Summary: GE classifies its E1480W camera as part of its "power" series, meaning it offers advanced features among point and shoot cameras, such as an 8X optical zoom lens, a 3.0-inch LCD, and 14.1 megapixels of resolution. For a camera that you probably can find for less than $150, my review of the E1480W shows that this camera is a "power" model in that price range as well.
GE has made the E1480W very easy to use, which is nice for beginning photographers.
Pros: Nice collection of features for sub-$150 camera, LCD is bright and large, Image quality very good for non-moving subjects, Camera is a good looking model, Panorama feature is easy to use
Cons: Shutter lag is a major drawback, Positioning of focus assist lamp is awkward, Image quality sometimes suffers with moving subjects, Occasional soft focus problems
Conclusion: Digital camera newcomer, General Electric, offers a competitive feature set and attractive price in its E1480W pocket camera. But images are noisy, even in shooting environments with good light.
Pros: Fast and responsive. Slim body with 8x optical zoom lens. Lots of features for the price.
Cons: Noisy images unless conditions are near-perfect. Lackluster UI. Proprietary USB port.
