Piece of junk, will only focus occasionally.

Bossncobra, CNET
10 January 2012
  • Summary: Piece of junk, will only focus occasionally. Sent back for repair, was told camera was OK. It supposedly has auto focus but my pictures come out blurry most of the time. Wouldn't wish one on an enemy.
  • Pros: Takes nice pictures when it feels like working.
  • Cons: Won't focus most of the time.

Seller reluctantly refunded purchace price.......

xring363, Ebay
5 October 2011
  • Summary: The cameras video output was FRIED!! That's why the gentleman gave me a refund!! I can't possibly comment on the quality of the photos because they couldn't be downloaded from the camera. Customer service was very helpful from GI/GE. They are the people who explained the problem to me. I suppose I could have removed the SD card and plugged it into my external hard drive docking station but that's not the way I do things..........

  • Summary: Its Been Many years since I've up-dated our camera equipment. The more I play with this Camera the more I like it. Pictures are very clear and crisp,wonderful color. The features are beyond what most people will ever use, but they all have there purpose and are GREAT Features. READ THE INSTRUCTIONS::You will have the hang of it in No Time at all. Small Camera Not Made For Big Hands,SORRY but I'm calling that just the way it is.

Too Many Corners Cut

Walmart
14 June 2010
  • Summary: I bought this camera because on paper it looked fantastic. 14mp and a 15x zoom for this price. Was it too good to be true? Yup. The auto focus doesn't focus correctly half of the time, and even when it does the lens quality is so marginal that it could not fulfill the potential of a 5mp camera. Everything on closer magnification is fuzzy due to flare and ghosting. Too bad they didn't make the lens and auto-focus match the rest of the specifications.

Disappointed

Mark, Amazon
14 June 2011
  • Summary: Looking at the spec of the GE X5 it seems to have all the bells and whistles. It's when you take photos that the X5 starts to disappoint. First off, focusing is slow, with the lens whirring away for about one second, even in good light and an `easy' subject. Then, once you've taken a photo, you'll think for a moment it's out of focus, as the LCD preview appears as low resolution and takes a second or two to snap into full quality - this happens with each image as you...

Die Kamera entspricht nicht den Erwartungen wie in der Beschreibung angekündigt!

Ronald, Amazon
9 August 2013
  • Summary: Trotz der technischen Möglichkeiten kommt diese Kamera lange nicht an andere Markenprodukte heran - und das in jeder Hinsicht. Zu langsam, zu unscharf und das Handling läßt auch zu wünschen übrig.

  • Excerpt: если хотите снимков с сюрпризами в виде задержек срабатыванй экспозиций этот фотик для вас
  • Pros: фотик для своей цены в 5000рэ за которые я его покупал он достоин.хороший дисплей. с неочень хорошей защитой от царпин,электронный видоискатель очень выручил когда накрылся дисплей.потому как смена дисплея стоит 3000рэ.
  • Cons: при большом зуме без штатива не обойтись.экспозиций отрабатывает с задержками.от 5до 15секунд.
