Panasonic will announce a new GH4 camera on February 7th - maybe this will be the 4k prototype they had on display during CES.

Pentax

HD-Pentax-DA-1.4x-AW-AF-Teleconverter
For now we have only one leaked teleconverter from Pentax.

Sony

Sony will most likely announce a new super-zoom bridge camera with a very fast processor, a new compact and one mirrorless model.

Canon

There is not much information on what Canon will announce for the CP+ show. There were some rumors for a new Canon G1 X Mark II camera. It seems that after all the buzz, there will not be a new Canon EOS 7D Mark II and the most likely scenario for CP+ will be a new entry level DSLR camera. A new DSLR with a global shutter capable of 2.5k video is also rumored, but it is not clear if it will be announced for CP+.

Nikon

    I like the logo for CP+ – one person gives it a thumbs up, another gives it thumbs down, balanced at least :-)

  • Graham Culleton

    I like the look of the new Fuji, can’t streach to one but like the style.

  • Neopulse

    Wonder if Phillip Bloom has got his hands on the Panasonic 4k prototype already.
