Sony S40 - Olympus D595

I have been unable to find any reviews or sample photos for either camera.

Here is a look at the specifications:


Unless you are wanting to print large photos, 1 megapixel will not be noticable.

Brands are about equal.


One Note: If you select the Sony S40 and you want to use the 640x480 video mode, you will need to buy a memory stick PRO. A regular memory stick is too slow for 640x480 movies.

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?
