Summary: This camera is of average size(compact) but it literally eats batteries. The brand of battery does not matter nor does the type of battery. But the pictures are surprising crisp. Wish I could find a battery to overcome this battery eater.
Summary: I bought this camera in because the price. I was amazed of all the features and quality of pictures. I traveled for Christmas and I took 300 pics, then I traveled in summer, 1200 more pics, last Christmas again, 600 pics and my camera died!! It was never hit, well taken care but not long life. So we can say it is a one year camera if you take a lot of pics. If not...it can last.
Summary: I bought this camera for my adult daughter. She liked the size and ease of use. However, the build quality of the camera was poor. Almost right away the lens cover stopped working properly and within a few months the entire camera had gone belly up. I gave her an Olympus Stylus to replace it and won't purchase another GE.
