EOS-1D X Mark II and imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 honoured

EOS-1D X Mark II and imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 honoured

April 2016

Canon has been awarded five accolades by the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) – one of the world’s leading photo imaging and press associations.

Each year, the TIPA Awards recognise the best imaging products launched in the previous 12 months, and in 2016, Canon has been commended for technical innovations across its diverse product portfolio, from entry-level consumer compact cameras, through to professional DSLRs and photo printers.

The following awards have been granted:

  • Best DSLR Professional/High Res: EOS 5DS / EOS 5DS R
  • Best Photo/Video Professional Camera: EOS-1D X Mark II
  • Best Easy Compact Camera: IXUS 285 HS
  • Best Expert Compact Camera: PowerShot G5 X
  • Best Photo Printer: imagePROGRAF PRO-1000

“It’s an honour for Canon to receive such recognition from the TIPA Awards once again, and clearly demonstrates our commitment to creating high quality and industry leading products,” said Steve Marshall, Product Marketing Director, Consumer Imaging, Canon Europe. “This is a really exciting time to be part of the imaging industry and we’re proud to be raising the bar throughout the market, continuing to create products that encourage people to look at the world differently and have fun with photography. It’s great to see this recognised by TIPA, with honours across all our product ranges, from our consumer and enthusiast models, to our professional line.”

In honouring Canon’s award-winning products, the TIPA judging panel offered the following citations:

Best DSLR Professional: EOS 5DS / EOS 5DS R

The 50.6 Megapixel EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R bring new levels of image quality to DSLR users.

Rivalling the resolution of medium format digital cameras, the impressive 50.6MP full frame CMOS sensor of the Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R (with low pass cancellation filter) can deliver 5fps full resolution still images, and Full HD 1080p videos at 30 fps. They feature Dual “DIGIC 6” image processors and a newly developed Mirror Vibration Control System that utilises a miniature motor and cams rather than conventional springs, with a time-release lag setting to further suppress camera shake. The cameras have a 3.2-inch 1.04 million dot, approx. 100% coverage ClearView II LCD and a 150,000 pixel RGB-IR metering sensor. AF performance is enhanced with a 61-point high-density reticular AF sensor and Canon’s iTR that utilises information provided by the metering sensor.

Best Photo/Video Professional Camera: EOS-1D X Mark II

The recently launched EOS-1D X Mark II has opened up the world of 4K filmmaking to professional photographers and provided better focus and low-light performance as well as new standards in speed and workflow.

With a newly developed 20.2MP 35mm Full Frame Canon CMOS sensor, the EOS-1D X Mark II offers continuous shooting speeds of up to 14 frames per second and up to 16 fps in Live View mode. The Dual “DIGIC 6+” processors offer high-speed transfer for up to 170 RAW images and unlimited JPEGs per burst. The camera is also capable of shooting 4K 60p and Full HD 120p video with Dual Pixel CMOS AF. Using the optional wireless transmitter, the camera supports the new high-speed IEEE 802.11ac standard. Focusing speed and accuracy has been enhanced with an improved 61-point viewfinder AF and an improved AI Servo II+ predictive AF algorithm for better accuracy.

Best Easy Compact Camera: IXUS 285 HS

The highly pocketable IXUS 285 HS offers stunning performance in low light as well as WiFi and NFC connectivity.

Canon continues to offer pocketable yet full-featured compacts that offer many more options and higher photo quality than camera phones. The IXUS 285 HS sports a 3-inch LCD and a 12x optical zoom lens with built-in optical Image Stabilizer. Keeping connected is easy with a dedicated WiFi button and NFC. The 20.2MP CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4+ image processor deliver excellent quality even in low light. It captures 1080p Full HD video with the ability to create a “highlight reel” in camera.

Best Expert Compact Camera: PowerShot G5 X

Offering impressive build quality and DSLR-esque handling, the stunning PowerShot G5 X is built to perform with a 20.2MP sensor and a 24-100mm (35mm equivalent) lens.

The G5 X is a 20.2MP camera with a 1.0-type High Sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6 processor that can deliver nearly 6 fps still images and Full HD video. The integral 24-100mm lens (equivalent) has a maximum aperture of f/1.8 that drops to only f/2.8 at the telephoto setting, a 9-blade aperture and close focusing of approx. 2 inches. The camera’s EVF has 2.36 million dots and 100% coverage, with a refresh rate of up to 120 frames per second. A built-in eye sensor switches from the EVF to the touchscreen on the 3-inch Vari-angle LCD. The camera’s hot shoe is compatible with all Speedlite flashes in the EOS system.

Best Photo Printer: imagePROGRAF PRO-1000

The imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 printer offers gallery quality A2 prints and WiFi connectivity, bringing high-quality printing to the desktop.

Combining the ease of desktop use and a 17-inch wide cut sheet printer with many features from Canon’s higher-end pro printer models, the PRO-1000 uses 11-colour (plus Chroma Optimizer) LUCIA PRO inks. Inks are delivered via a FINE print head with a tubular ink delivery system that results in faster print speeds and enables stable high quality printing. There is a newly formulated Photo Black ink, both Photo and Matte black have their own channels so no ink swap is needed when changing papers. The vacuum paper feeding system keeps paper flat during printing, thus more accurate ink placement.

About TIPA

The Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) is comprised of 29 member photography and imaging magazines from 13 countries around the world. Taking into account innovation, ergonomics, design, ease-of-use, efficiency, price/performance ratio, as well as other guidelines, TIPA editors have been bestowing the TIPA Awards to imaging products since 1991 in order to help photo enthusiasts and professionals make the best purchasing choices. Additionally, TIPA activities include conducting surveys among the member magazines' readers, visiting companies and factories all over the world and staying in contact with research and developmental engineers in order to follow the evolution of imaging technology.
