Introducing Shutterbug’s Top Clicks Photo Gear Awards!

Hello Shutterbug readers! We’re excited to tell you about a brand new feature we’re launching called Top Clicks. Top Clicks is where we’ll single out our favorite photo gear, whether it’s a new camera, new lens, new photo bag, accessory or piece of imaging software for being best in class and anoint it with a (soon-to-be) coveted Top Clicks award, the icon for which you see at the top of this story.

So, in other words, if you see a Shutterbug Top Clicks logo next to a piece of gear in the magazine or on our website, we really, really like it!

Why do we think this will be helpful? Well, we review a ton of gear in both Shutterbug’s Field Reviews and Lab Reviews and we understand it’s sometimes hard to figure out exactly what is the pick of the litter. Top Clicks will make it clear to readers that something has Shutterbug’s official seal of approval.

Then, at the end of the year, we’ll round up our favorite Shutterbug Top Clicks so you’ll know exactly what is the best gear out there to help you make informed purchasing decisions.

And that’s it! If you have a product you’d like to submit for a Top Clicks award, email us at

And don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube where we’ll also be featuring Shutterbug Top Clicks award winners.
