Madrid, Spain—The Technical Image Press Association(TIPA) announced the winners of the 2020 TIPA World Awards. Along with cameras and lenses, from entry level to professional, the 40 category winners represent a wide range of imaging products and services. Moreover, the categories include imaging accessories such as inkjet papers, software, storage media, stabilizers, lighting and monitors.

“Given the extraordinary circumstances the world and our industry face today, we felt we should continue with our efforts in recognizing the best imaging products of 2020,” commented Thomas Gerwers, chairman of TIPA.

“We believe that now more than ever, our support of the industry as well as the people who work so hard, be it in production, distribution or marketing, deserve credit and our thanks and appreciation for their efforts to continue to develop new and exciting products and grow into the future. Of course, while the process of nomination and selection of award winners adapted to the circumstances, we maintained our usual rigorous standards in our considerations.”

2020 TIPA World Awards Process

Beginning in late 2019 and through March 2020, nominations within select categories were gathered by the TIPA Technical Committee. Editors from member magazines were consulted; equipment was tested and evaluated; and new categories, representing emerging imaging trends, were also considered.

Finalists are usually voted on at the TIPA general assembly by representatives from TIPA member magazines from around the world. The assembly was originally scheduled for mid-March in Las Vegas. However, when travel restrictions were established, the TIPA board implemented product recommendations and an online voting procedure for members globally.

2020 TIPA World Awards Winners

The full list of the 2020 TIPA World Award winners follows, along with what the committee had to say about each winner.

BEST PHOTO INNOVATION: Sony Real-Time Tracking Technology 2020 tipa world Sony-Real-Time-Tracking-technology

Sony’s Real-Time Tracking technology changes the game when it comes to autofocus speed and accuracy. Once a photographer indicates the subject with half pressure on the shutter release, the system tracks it regardless of where it moves within the frame. Moreover, Real-Time Eye AF for humans and animals enables the camera to automatically pick up the subject’s eye in the frame. It uses artificial intelligence and learned subject information, including color, brightness, distance as well as facial and eye patterns to maintain focus. This allows seamless and true AF lock-on without the need to change AF modes. sony.com
