Summary: My GE J1250 review shows this is a similar camera. It carries a slightly higher price than the A1250, but it works very well as an introductory point and shoot camera for beginners. If you can find the J1250 at a price more in line with the A1250 (less than $100), it would be a great bargain.
Pros: Response times are very good, Extremely easy to use, Image colors and photo exposures are good, Menus are tailored to the current shooting mode, 5X optical zoom lens moves quickly
Cons: LCD could be bigger and sharper, Focus is a little soft in most instances, Manual modes are very limited, Could use more scene mode options
