CanonSX1 IS vs. Nikon Coolpix P90

by pcourville / April 5, 2009 9:16 AM PDT

Need to buy a camera to get better action and long distance (on the ball field or swimming, etc.)pics of kids in sports. Currently Have a Canon SD950, which is great for outdoor and close shots. Would rather not have the bother of a RSL. Have looked at the "power zooms" and narrowed it to Canon SX1 IS and Nikon Coolpis P90. (I think, unless someone convinces me otherwise!) So far BroadwayPhoto has best prices. Any comments on camera or sites for good prices.

I'd hold off or

Buy the SX10IS instead. The Nikon P80 was not the best camera when compared to the other superzoom cameras and there isn't a decent review yet of the camera. The SX1 was reviewed and did not receive good scores. Dpreview recommended the SX10 as a better camera than the SX1.

The Nikon P90 could be a very good camera or just another superzoom that doesn't perform as well as the competition. You'll have to wait and see, unless you just have to have it now and take the chance.

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?
