Summary: If I could give this camera negative stars, I would. The screen display on the back is severely discolored to the point that you can't even tell what the composition of the picture is supposed to be. that's really the only way to take a picture, too. There's no good setting for just looking through the viewfinder. the image on the screen is awful. it's blurry and grainy and would be impossible to tell if you had a good shot.
Summary: I have used digital cameras a great deal (about 60-100 pics per day) for my profession. This is absolutely the worst camera I have purchased to date. Macro is virtually non-existant and the camera tends to focus and then go out of focus and soon as you press the button to actually take the photo.
Summary: GE sucks. I bought this camera based on amazon reviews before taking a family trip to Ireland. We must have gotten a lemon. It worked fine before we went, but then, halfway through the trip, I had the awful discovery that 80% of my photos, which looked fine after I took them, had disappeared. Instead of my photos of the bucolic countryside, I saw nothing. White space. When I returned home and called GE, the first person I spoke with was sarcastic and unhelpful.
I may change this if they replace with one that works

Summary: I really did my research and this looked to be a great deal But when it came it would not focus and the white balance id not work. I am no novice. Had my own darkroom and have used seven different digital cameras since I was 13 (thats like 40 years). I had a friend also try. Finally I just wanted to return the unit and get a replacement that had been tested. They insisted I send ALL of the package back. I could not find part.
Summary: Took alot of pictures on a special day most turned out all white no picture at all..I bought this camera in June and save it to take on our vacation in August, now its to late to return it!! I would not recommend this camera for a dependable outcome. Poor video quality, blurred pics when some did show up!! Wasted a lot of money and very unhappy with product.
Summary: Product was as described. Information was on disk: Have NEVER BEEN ABLE TO GET THE DISK TO LOAD! CAMERA SITS HERE UNABLE TO UMDERSTAND HOW TO USE! Use to love GE products No More. There are still some of us that prefer printed information. At my age 73 its easier for me. At least should have been given option to get it in order to use the camera.
Summary: i purchased this camera thru amazon to replace a very expensive kodak i have been using for about 7 years, hoping with technology there would be even a better pic and things you can do with the camera. I have had this new ge camera for about 3 months and have used it on several events and it took awsome pics and really good vidio.
