TIPA Awards 2012

You can safely say I am a Canon girl through and through, I have only had Canon cameras and I am looking at getting another Canon next so I am a little bias when it comes to Canon products. But in saying that I do like to know what products regardless of brand are making waves in the photography industry. One good way to find out about current hot products is through the annual TIPA awards.

These awards are well known and respected in the photography industry, TIPA stands for Technical Image Press Association, they represents 29 photography and imaging magazines across nine European countries plus Australia, Canada, China, South Africa and the USA. The one award I found interesting was Best Mobile Imaging Device, which went to Samsung GALAXY Nexus – let’s face it who does not grab their mobile when they do not have their camera handy and I know for myself when picking out a new mobile the camera is something I factor in, actually I am holding off buying a new mobile, due to a new phone coming out with a great camera and social media capabilities.

On the 24th March, 2012 in Cape Town, South Africa the TIPA group held there meeting to vote on each category and they announced the winners on the 16th April 2012.

Canon was awarded six TIPA awards:

Best Professional DSLR Lens in 2012
The Canon EF8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM

Best DSLR Professional in 2012
Canon EOS-1D X

Best Video DSLR in 2012
