Canon S90 or SX120

by akmontgomery / February 5, 2010 10:15 PM PST

I have it narrowed down to either the S90 or the SX120. Which would be a better camera for me? Would the S90 be too much camera for me? I realize it's double in cost, but want to get the best pics. I do like the zoom on the 120 though. But if I understand things correctly a bigger sensor size is better and the S90 has a bigger sensor. I won't do much with manual, but may on occassion. I will mostly be shooting family pics and vacations. Thank you!

Canon S90 - SX120

Both cameras have the important manual controls.

The S90 uses the larger sensor and bright f/2.0 lens to improve its low light performance.
So, if you plan on using the camera in low light situations (without flash), the S90 is the better choice.

If you have need of more optical zoom, the SX120 is the better choice.

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?
