For the 29th consecutive year, Canon has won a slew of IF Design Awards – one of the world's most prestigious awards within the field of design.
However, Fujifilm managed to rack up a couple more. Like Canon it took home more awards in other areas of industry (24 in total), but scooped up 9 for its camera equipment including the Fujifilm X-T5 and Fujifilm X-H2S.
The IF Design Awards was established in 1953 to bring international recognition to the best in industrial design, covering everything from AR glasses to air conditioners, typefaces to tea leaves, and washing machines to wristwatches.
Other manufacturers picked up awards for camera kit, too. Nikon snagged four, including one for the Nikon Z30, while Sony and Panasonic picked up one apiece for the Sony FR7 and Panasonic Lumix S5 IIX.
Given the stiff competition among imaging specialists alone, let alone the whole world of industrial design, it's amazing that Canon and Fujifilm did so well. But for Canon to take home awards for almost three decades in a row is simply remarkable.
