Leading used camera and lens retailer, MPB, has announced the 2023 leg of its longstanding Photo and Video Kit Hall of Fame – where you can vote for your all-time favourite mirrorless camera, DSLR, lenses, drones, video equipment and more.

It’s the fourth annual Hall of Fame organised by MPB, which is now the world’s largest online platform for used kit.

Over the past three years, photographers from around the world have cast hundreds of thousands of votes. In addition, everyone who votes gets entered into a prize draw to win a used Sony A7 III from MPB, worth £1,200.

‘Our purpose is to open up the world of visual storytelling in a way that’s good for people and the planet,’ said MPB founder and CEO, Matt Barker. ‘It’s a unique opportunity for photographers and videographers around the world to make their mark in choosing which kit will go down in history.

We’re thrilled to be providing a Sony A7 III to a lucky voter, so I would encourage people to get voting now. I can’t wait to see which kit comes out on top!’
