FujiFilm X-Pro2 Wins TIPA Award
The winners of the Camera Grand Prix 2016, hosted by the Camera Journal Press Club of Japan (CJPC), received their awards in Tokyo on Wednesday, 1 June 2016. And, the X-Pro2 won an Editor award for Best Mirrorless Compact Camera Systems for Experts
The camera shows the company engineers’ strong belief in its classical appearance that incorporates an unusual Advanced Hybrid Multi Viewfinder and a new film simulation mode “ACROS” that lets the user recognise the pleasure of B&W photography. The concept of the highly evaluated predecessor, the X-Pro1 is deepened in the X-Pro2 to satisfy high-level consumers, with a high quality appearance and feel.
The Camera Grand Prix, held since 1984, is a prestigious award whose winners are selected by a judging committee made up of the members of the CJPC, top editorial staff of the member publications, academic experts, technical writers, professional photographers and TIPA. The CJPC has a collaborative agreement with TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) whereby they vote on each other’s awards. The Camera Grand Prix is held annually under the sponsorship of the CJPC, which was founded in Japan in 1963.
That’s quite a prestigious award; even if it’s designated by Fuji as Pro camera, but entered in the awards at an expert level.
