GE X5

CNET
4 June 2011
  • Summary: The GE X5 megazoom is a very good value, as long as you understand its photo and performance limitations.
  • Cons: The X5's shooting performance is really slow, and it's not good indoors without a flash and in low-light conditions.

GE X5 Review

About.com
2 November 2010
  • Summary: For the most part, I'm not a big fan of fixed lens cameras. Most are expensive, and, for just a few hundred more dollars, you could purchase a DSLR for vastly improved performance. So I was interested to have a chance to review the GE X5 camera, which offers a 15X zoom lens for less than $150 (if you shop around), something that's rare in a new camera.
  • Pros: Image quality is very good when conditions are right, Very low price for 15X zoom, Flash photos are really good when conditions are right, Eight resolution choices available, Inclusion of EVF is nice in low-priced model
  • Cons: Photo results are inconsistent, Most fixed lens cameras offer bigger zoom lenses, Shutter lag is a problem, Four AA batteries are handy, but add to camera's weight, Flash doesn't pop up automatically when needed, must be opened manually

GE X5 Digital Camera

GadgetSpeak
22 September 2010
  • Summary: This is called a ‘Bridge’ camera , nothing to do with the card game but it is a bridge between a pocket digital camera and progression to a D SLR camera . The reason is the size and shape is like the latter but controlled like the former.

GE’S X5 Camera bridges the gap : General Electric GE X5 digital camera

GadgetSpeak
23 July 2010
  • Summary: The GE X5 14.1Mpixel bridge camera is aimed at that middle ground between the digital SLRs and the compact camera s. As it is a very competitively priced versatile camera it will be a very attractive proposition for those on a budget who want the additional features that it offers.

GE X5 im Test: günstiger, aber langsamer Bridgekamera-Underdog mit ordentlicher Bildqualität

CNET
8 April 2011
  • Summary: Eine Bridgekamera mit 15-fach-Zoom, elektronischem Sucher, AA-Batterien zur Stromversorgung, manuellen Aufnahmemodi und 27-Millimeter-Weitwinkel – soweit so gut. Und soweit so billig: Die GE X5 bietet diese Ausstattung bereits für weniger als 150 Euro. Moment mal – GE? Richtig, die X5 stammt von General Electrics. Wie sich der Kamera-Underdog in der Praxis schlägt, zeigt der Testbericht.
  • Pros: 15-fach-Zoom mit 27-Millimeter-Weitwinkel, manuelle und halbautomatische Aufnahmeprogramme, sehr günstig, elektronischer Sucher
  • Cons: sehr langsam, schlechte Bildqualität bei wenig Licht, nur SD-Auflösung im Videomodus

A câmera que vai longe

Tech Tudo
28 January 2011
  • Conclusion: Uma câmera com cara de semi-profissional para iniciantes ou fãs de fotografia acostumados às câmeras mais compactas, com 14 megapixels e um super zoom de longo alcance para quem quer investir em fotos mais ousadas, sem gastar muito por isso.
  • Pros: LCD de 2,7’’., Zoom Óptico: 15x., Bom custo-benefício., Facilidade nas configurações.
  • Cons: Alimentação por pilhas AA., Fotos um pouco distorcidas., Ruído alto no ISO 3200.
