Sony announcement

Earlier in the month, Herbert Keppler from Pop Photo asked them point blank if they were going to use the KM hot shoe and got no answer, yet they say in the announcement that KM owners will be able to use their lenses and accessories with the new DSLRs. Hopefully this will include the flash units. It would make good sense to use as much of the tehcnology that they paid for as possible.

I'm not sure that would make a lot of sense to Sony. They

usually want to set up a situation where customers must buy things from them, and where customers cannot keep using old equipment for extended periods. They are probably far more interested in new customers who buy a lot than in old customers with old equipment.

Things like flash units are more profitable than the camera itself.

Hot Shoe

The Konica Minolta DSLR flash system is probably one of the most versatile.

The settings build into the camera take a good bit of time to master.

Sony will have a real challenge to duplicate it.

They may opt for something simpler (I hope not).

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?
