPHONE 2023-2024: Sony Xperia 1 V


With the Alpha 7R V, Sony has married a high-resolution 61-million-pixel full-frame sensor with a sophisticated subject-recognition autofocus system powered by a dedicated AI processor. It can recognise and track focus on a broad range of subjects, including humans, animals, birds, insects, cars, trains, and airplanes. The Alpha 7R V is also capable of recording 8K video with a recording frame rate of 24fps or 4K at 60fps and includes in-body image stabilisation offering up to 8 stops of shake reduction. It has a large high-resolution electronic viewfinder and a versatile tilting and articulating touchscreen. It’s a stunning camera for photographers who want to capture high levels of detail.


This interchangeable-lens full-frame camera is deemed Sony’s content creation camera, made for creators who wish to record vlogs, livestreams, or video interviews. With its 12.1-million-pixel sensor and fast BIONZ XR™ processor, the ZV-E1 can record 4K video at 60fps in 10-bit 4:2:2 colour with full pixel readout, and minimal rolling shutter. After a free upgrade it can record in 4K/120p. Its autofocus is powered by a dedicated AI processing chip, similar to the Alpha 7R V. The 5-axis image stabilisation offers several modes. All this is contained in a light and compact body with a fully articulated touchscreen display, intuitive controls, and a large-capacity battery.

EISA LENS OF THE YEAR 2023/2024: Sony FE 20-70mm F4 G

Sony’s zoom lens is an excellent solution to a new problem. Shooting video requires a wider image angle to cover the same image height, because of the 16:9 aspect ratio. Therefore, the FE 20-70mm F4 G provides a wider focal length than most other standard zooms on the market. Sony has achieved this without compromising on optical performance: the FE 20-70mm F4 G provides excellent sharpness across the entire image. Low weight, weather-sealing and a fixed maximum aperture are other great practical benefits of this outstanding lens

EISA STANDARD PRIME LENS 2023-2024: Sony FE 50mm F1.4 GM

This G Master™ lens offers highest optical performance and a large F/1.4 aperture in a relatively light and compact format. The lens offers faster autofocus speed, greater sharpness, and smoother background blur (bokeh) thanks to an innovative optical design and high-precision manufacturing. The autofocus system offers precise and silent AF-tracking for both photo and video. Thanks to a weather-sealed construction and protective fluorine coating on the front element the lens can be used in challenging environments.


Of the Xperia 1 V’s many welcome features, it’s the high-quality camera system that truly stands out. Improvements for this fifth-generation flagship phone can be found in the sensor technology, which incorporates the new ‘Exmor T for mobile’, a stacked CMOS image sensor with 2-layer Transistor Pixel. The 1.7x increase in sensor size delivers dramatically reduced noise levels and a wider dynamic range, taking night shots to another level. Sony’s 24mm main camera is complemented by an ultrawide camera with 16mm focus length, and an optical zoom camera with an expansive 85-125mm range. The Xperia 1 V’s superb picture prowess and flexibility is backed up by its wide image 21:9 ratio, 4K resolution HDR OLED screen, and powerful 5000mAh battery with the latest Snapdragon® processor.
