Welcome to the first AP newsletter of 2014. And what a start to the year it is - the team is out at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas hard at work (yes, really - no gaming machines for us, just hard work) trying glean all the inside knowledge and news that we can. To keep up with what's going on why not visit our CES blog?

So then, what do we know thus far terms of product? Well, Fujifilm has announced a quartet of bridge cameras, including a weather reisitant one, along with the XF56mm f/1.2 R portrait lens which will be released next month. And for smartphone photographers the company has released an instant printer, the Instax Share SP-1, for printing images sent via Wi-Fi.

Not to be outdone Saker International, manufactuer of Polaroid-branded cameras, has launched a quartet of Wi-Fi-enabled bridge cameras, including a model with a 50x optical zoom called the iE5036W.

Meanwhile, Panasonic is using the expo to show off its ‘premium' TZ60 compact which has DSLR users firmly in its viewfinder. Why not read our First Look? At the same time, the firm is taking aim at the 'Selfie' generation with its Wi-Fi-enabled Lumix DMC-TZ55 compact. A new Leica DG Nocticron lens was on show too, and likewise we have a review of it for you to read.

Nikon hasn't been backward in coming forward, either. The company is showcasing its 'next-generation professional flagship' D4S. And in a move that must surely mean there's more quartets at CES than the Royal Academy of Music, Nikon is to release four Coolpix models, including the L830, which comes with a 34x zoom. Pre-CES rumours of a new Nikon DSLR have proven to be correct with the arrival of the D3300.

Of course, ther's much more news - from Sony and Sigma, for instance - and you can keep abreast of events via the AP News pages on the website. 

Of course, it's not all about Las Vegas. For example you may remember recent talk of renewed interest in film photography and darkroom work. However, since the arrival of digital there have been fewer and fewer public-access darkroom. Now, though a new website has been launched to help photographer in the search for a darkroom.

Phew, how's that for comprehensive? Well it's enough for now so see you next week.
