At some point you'll be shooting in low light, and Fuji is the brand for that. The outgoing F11 and upcoming F30 have 4x zooms, the s5200 has a 10x zoom (consider that Mongolia has distances). One thing I like about my s5200 is that the lens doesn't have to extend when turned on and retract when turned off, because it's always extended-- saves time and batteries, plus it's a lot more sealed off from dust and other outside elements. But it makes the camera bigger, which might be a problem when you travel.

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?
