Can somebody explain me this!!! Please!

by norbertoroman / February 22, 2007 9:36 PM PST

I'm thinking about buying the New Canon ZR850 or the last year! Canon Elura! Can somebody tell which one should be better? And on the ZR850 Specifications it said this:

ZR850's lack of an analog-to-digital converter. If you're looking for a way to convert analog video to digital, you'll have to look elsewhere.

If you have an old analog camcorder that recorded to Hi8 or VHS-(C) tapes, you cannot digitize (convert it to digital) in order to edit them or burn onto a DVD (through a computer). A computer only uses digital. This feature is only important if you have an old analog camcorder or other analog device.
The analog to digital feature in the digital camcorder will let you hook up that old camcorder (if you have one) to the digital one so you can use the computer for editing (and storage) of the tape if necessary.

That should read "You *can* digitize..."

By the way, the Elura 100 was rated one of the best camcorders of 2006 last year.

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?
