It really depends what you're looking for and what is important to you. Not knowing that, it's hard to advise. However, if you search for reviews for those online, hopefully you'll get an idea of their various pros and cons.

Hi. I'm also looking at the Pansonic TM700 and also the Sony XR 550V. I'm looking for a camcorder that has a good viewfinder (a must) though I might go with mini dv instead of a HDD. Also looking at the Panasonic HS 700. Thanks for any advice you might have.

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?
