Summary: If I could give this any less stars, I would. I bought this after comparing multiple reviews. PC World said it was the best for the price. This camera has only worked twice. It just completely stops working after charging for hours. The picture quality looked green, colors were not vibrant at all. Charging was awkward. The zoom was great, but still a poor quality picture. $50 completely wasted. I was left with no camera on our Thanksgiving trip to the snow.
Loved it at first, but it was a big disappointment.

Summary: I bought this camera for work (I often need to take photos for my job to document issues). It takes good photos and I like the option for a time and date stamp which I need for work. I also wanted a camera with a built in USB plug so I wouldn't have to carry and possibly lose a cord. So at first I thought this camera was great. I even recommended it to a co-worked who bought the same one. I did notice that when plugging it into the computers, it wouldn't always connect.
The GE 14MP Digital Camera Isn't Suitable for an Internet Retail Business

Summary: Initially, I was excited to be receiving the GE 14MP Digital Camera from the Amazon Vine Program because it was 7X. My Kodak EasyShare M341 Digital Camera ] is only 3X. Having been a faithful member of the Amazon Vine Program for over three-and-half-years, I have posted a tremendous amount of photographs of various products; this is part of my desire to produce a more complete, more honest review of a product. Many customers have found my photographs helpful.
Summary: I wanted a camera to take with me all over and it had to be tiny,about the size of a deck of cards with a three inch view finder and take good pictures and video. I just got my camera today. Set up was very easy and simple. It has a three inch view finder and 14MP and a 7X optical zoom and all under a $100.00. Charging was fairly simple of battery, battery placement took me several times to insert right. I like the cameras ease of use. I have not tried video mode yet.
Summary: This camera is simple to use and takes pretty decent photos. It's aimed at folks who want the camera to do most of the work and make most of the decisions. (I'm guessing that's around 90 percent of people who use cameras.) With its low price, it's a good value. I bring this to events where I have a 10 percent chance of losing the camera. The photos are good, indoors and outdoors, and if I lose the thing I'm not losing a $400-plus device.
Summary: I dig this camera it takes great pictures and resets fast so you can get to take your next picture sooner... Just be wary of the little flip out USB connector (so far so good but) it just feels like one day I'll be preoccupied with something while connecting the USB cord to the camera and then there'll be a snapping sound and that will be that...
Summary: I own a full sized DSLR with all the accessories but despite my love of photography, there are times when a big camera is bulky and more of a hassle than help. Other times safety or security is a concern so having a small, inexpensive camera handy is preferred. This fits the bill exactly! I also own the predecessor to this camera - the GE E1265 which is only 12.2 megapixels but provides a panoramic features as well.
Summary: It's amazing how fast technology moves. A few years ago, a 14 MP 7 x optical zoom digital camera for under $100 would have been unbelievable. Now, it's fairly common. So, why should you choose this camera when you can get a Sony, Canon, Polaroid or a host of any other more well known manufacturers at the same price point? There is no really good reason.
