What Camcorder can fit these specifications?

by trafieldstar / November 9, 2009 2:00 PM PST

College Student - budget $200 - $400

I would like to use it to film track and field.

Easy Play Back
Long Battery Life
Image Stabalizer
Decent in low light conditions
User Friendly
Not "Tiny"
Frame by Frame Playback
Remote Control <- nice but not necessary
Unsure if hard drive or miniDV would be best?

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?
