Good picture quality even indoors, but unusable video mode

Summary: The GE J1470S is a lightweight compact camera with 14 megapixels and 7x optical zoom. It also features digital image stabilization that has some, but not much, stabilizing effect to reduce blurs due to handshakes. One thing that surprised me was its picture quality, which is quite good in most situations, from sunny outdoors to indoors with adequate lighting. It's when the lighting is dim that it fails to deliver at high ISO (sensitivity) settings.
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 [ Kodak Easyshare M341 Digital Camera (Black) ] 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.
Mediocre camera that takes acceptable pictures for a Benjamin
6 June 2012
Summary: Pretty much everything about this camera says "cheap". You can only charge the battery in the camera. Instead of a miniature female USB port, it has a full-size male plug that folds out (used for both charging the battery and data transfer). It's relatively sturdy, but would still be easy to break off. The included charging cord (which is a fairly unusual full-size male-to-female USB cable) is short; you'll be well chained to your charger or computer with this one.
Summary: The images produced by this camera is surprisingly good. They are noisy with visible graininess, especially when you get to higher ISOs, but at this entry level price point, the resulting images are not bad at all. It has 14 megs of resolution which is huge, that is even more pixels than my first DSLR, an 8-meg Canon Rebel. There is a separate button for the video which is very convenient.
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.
Do you really want a "GE" camera? Only if you must have IS at this price.

Summary: You will never be happy having spent $100 on this camera, because it looks and feels like a cheap plastic toy camera, and for the same money you can get a Canon, or Sony, or Nikon, or another brand that makes cameras. And their cameras will feel as though they are not toys. This one is working OK after a few days, but I have no sense that it will last.
