The FE-320 is not sold in the USA and I could not find any reviews for that camera.
But, the FE-320 uses the same lens and sensor as the FE-280.
The FE-280 got a pretty good review, but after I looked closely at the sample photos from that camera, I was disappointed. They were out of focus on the right and left sides.

The Stylus 1000 was better, but it had soft focus on the Extreem left and right sides.

I have no recommendations for an Olympus.

I have nothing against Olympus cameras.
I have an older D550 Olympus and it still produces excellent photos.
When Olympus started marketing their Ultra Compact cameras they dropped the ball.
The lenses they are using in these small cameras are sharp in the middle and soft on the sides and corners.
That is truly sad for a company that is noted for making excellent lenses.
Hopefully they will get their act together in the near future.

If you are interested in cost effective Ultra Compact cameras, I suggest you look at the Sony "W" series of cameras and the Canon SD series of cameras.

Also check out the new Casio S10.
It got a very good review.
Checking out sample photos from the S10 shows a very sharp lens.

The S10 is only 0.6 inch thick.

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?
