FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima) is delighted to announce the host of awards it collected at the recent 2013 TIPA awards. Widely recognized as the most coveted photo and imaging awards worldwide, Fujifilm's FUJIFILM X-E1 compact system camera, FUJIFILM X20 premium compact camera and FUJINON XF14mmF2.8 R lens were all winners in their categories at the 2013 Technical Image Press Association awards (TIPA).

Fujifilm X series cameras have consistently triumphed at the TIPA awards over the last few years with the "FUJIFILM X100"'s success two years ago, and both the "FUJIFILM X-Pro1" and "FUJIFILM X-S1" winning awards last year.

1. TIPA Best Compact System Camera Expert Award — The "FUJIFILM X-E1" Premium interchangeable lens camera

The "FUJIFILM X-E1" is a premium interchangeable lens camera developed with thorough dedication to delivering premium image quality and superb handling. It has won the award in recognition of its analogue design, examples of which are the perfectly engraved number dials for shutter speed and exposure compensation control, and the exposure modes which are photographically oriented with a few rendition presets. The award also recognizes other features such as the sophisticated 16.3-megapixel APS-C "X-Trans CMOS Sensor" with the ability to record up to ISO6400 and the brilliant 2.36 million-dot OLED electronic viewfinder.

2. TIPA Best Expert Compact Camera Award — The "FUJIFILM X20" Premium compact camera

The "FUJIFILM X20" is a premium compact camera equipped with an optical zoom and a viewfinder in a desirably compact body. It offers excellent operability and image quality and has won the award in recognition of its newly-developed 12 million pixel 2/3-inch X-Trans CMOS II sensor, with the ability to record up to ISO 12800, achieving extremely high resolution and low noise. Recognition was also given to its FUJINON 4X zoom lens (28-112mm equivalent); a fast f/2 lens, it only loses one stop to f/2.8 at the maximum focal length, and is also capable of 1cm macro shooting. In addition, the X20 was highly rated for its fast and reliable Hybrid AF, its Focus Peak Highlight function on the 2.8-inch LCD screen, the manual barrel zoom, and manual focusing during video recording, plus numerous other features including the 8 "Advanced Filters".

3. TIPA Best Compact System Camera Prime Lens Award — The "FUJINON XF14mmF2.8 R" X Mount Interchangeable lens

The "FUJINON XF14mmF2.8 R" is a super-wide-angle lens with a focal length of 21mm (35mm equivalent); it's the pinnacle of Fujifilm's optical design technology with its top quality all-glass construction. It has won the award in recognition of the short back focus distance which helps eliminate vignetting and delivers a bright and high resolution image to corners. The award also recognizes the distance and depth of field scales on the barrel, aperture control in 1/3EV steps (19 in all), and minimum shooting distance of 0.18m(0.59ft).

Fujifilm will continue to work on the development of excellent products and services that address user needs, thereby contributing to the further development of photographic culture.

  • * TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) is one of the most powerful and influential photographic industry organizations in the world with membership from 28 photo and imaging magazines in 15 countries, across five continents. Every year, it reviews image-related products released in Europe and awards the best product in each category.
