Camcorder purchase

by nycjane / June 4, 2006 11:04 AM PDT

Its been awhile since I purchased a camcorder, last one was a Sony Hi-8. Want one functional in low light and dependable. Have read many camcorder review sites and settled on Mini-DV format. Can anyone help me decide between Sony DCR-HC96 / Panasonic GS-300 and a JVC-GR-X5? I have read that the Sony menu is cumbersome and if there is a problem the help is not there from the company. Thanks in advance for any ideas or insight. Was hoping to spend about $5-600 From what I've read about most Canon's they are poor low light performers in my price range, that is why left them out.

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?
