The cinema5D team thought long and hard about who to award our IBC 2017 awards to – and it wasn’t easy, the discussions went on for long. In the end, we agreed on three products that really show some innovation in their fields – the field of small cameras, camera support, and lighting.
Congratulations to the hard-working people behind these amazing products!

The Sony RX0 deserves one of our IBC 2017 Innovation Awards because it packs a rather large 1″ sensor into a tiny body with a 24mm equivalent field of view, an extremely sturdy and waterproof housing as well as professional features like Slog2, continuous RAW photo shooting, focus peaking or 4K output via HDMI. It’s going to make GoPro’s life even harder, but will branch out beyond the action cam / sports cam sphere. We predict that this camera will be used in all kinds of different applications very soon. It will cut beautifully with all kinds of other Sony cameras and also makes it possible to build quite small VR rigs with a bunch of RX0’s.
