MPB Announces 202O Photo And Video Kit HallL Of Fame Inductees

Nikon, Fujifilm, GoPro and Hasselblad Make Up Inaugural Class 

At the end of June 2020 I published an article about the The Photo and Video Kit Hall Of Fame sponsored by MPB.  Based on feedback from MPB we know a large number of our readers participated and cast their votes. Finally, the results are in. Is the camera you voted for on theist below?

MPB, the world’s largest resale platform for digital photography and filmmaking kit, today announced the five inductees to the Photo and Video Kit Hall of Fame inaugural Class of 2020. MPB established the Photo and Video Kit Hall of Fame to honor the best photo and video equipment of the digital era. 


  • Classic category: Nikon D700. 
  • Game Changer category: GoPro HERO
  • Road Tested category: Nikon D810
  • Trendsetter category: Fujifilm X100F
  • Iconic category: Hasselblad 500CM

The inductees were chosen by photographers, filmmakers and creatives from 157 countries who cast a total of 40,985 votes during the six-week voting period. Twenty-five nominees across the five categories appeared on the ballot, which was selected by the camera experts at MPB. 

“I’m thrilled by the response,” says Matt Barker, CEO and founder of MPB. “We launched the Photo and Video Kit Hall of Fame to give creative people around the world an exciting way to engage in their passion and a chance to help make photo history. The votes are testament to how much people love their camera gear.”

MPB will present awards to the manufacturers of the 2020 inductees, and the gear will be enshrined in displays later this year at MPB offices in Brighton, Brooklyn, and Berlin. The life and legacy of the 2020 inductees will be celebrated on the MPB website and on social media.  


  • Nikon D700. The Classic inductee is renowned for its incredible image quality, build quality and character.
  • GoPro HERO sports camera. The Game Changer inductee revolutionised point-of-view filming for sports and otherwise impossible-to-capture activities.
  • Nikon D810. A near-perfect all-rounder, the Road Tested inductee brought high resolution to a familiar package, with reliable ISO performance.
  • Fujifilm X100F. Beautiful and portable, the Trendsetter inductee is the retro camera everyone wishes they had in their kitbag right alongside their pro body.
  • Hasselblad 500CM. The Iconic inductee features an iconic shape from an iconic manufacturer and has helped create much of the world’s finest work.

Photography is my passion and has been for 50 plus years. My career in photography has allowed me to travel the world, meet some of the most interesting people on the planet and see things I could never have dreamed of. My goal is to share the passion of picture taking through photographs and teaching with as many people as I can, hoping it brings them as much joy and happiness as it has me. I do this through, this site, as well as Rockhopper Workshops, and other projects, as well as teaching as Artist In Residence at the Indianapolis Art Center.
