Nice to find a beginner-level camera with a viewfinder
It's difficult in today's camera market, which is flooded with ultra thin cameras, to find any beginner-level camera with a viewfinder. If you're a fan of the traditional 35mm film cameras, you're going to have a hard time duplicating that look in a beginner-level camera.
GE, through its General Imaging arm, has been one of the few camera manufacturers that has been willing to create large zoom cameras with viewfinders at a low price point.
This was a really great deal. I was impressed with the speed of the shipping and the quality of the product. If I had any complaint... I hate I had to go to the Post Office to sign for this product. It kind of takes away from why I purchase "on line"....I hate retail stores and lines. But for the great deal, I did not mind that much.
Very impressive continuous shooting, Poor image quality
The best way to purchase the E1410SW is therefore with a discount. At $160 this camera is competitive in price, but not in performance. Should you stumble across a deal of some kind, something that involves buying the camera for, say, less than $100, that will be a good value. Otherwise there are just too many other options out there.
iAuto shooting mode is accurate and easy in all situations
The GE E1410SW is a very powerful ultra-compact digicam. Featuring a 10x optical zoom lens, 14-Megapixel CMOS imaging sensor, powerful burst modes and full 1080p video capture, you will not find another camera with these features in this price range.
Fast continuous shooting at full resolution
The GE G100 offers plenty of features and is available for a decent price. Sadly image quality isn't fantastic and is slow in use, taking a while to switch on and focus when using the zoom. But on the bright side, it has full manual controls, 1080p HD video recording and can shoot at a fast rate when using continuous shooting.
Camera is very easy to use, LCD is bright and sharp
Finding a large optical zoom lens (8X) in such a thin camera (0.7 inches in thickness) certainly made me notice the GE E1680W. In the sub-$200 price range, the E1680W has an above-average list of features.
Unfortunately, the E1680W's image quality is only average. The camera exhibited some softness in a variety of shooting situations, but it especially struggled in low-light conditions.
7x optical zoom lens
The GEJ1470s has a number of appealing features for the price, with a 7x optical zoom lens, 14 megapixel sensor, 3inch screen and built in USB plug. However, it would be good if the camera included a wider lens and optical image stabilisation, as the camera struggles at the telephoto end to take a sharp shot. Noise is higher than from competitors and to get the best detail from images using a low ISO setting is recommended.
HD video with zoom capability
The GE J1470S follows in the footsteps of General Electric's other budget cameras by delivering remarkable features at a low price. While reviewers and users agree the bland J1470S isn't much to look at, big things come in its small, 4.6-ounce chassis: a 14-megapixel sensor, a huge 3-inch LCD display and a long 7x zoom lens that works while shooting HD video (720p).
A great starter camera if you want better pics than a point and shoot.
I'm not sure how long the X500 will last (because I got it in the mail two days ago) but so far I'm very glad that I bought this camera. It's a lot like Fuji's bridge camera and if you know the menus and buttons from their cameras then this thing will be a snap because its pretty much a carbon copy. The layout is simple enough for a beginner or teen who's looking into photography and it wont break the bank like a nikon or canon with the same specs.
Wonderful camera at a great price!!
This camera is probably not going to satisfy those who insist on Canon or Leica or Nikon performance (and at $150 I don't think you can honestly expect that)...but for those of us that simply want a good camera with a powerful optical zoom at a great price, this is a wonderful option!! You won't be disappointed!!
Very easy to use, just a point-and-shoot interface
GE's C1433 is an entry-level point-and-shoot digital camera with the lowest price point of GE's newly announced models, about $80. Features include red-eye removal, face, smile, and blink detection, image stabilization, and a 14-megapixel resolution
Not very useful
All up, the GE PJ1 is a novel product, but it's not very useful. It doesn't excel as a camera, and it certainly doesn't excel as a projector. For business presentations, you're better off having people crowd around your laptop rather than trying to use the projector; the only time the projector may be of use is when showing just-taken pictures to more than a handful of people at a time. But even then the clarity of the images won't be good.
Give the X5 a bright, sunny day though, and its images are certainly acceptable for casual photographs and for use at reduced magnification.
If you need an extensive zoom and can't afford to shell out for a more fully-featured superzoom, the X5 will be adequate enough, but its inconsistent image quality and slow performance won't endear it to anyone more than just a casual photographer.
