1 of 9 Canon

Canon 5D Mark IV

Price: $3,500 (body); $4,400 (with 24-70mm f4L lens); $4,600 (with 24-105mm f4L II lens)

Availability: September 2016

The outlook: The long-awaited replacement for Canon's veteran pro dSLR adds a lot of features to bring it up to date, including 4K and HDR video, Wi-Fi, and GPS. This model switches to the company's Dual Pixel CMOS as well, which should improve focus speed and performance, especially when shooting video.

Nikon D3400

Price: $650 (with AF-P 18-55mm VR lens), $1,000 (with AF-P 18-55mm VR lens and AF-P 70-300mm lens)

Availability: September 2016

The outlook: Nikon's cheap dSLR gets a minor refresh. There's nothing technologically notable about the D3400, but it promises to be a very popular entry-level model.

Fujifilm X-T2

Price: $1,600 (body); $1,900 (with 18-55mm f2.8-4 lens)

Availability: September 2016

The outlook: Fujifilm's first camera to shoot 4K video, the mirrorless X-T2 claims to make the company's fastest camera even faster, thanks to an improved autofocus system. And while Fujifilm's video quality has had some problems in the past, our initial tests show that the X-T2's looks quite good.

GoPro Hero5

Price: Probably between $450 and $550

Availability: Likely in October 2016

The outlook: This hasn't been announced yet, but we've had confirmation that it's a real product. Given that the Hero4 came out two years ago, any update would be welcome, but rumors say that it will have a longer-lasting battery, a bump to 8K video and a new touchscreen interface.

Nikon DL18-50

Price: $850

Availability: Unknown

The outlook: One of Nikon's first 1-inch sensor compacts, the DL18-50 sounds like a serious competitor for the Panasonic Lumix LX100. It uses the speedy autofocus system from the Nikon 1 series, shoots 4K and super-slow-motion video, and has a fast f1.8-2.8 lens. It was announced in February 2016, though, and while it's available for preorder there's still no estimated ship date.

Nikon DL24-85

Price: $650

Availability: Unknown

The outlook: One of Nikon's first 1-inch sensor compacts, this model's lower price and slightly longer zoom range than the DL18-50, along with the same wide f1.8-2.8 maximum aperture, fast autofocus system from the Nikon 1 series and support for 4K and super-slow-motion video make it a potentially serious competitor for the Sony Cyber-Shot RX100 IV. It was announced in February 2016, though, and while it's available for preorder there's still no estimated ship date.

Nikon KeyMission 360

Price: Unknown

Availability: Possibly October 2016

The outlook: Nikon announced its first action cam in January 2016, but with little detail save that it's rugged and can shoot 360-degree video in 4K. While there's no pricing, Nikon's last update says it's expected in October 2016.

8 of 9 NIkon

Nikon DL24-500

Price: $1,000

Availability: Unknown

The outlook: Nikon's first bridge camera with a relatively large 1-inch sensor, the DL24-500 was announced in February 2016 but has yet to get an official ship date; it's available for preorder, however, with no date. While its f2.8-5.6 maximum aperture for the 21x lens isn't nearly as fast as similarly priced competitors, it does offer modern features like 4K and slow-motion video and Nikon's fast hybrid autofocus system.
