Our favorite gear, rewarded: DPReview Awards 2021

It’s that time of year again, and with the holidays just around the corner, we’ve collated our annual list of what (in our opinion) constitutes the best of the year’s major product releases. If 2020 was the year of Covid lockdowns, working from home, and dreams of travel, 2021 has been a dreary slog of almost-but-not-quite-normality. Meanwhile, supply-chain issues across the world continue to impact virtually every industry, in every country – consumer electronics being no exception.

Partly as a consequence of all this disruption, 2021 was a relatively quiet year for new cameras, but plenty of new lenses were released, alongside plenty of drones and accessories. Meanwhile, smartphones continued getting smarter, and video features kept getting better and better.

So join now, us as we look back over the year’s releases and pick our favorites in various different categories, from high-end cameras to camera drones. As always, if you disagree with our picks (or you just want to say hi) leave a comment.
