Advice on new cam to get

by eeyore6802 / January 30, 2006 2:02 AM PST

I'd like some feedback on what everyone would think would be a good cam to get. I think i tend to want the newest and coolest but I don't really need all that Happy I tend to use my camera's for the average stuff,(family pics,some babies, occasional night pics, and vacation pics) I always wanted to have a nice hig megapixel in case I wanted to enlarge but the truth is I never really have. I can't see needing to go any larger than an 8x10 and that would probably be rare. Price is not a huge issue although thinking if i get what I actaully need as opposed to whats hot I don't think I'll be in that high a price range. The type of storage doesn't matter, the only feature I really want to make sure it has is to imprint the date on the pic. The canon I have now doesnt have that and I'm a little disappointed. Looking forward to all your recommendations!

Also forgot to add about the flash-I have no lag with the canon i owned the but nikon when using the flash takes quite a while longer before the pic is snapped which can be a problem trying to catch a particular shot in time.

The Canon A610/620 is a good choice for performance and photo quality.

But I don't know if it has the date print feature.


I don't know of any database that keeps track of cameras with the date feature. You seldom even see it mentioned in the specifications, even when the camera has it.


Since all digital cameras include the date, time, and all camera information in the photo file itself (EXIF data), there is little need for a date feature. So most cameras do not offer such a feature.

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?
