Summary: We purchased this camera for our school yearbook staff. It was recommended by another staff member as being a good quality camera for the needs of the yearbook. There really hasn't been anything to dislike. The zoom on the camera was greater than some others we looked at and the price was good.
as a typical cannon fan .. i look forward to more from GE .

Summary: absolutely love this unit .. i am/was a professional freelance photographer accustomed to 35 mm .. this unit is super easy to adapt to and manage . not too light not too heavy . i look forward to upgrading in the near future but this is a perfect step back into the game . highly recommended for beginners as well . my kids love it !
Works very well and batteries seem to last a long time!

Summary: Excellent zoom. Clear pictures. Especially like the "Sketch" / pencil drawing mode. It gave me very clear pictures while being hand held on maximum zoom. It has a good variety of "scene" modes to choose from.
