Vanguard Quovio 41 & ABEO Pro 283CGH
Vanguard take their TIPA award total up to eight after receiving the Best Tripod 2013 and Best Photo Bag 2013 accolades for their ABEO Pro 283CGH tripod and Quovio 41 bag.

Commenting on the awards, Vanguard's Senior Marketing Manager, Christophe Regnault, said: "Up until now, a photo accessory manufacturer receiving 8 TIPA awards in half a decade was unheard of! This is more proof, if needed, of Vanguard's continuous commitment to the innovation of products."

This year's winning products get to follow in the footsteps of six other Vanguard products which have won TIPA awards since 2009:
  • "Best Accessory 2009" - Alta Pro tripod series
  • "Best Camera Bag 2010" -  Up-Rise bag series
  • "Best Camera Bag 2011" - Skyborne bag series
  • "Best Tripod 2011" - Auctus Plus 323CT
  • "Best Photo Bag 2012" -  Heralder bag series
  • "Best Accessory 2012" - BBH-200 ball head 
Here's what the TIPA judges had to say about Vanguard's latest award-winning products:

"The carbon fiber Vanguard ABEO Pro Kit, model 283CGH, includes the company's GH-300T "pistol" grip head with built-in remote shutter release control. The head features dual panning axes and features a 72-click-point panning base. The tripod's multi-angle centre column allows users to move the column from 0 to 180 degrees both vertical and horizontal, plus features an easily set and released locking system. The legs feature quick-flip locks and variable angle sets, from 25 to 80 degrees, plus the "3-in-1" all terrain feet allow for a firm stance with angled rubber, spike, and sand/snow "shoe" options.

Designed for the working pro and enthusiast, the Vanguard Quovio 41 shoulder bag is a well-padded carrier that features a Quick Access main opening to enable ready access to gear by pulling on its large handle. It can hold a semi-pro camcorder as well as a pro DSLR camera and kit, with configurable sections and a dual, built-in tripod holder. There are two mesh pouches for wires and accessories, plus a trolley attachment loop for moving through city streets and airports. The bag has a water-resistant base with "anti-shock feet," rain cover and incorporates a compartment for up to a 14-inch laptop."

About TIPA
The experienced editors from TIPA’s 27 photography and imaging magazine members use their expertise to test and review any and all new photo, video, and imaging products that have emerged throughout the previous year. Their General Assembly requires that all of its active members attend the annual meeting in order to vote on the awards. This year, the members met in Hong Kong to vote on awards from April 18-21. Then they independently vote basing their decision on the five key aspects of innovation, leading-edge technology, design and ergonomics, ease-of-use, and the product’s price to performance ratio.

TIPA has member magazines from nine European countries plus Australia, Canada, China, South Africa and the USA.
