Digital vs. D SLRs ?

by pla1945 / February 27, 2005 6:22 AM PST

Is there any advantage to a digital SLR over a "regular" digital camera?
I currently have a Minolta Dimage 7i and am considering a Nikon D 70.

Large selection of lenses available.

Little or no, shutter lag.

Better low light performance.

Less noise in images due to larger size of the sensor.

About 3 times as many manual controls.

More opportunity to spend money buying several lenses that one lens will do in lots of non DLSR cameras.

Having to lug around a bag with several lens in it just in case you need a macro or telephoto shot.

I hope he got a few good shots. He's lucky he doesn't get mugged. Wink

I wonder why he's not using a single point and shoot?

I guess the SLRs must have something that's pretty attractive.

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?
