4K is the big buzz phrase this year. Camera-wise though, the selection is still a bit slim. Sony showed off its new FDR-AX100 and Panasonic featured a prototype 4K Lumix camera.

JVC recently launched the GC-XA2 ADIXXION action camera. While the name is a bit awkward, the first-gen ADIXXION came out of nowhere with some pretty cool features, including a 1.5″ LCD built into the camera and a 5x zoom. However, user complaints about battery life and WiFi connection left a big question mark next to the camera.
The second generation model now sports 1080/60p and 720/120p HD video (up from 1080/30p and 720/60p in the first-gen) for some serious slow motion capability.
