A major event occurred at the beginning of 2015. The Consumer Electronics Show was the announcement event of multiple digital imaging products, including DSLRs, compacts, and lenses.

Many other products were revealed after CES 2015, while many others are expected to be revealed in February 2015 as part of the CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show 2015. Without much further ado, here are the most important camera news and rumors of January 2015!
