Summary: This is NOT an expensive camera. Nevertheless, I have certain expectations that were not met. My complaints are that the color doesn't seem true and it takes a long time start up or to reset between photos. I would not recommend this for purchase. I had another GE camera before this one and loved it til I dropped and broke it. That model is no longer available.
I'm an amateur and it's just OK but caution with video recording
8 September 2012
Summary: For amateur use, this camera does ok. It's a straightforward camera, so if you like the convenience of auto mode, just point and shoot. It fits nicely in your pocket, but I think the price point is a little too high (as of this review, $140). The photos aren't as focused as some of the other similarly priced cameras I've had (Canon, Nokia), and the poor audio during video recording is disappointing. Some nice stuff...
Summary: This is a decent enough pocket camera if you can get a good deal on it. It takes good pictures in low light, though the white balance is usually off. The image stabilization compensates for small movement well, and there wasn't a lot of noise in pictures. However, my beefs: -Panorama mode is designed nice, but does a poor job if you're not photographing a landscape. I tried to do the yard, but close-by trees threw it off.
