TIPA Awards 2014 Winners


Congratulations on winning the TIPA Awards 2014!



TIPA (Techinical Image Press Association) Awards are recognized as the most coveted photo and imaging awards worldwide.

TIPA is the largest family of independent European photo and imaging magazines made up of the most expert editors. Every year, TIPA editors vote for the best photo & imaging products introduced to the market during the previous 12 months. Innovation, the use of leading-edge technology, design and ergonomics, ease-of-use, as well as price/performance ratio is taken into account when choosing the award winners.

The TIPA Awards are bestowed through a majority of votes by very experienced editors. All products and their advertising media bearing the TIPA logo indicate that they have passed evaluations by TIPA’s technical committee and editors. That is why they are so prestigious!

We are so excited that among this year's winners are some from brands that we proudly distribute in Singapore, namely:


Best Tripod - Manfrotto new 190 Collection

Manfrotto's new 190 collection tripods appeal to advanced hobbyist photographers. It is available in two different configurations, either aluminium or carbon fibre.

It features the new Quick Power Lock lever, which allows release of all locks on each leg with one hand and a single movement. A new 90-degree centre column mechanism and flat top disc for the centre column significantly reduces the overall length of the closed tripod, plus allows easy setup of horizontal position for the centre column for macro. An Easy Link attachment in the top casting allows for attachment of accessories to the tripod, such as an LED light or reflector, which adds to the versatility and shooting opportunities.


Best Medium Format Camera - Phase One IQ250


The Phase One IQ250 is a CMOS-based, 50 Mega Pixel Digital Camera Back with 14-stop dynamic range. ISO range is from 100 to 6400, and exposure times have been expanded to a range of 1/10,000 second to 1 hour.

Live View on the back allows for focus and compositional control, either directly on the back, connected via USB3 to a computer (running the companion Capture One software) or displayed wirelessly to an iPad or iPhone with the Capture Pilot A pp installed. The back supports flash sync speeds up to 1/1600 second, allowing for creative latitude especially when balancing ambient and flash in the studio and on location.
