The 2021 Kit Hall of Fame
Last year, tens of thousands of people voted to induct the Hasselblad 501C (Iconic), Canon EOS 5D Mark III (Classic), Sony A7 III (Trendsetter), DJI Mavic 2 Pro (Game Changer) and Nikon D850 (Road Tested) to the Photo and Video Kit Hall of Fame 2021.
You can vote for your favourite in five different categories of the Kit Hall of Fame 2022
Matt Barker, CEO and founder of MPB, explained, ‘Here at MPB, we have the privilege to hold so many impressive models of kit in our hands every week. From our experience, we know that all of the 25 nominees truly deserve their place in the Photo and Video Kit Hall of Fame. But it’s up to the public to decide which five will make history this year. Visual storytellers, photographers, filmmakers and content creators—a huge number of people around the world are passionate about kit, and this vote is a fantastic opportunity for everyone to join in and help celebrate the very best of the best.’
Member of the nominating committee, Angela Nicholson, founder of SheClicks and co-founder of Camera Jabber, commented, ‘MPB’s Hall of Fame recognises the gear that photographers and videographers love to use, the kit that has changed what we can do and how we work, day in, day out. I’ve voted each year since the Hall of Fame’s inception in 2020, so I was excited and honoured to be invited to join the nominating committee. My head was quickly filled with lists of great cameras, past and present. There’s a fabulous nomination list this year and it’s not going to be easy to cast my vote in each category, but there are also a few favourites that I will be backing.’
