As they say..."Why is this still a thing?" ;-)

I've seen the awards appearing for the last 20 or so years and they seem to be increasingly irrelevant. Well, perhaps not for camera marketing departments, who know that if you don't get something this year in a category, it will be your turn next year.

Back when I first started covering this stuff it was obviously still an opportunity for the camera press to have a drink together in some interesting part of the world ;-)


With the photo press a distinctly endangered species and the demise of 'expenses' it's become a lot more of a box ticking exercise. Almost all the big photography web sites are having difficulties from a business POV, with the decline in camera sales and ad revenue.

Presumably it will continue as a virtual get-together of 'influencers' and others able to shout about photography at a video camera...

So, until 2021...

*LOL* The Powershot as the best vlogging camera?

Camera Conspiracies would have an absolute field day with that one. Not even close to true

To be fair, the G7 X Mark III appears at the top or near the top of most "best vlogging camera" lists.

I think the real award should go to the people who have to come up with all the different categories every year. "Best DSLR Advanced Camera," "Best DSLR Expert Camera," "Best DSLR Professional Camera," "Best APS-C Camera Advanced... and on and on and on.

"You get a trophy. You get a trophy. And, you get a trophy."

Main purpose seems to be so that manufacturers can buy ads from TIPA members touting their "wins."

Why doomed?
If you haven't read it here yet: that's a running gag! ;)
Against all those SoNikOn disciples that say Canon is moving too slow, beeing not innovative, not building "THE ONE" imaging solution and will be overtaken by the competition.
Yet marketing and market share numbers tell the opposite - year by year. Have fun!

;)

It's just me or there TIPA awards are more and more frequent? Feels like there is an award session every few months. Or just time goes too fast, don't know.

The camera industry has been on a downward sales trend since the inception of quality phone cameras. The camera industry should collaborate with phone manufacturers.

A.M.: an integrated SIM card slot for the data up / down could be a good starting point arguably of course :)

Then all you need is a microphone...never mind the cameras already have those...and dialing software, and we have cell cameras. :D

(Oh, and a speaker for those few who actually listen on a phone instead of just talking. :LOL::ROFLMAO:)

I think all recent Canon cameras have a speaker already, for movie playback, or for the 1D people: voice memos.
