Canon has announced a few P&S cameras and a new version of the 55-250 (budget zoom) that uses STM technology.  This brings the number of STM equipped lenses to 4- 18-55 iS STM, 18-135 IS STM, 40mm STM and now the 55-250 IS STM.  For parents looking to capture smoother video of their child on the field – this is a great answer.

EF-S 55-250 IS STM will be available in late september and sell for $350.  Beyond the addition of STM the new lens will be sharper and offer more contrast across the rane(a good thing) and offers internal focusing- nothing sticks out as you focus, more like a professional level lens.  All in all quite nice imrpovements to this budget zoom.Canon 55-250 IS STM Lens (NEW)

Canon PowerShot G16 continues a long line of enthusiasts level P&S.  The G16 offers minor upgrades from the G15(the lens, sensor and design are all identical to G15) Wifi, Digic 6 processor which gives you a slightly faster burst mode of 12.1 fps and 60p video.

Canon PowerShot S120 also gets WiFi, a slightly faster lens (F1.8-5.7 vs F2.0-5.9) and the Digic 6 which means 12.1fps and 60p video recording.    The S1110 was one of my top picks for pocketable P&S the inclusion of WiFi is nice.  There are a few other P&S and certainly some micro 4/3 that offer better quality but it is hard to find anything this small, with the nice manual control scheme that offers very good quality images and video.    Did you know my very first video on my channel was a review of the S90.  I think you will agree I have improved some since then.

 Shadow Riders - Now I kinda wish I had photoshopped cowboy hat shadows for each of us! From family adventures in Saguaro National Park, Arizona
 Menzie's Penstemon or as the nerds say - Penstemon davidsonii ;) Found these little purple flowers on the way down from Paradise in Mt Rainier National Park and thought they made a nice foreground to the beautiful and still snowcapped peak in the distance.
