Default New Camera Model Releases - When ?

Just curious since I haven't followed the camera world. It seems like a number of new camera models have been released lately & I think Jan (?) was another release month.

Are there specific times that manufactures tend to announce new models or is it just when engineering and marketing decide to kick them out the door?

Just wondering if there will be anything else new before Christmas.

You tend to see a lot of models come out around this time of year, as manufacturers want to take advantage of the year end buying season by releasing more competitive cameras (more camera sales happen in the 4th quarter of each year).

You also tend to see more product announcements in January and February, often at CES or PMA (two large trade shows):

Every other year, you tend to see a lot of announcements at Photokina (the world's largest photography related trade show, held during September every two years in Cologne, Germany). The next one will be in September 2010.
