General Electric X500

PC Magazine
14 August 2012
  • Conclusion: The General Electric X500 doesn’t excel in performance, but it aces value, packing a big 15x zoom lens into a $150 camera.
  • Pros: Inexpensive. 15x zoom lens. Electronic viewfinder. Pop-up flash. Some manual controls. Simple to use.
  • Cons: Mediocre image quality. Dismal low-light performance. Slow.

GE X500 Review

What Digital Camera
30 July 2012
  • Summary: The X500’s specification list gives the impression this camera could easily compete with far more expensive super zooms, and indeed when you look at the sweep panorama, Face AF, image stabilisation, auto scene mode selection and the 20 subject programs modes it’s a fair impression.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, offers a lot of kit for the price, 15x wide-angle zoom lens, manual controls, handling, simple to use
  • Cons: Very poor overall performance; slow AF; exposure and metering issues outdoors, indoors, with and without flash and in low-light conditions; images are soft; lacks detail; shutter lag
