DPReview Names Favorite Imaging Gear of 2021
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, November 25, 2021 @ 08:00 AM (EST)

Photography website DPReview has announced its favorite imaging gear of the last 12 months. Perhaps unsurprisingly, its award for Best Product went to the new Nikon Z9. They cited its black-out free electronic viewfinder, 3D AF Tracking, continuous shooting at up to 20fps in RAW mode, and video capture at up to 8K/60p. Meanwhile, the Sony Alpha 1 was deemed Best High-End Camera, and the Sony a7 IV picked up awards for Best Consumer Camera as well as Best Consumer Stills/Video Camera.

Their award for Best Accessory went to Apple’s M1 and M1 Max laptops, the Best Drone accolade was clinched by the DJI Air 2S, and the Apple iPhone 13 Pro’s impressive images and videos earned it the award for Best Smartphone.
