by pawprints1986 / August 3, 2012 1:45 PM PDT

I am looking into starting to vlog, but i dont have a whole lot to spend (under $150 would be fantastic, but up to $200 is doable). im a student so cant afford much.

My current camera is standard definition, 5.1 megapixel, and 3.4xoptical zoom.

its roughly 6 or 7 years old.

its great for photos but hte video mode stinks lol.

anyone have any good recommendations?

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?
