Summary: This camera took great pictures, especially outdoors, but after about 3 years of use horizontal lines and bright light started showing up in pictures. I'm told that that is an indication of a sensor failure, which necessitates chucking the camera. So, I was satisfied while it lasted, but I expect a digital camera to last more than 3 years.
Summary: I bought this model in 2010 to take pictures of my grandmother on our last visit before she died. It is my first and only digital camera. The pictures are a good quality and it is easy to use. The batteries don't last very long but I started using rechargeable batteries.
Summary: This is aslightly dated camera that provides all the features and quality that a common traveller needs while carrying a modest cost. Really, how many of us need to think we are professional photographers! This does it for under $40.
Summary: After buying several different cameras for my daughter, I was beginning to believe there were no decent cameras out there at a rate that I could afford. We had returned several that wouldn't even take a single picture or video. This one, however, was even better than we expected. Easy to figure out.
Summary: A1050 by Purchased LIKE NEW A1050, for a SONG, on eBay from retail seller taking trade-ins. Awesome ZOOM and battery life is not as bad as reported by some. Quality of this 5 year old camera is superior to GE cameras of today in materials and quality feeling. I do not have experience with a newer camera to compare with this one. I have observed newer and comparable cameras by GE - more plastic overall without quality feeling.

Summary: After taking over 1500 pictures and putting the camera into all kinds of situations I have to say it is a good camera. With my job I can go from being under a house to up in the attic. Dust, moisture, and even being dropped a couple of times hasn't seemed to hurt it at all. I like the fact it has a HDMI output. It lets me hook the camera to the homeowners tv to show them exactly what or where a problem is. The rechargeable battery is a plus as well.
