I hope you are talking about the Canon Powershot A540.. Wel let me tell you this, I own it and i'll tell you my experience. After a lot of researching (probably for about 4 months) i bought this camera.. And i should tell that this camera is simply amazing!! As for the pice i got it for around $170.. It takes great pictures and is very highly rated by most sites.. It has everything you'll need in a camera, Aperture and shutter priority modes, program and manual modes, ISO upto 800, many screen presets.. The best thing i like about it is that it has a larger number of automatic modes and features for amateurs and more advanced manual features for more advanced photographer.. This is the best in its price range. Well if anybody can find a better camera in this price then please let me know.. But i can bet on that.. You could also see my reviews about this camera on cnet.. Also check this site out..

I highly recommend this camera..

Powershot A540

Thank you! Yes, I am inquring about the Powershot A540. I have heard that the flash can be a bit slow to recycle and that the screen is grainy. But it sounds as though the other features make up for it's shortcomings. How would you compare the flash and grain content of the display against other comparable cameras? I like the larger display and fast shoot times....Thanks,

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?
