I am not too keen on Fujifilm cameras.
They work fine but don't seem to stand-out in any way.

I have changed my mind on Kodak.
They have finally smelled the coffee and are producing some upscale gear. They are using Schnieder (spelling) lenses on their better cameras.

The Canon powershot G2/3 are out of production.
The latest is G6.

I just used a Konica-Minolta Z2 at a wedding. The reception hall was a bit dark and the powerful flash on the Z2 was a life saver.

I also used an older Olympus point-and-shoot. I had a good bit of noise in those photos due to weaker flash. But a software noise filter saved the day.

The Canons are the highest rated, but probably much more expensive than the others. If price doesn't matter than probably one of those. Personally, I say the Z2 because its the camera that I intend to buy. It's fast and has a great zoom. I've had good results with lower tier fuji models as well and so the only one I wouldn't recomend would be Kodak who isn't known for picture quality.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
