MPB ‘Hall of Fame’ Winners 2022

  • Fujifilm X-T2: Its all-metal body is adorned with intuitive controls that can help any photographer make the most of any scene or subject. This camera looks, feels and acts like an instant Classic.
  • DJI Mavic 3: Capture stunning imagery with a legendary Hasselblad camera and enjoy smooth flight with omnidirectional obstacle sensing. Every improvement on Mavic 3 sets a higher standard for aerial photography.
  • Fujifilm X100: Kicking off the X100 series a decade ago, the original Fujifilm X100 married the look of visually-pleasing analogue SLRs to the nascent mirrorless technology of its time. And what a result. Still adored by street photographers today, this carry-anywhere camera is a joy to handle and use.
  • Nikon Z7: Alongside the Z6, the Z7 was Nikon’s first-ever full-frame mirrorless camera. And what a debut. This camera is responsible for countless Nikon DSLR users making the move to mirrorless.
  • Leica Q2: Safe within its weather-sealed body, the full-frame sensor flourishes with the fixed 28mm f/1.7 Summilux lens and super-fast autofocus. When you’re seeking to capture candid moments or fleeting encounters, time is of the essence—and this camera fights for every millisecond for you. The deluxe future of street photography.
