As the editor of sister publication Camera – which is a member of the global Technical Image Press Association – I have the privilege of participating in the judging of the annual TIPA Awards, which annually recognise excellence in the design of imaging products (you can read all about our deliberations in the news section). This year’s judging took place in San Francisco, so it was a golden (ahem) opportunity to fulfil a long-held desire to visit Yosemite National Park, about a three hour’s drive to the east. Yosemite is, of course, forever linked with Ansel Adams, who first visited the park in 1916 when he was just 14, armed with a Kodak No.1 Brownie. He subsequently made famous – with his signature red-filter-enhanced B&W contrast – many of the Valley’s…

tipa announces 2016 awards winners

This year’s TIPA Awards judging was conducted in San Francisco, with awards made in 40 categories including, for the first time, one for camera-equipped drones. TIPA’s Technical Committee regularly revises the Awards categories to reflect changes in the industry. Consequently, for 2016, the D-SLR categories have been adjusted to recognise the arrival of more ultra-high resolution models, as well as those with a more ‘hybrid’ design in terms of targeting both photographers and videographers. The Awards now also separate the enthusiast-level bodies with ‘APS-C’ and full-35mm sensors. Multiple award winners for 2016 included Sony, Fujifilm, Sigma, Canon, and Nikon. Sigma won three of the four categories for D-SLR lenses. while Fujifilm collected awards for its X-Pro2 (Best Mirrorless CSC Expert), X-T10 (Best Mirrorless CSC Entry-Level) and 100-400mm X Mount telezoom (Best…

hasselblad joins 100 mp club with next-gen h6d

The start of what the company says is a return to core values has begun with the launch of Hasselblad’s sixth-generation medium format D-SLR system. The H6D, says Hasselblad, retains “…iconic design elements and Swedish handmade quality”, no doubt an oblique reference to the now quietly-shelved (and largely unsuccessful) program of rebadging selected Sony cameras. However, unlike the last couple of H System camera upgrades, the H6D is pretty much an all-new design and offers a number of new features which will keep it competitive with Phase One’s XF platform. The H6D will be available with a new 100 megapixels capture back which uses the same Sony-made CMOS sensor as the XF 100MP (albeit optimised for Hasselblad), or a 50 MP model, again using a Sony-sourced imager. While mildly restyled on…

Leica has introduced a major firmware update for its SL (Typ 601) pro-level mirrorless camera.
