The Pro Moviemaker Gear of the Year Awards are heaven for gearheads!

 Now in its seventh year, the Gear of the Year Awards recognise innovation and excellence in products and the companies behind them – and winning one is a real honour. Unlike some awards, the victors are voted for by professional filmmakers – the people who use the kit every day. That’s what makes them so special. Brand-new or time-served workhorse equipment, we acknowledge only the very best.

As always, flagship categories are for cameras. Last year, we introduced best hybrid/crossover to replace the dwindling DSLR category which had seen no significant launches. New for 2023, we have added a PTZ class – a format that is growing in importance. We’ve seen new launches galore for all camera types.

As well as cameras, find classes for lenses, lights, audio and more – which are all experiencing continual improvement and technological advancement. We also honour service providers – rental houses and retailers of new and used equipment – the vital conduits between manufacturers and working professionals.

The editorial team and gear testers of Pro Moviemaker magazine have debated long and hard to compile these shortlists. But we don’t make the call on the winners, the real winners are all chosen by you, so please vote and have your say!

Ballots run until 22 September 2023, so you’ve got plenty of time to consider where to cast and everyone who votes will be entered into a prize draw. The first name pulled out at random will win a case of champagne!
