Sony DCR-SR47 camcorder

Consumer Reports rates this camcorder with 60 GB hardrive, 60 optical zoom as having good picture quality, good in low light, good image stabilization, good ease of use and good audio.
I'd appreciate feedback to their ratings. The low light rating is really important as I use my JVC in those situations and am really dissatisfied with the quality in low light and still image quality even on the fine setting.

Thanks for the information on this model.
Do you have any suggestions for a consumer model camcorder that does perform good in low lighting and with good image quality with a larger sensor/lens and not too expensive?

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?
