Best Video DSLR for Canon EOS 5D Mark III and Best Professional Video Camera for Canon EOS C300 Digital Cinema Camera.


Digital imaging leader Canon received six new honors for its products, particularly its revolutionary Cinema EOS range, at the recently concluded 2012 Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) Awards.

Canon received six TIPA awards namely: Best DSLR Professional for Canon EOS-1D; Best Expert Compact Camera for Canon PowerShot G1 X; Best Professional DSLR Lens for Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L USM fisheye; Best Multi-function Photo Printer for Canon PIXMA MG8250; Best Video DSLR for Canon EOS 5D Mark III and finally, Best Professional Video Camera for Canon EOS C300 Digital Cinema Camera.

The citations for the product awardees noted the sophisticated technology of Canon cameras and printers including the “well-balanced package of image quality and shooting speed that can go as high as 14 frames per second” offered by Canon’s top-of-the-line professional DSLR, the EOS-1D X.

The TIPA judging panel also recognized the “superior image quality” afforded by the PowerShot G1 X, the PIXMA MG8250’s “photo lab-quality printing at impressive speed” and the role of the EOS 5D Mark III in furthering the digital photography revolution started by its predecessor, the EOS 5D Mark II. Finally, the judges also noted the “landmark video camera technology” implemented in the creation of the C300 Digital Cinema Camera.

TIPA is Europe’s leading photo imaging and press association composed of editors from leading photography titles worldwide. Widely considered as the most coveted international imaging honors, the TIPA Awards lauds best products launched in the preceding year.

Kieran Magee, Marketing Director for Professional Imaging of Canon Europe said, “It is a great accolade to have received six awards from TIPA. This past year has been exceptional for Canon, with a range of ground-breaking product launches, including the landmark EOS C300 and the much awaited EOS 5D Mark III.” He added, “The phenomenal reception from the TIPA judging panel highlights Canon’s commitment to imaging excellence and the impressive consumer and professional products we have developed.”
