It wasn't that long ago that 4K and an interchangeable lens camera meant a high price. Not so these days, and Canon might be part of that reason.
The phone camera may be steadily improving, but for folks looking for a 4K capable camera with weather-proofing, you may still need something else, and that's where Panasonic's latest comes in.
You're phone can usually work as the basic camera you take with you, but if you need a little more power or a bit of extra reach with zoom, a compact could still help you out, which is where Panasonic's latest could be useful.
Not sure if you want a camera that comes off looking super modern? Fujifilm's latest goes the other way, delivering modern tech under the hood of a deliciously retro design.
Not sure if your phone would cut it as a camera on holiday? You may want to consider a compact with a little bit of oomph, and Nikon has two more of those to start the year.
If buying a new camera was one of the things to do this year, you might be intrigued by a launch from Sony, which brings 4K filmmaking to a selfie capable camera with some super fast autofocus in the a6400.
