FíRIN is a variation of Fírinne, the Old Irish word for “truth”, which was coined during the Gaelic Revival in the late 19th Century. It means, “that which is real”. It signifies “being true to someone or something”. And it represents a promise from Tokina to photographers to help them capture the truth in their images with this revolutionary new lens.
With FíRIN, photographers can shoot with confidence, knowing that every image captured with their mirrorless cameras will be its own moment of truth.

Close-up Photographer of the Year (CUPOTY) is a celebration of close-up, macro and micro photography – an annual competition created to showcase images that help us see the world anew.
But its scope is far greater than that.
Its ultimate aim is to encourage you to slow down, enjoy the craft of photography, and to make connections with others who are equally passionate about the world up close.
