Photo-video accessory manufacturer, Vanguard have won two TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) awards.
The company was awarded the prestigious accolades for their BBH-200 Ball Head and Vanguard Heralder series.
The BBH-200 Ball Head was voted 'Best Accessory' and the Vanguard Heralder series took the 'Best Photo Bag' title.
Here's what the TIPA judges had to say about the award-winning products:
"The Vanguard Heralder Messenger Bag series combines quick and easy access to important gear with enough storage capability to include all that is needed for the working pro. Available in three sizes, the Heralder incorporates a 'quick top access' feature that puts essential gear right at hand as well as a handy built-in tripod sling, perfect for today’s video-driven photojournalist. The bag has been designed with a wide, padded anti-slip shoulder strap and a removable inner pouch, plus there is a removable laptop/tablet compartment."
"Trying to get your camera perfectly levelled when using a ball head has always been a challenge. Vanguard’s unique 'Rapid Level System' in their new BBH-200 Ball Head makes life easier for photographers - by just pushing the orange slider on the front of the tripod head the photographer can quickly lock the camera in place to be perfectly levelled with the base. The BBH-200 is a lightweight, yet sturdy ball head that can easily handle a professional DSLR with a long telephoto lens, making it an excellent companion for any tripod."
