  • Summary: The camera takes great photos in all the different settings I have tried. The only bad thing is the delay from when I press the button until the picture actually takes. There is anywhere from a 0.5 second to a 1.5 second shutter delay depending on the lighting or settings being used.

Not quite as advertised.

  • Summary: The GE X500 16MP 15x Optical/6x Digital Zoom HD Camera -Black looks good on paper, and in the several reviews that have shown up so far. But there are some technical details that might help people in deciding whether to buy this camera. From an online review that I wish I had understood before I ordered this camera: "As soon as you start shooting with this camera, you'll notice just how slow it is, even for an inexpensive camera.

  • Summary: Thought I'd try it since the photo quality was rated on par with better cameras on CR. But actually, it is lousy picture quality as compared with my little Panasonic and Fujifilm point and shoot cameras. Lense is poor quality, as I suspected it might be, but for the price and having a viewfinder, decided to try it. For casual use, it's o.k., but expensive for the low quality results. Also agree that screen and viewfinder imagery is poor.

There are problems with this unit!

  • Summary: I have several other cameras, including a high-end Canon DSLR. I wanted something I could carry in my car and not worry about it being stolen or beat-up. This camera, although it says General Imaging (GE), is a Chinese-made generic camera that several companies sell under their own brand. When it works, it's fine. Unfortunately, it doesn't always work. The design is a poor one. You have to turn it upside-down to take the SDHC card out.

  • Summary: THIS CAMERA WAS DISAPPOINTING. IT LOOKS GREAT! HOWEVER, IF YOU DON'T HOLD THE CAMERA SUPER STILL, THE PHOTOS WILL BE BLURRY. RUINED A HONORARY CELEBRATION WITH THIS CAMERA. MOST OF THE PICTURES ARE TERRIBLE! A $139 BUCKS FOR NOTHING! MY OLD CAMERA TAKES BETTER PHOTOS WITHOUT THE TEDIOUSNESS!!!

  • Summary: It's the closest I could come to a SLR Camera without the SLR price. But it works if the subject is not far away. Once you start getting closer, By using the telescopic features forget it. The closer you get the fuzzier the object is. O don't get me wrong I can scope in on a object almost 100 yards away. Just can't take a photo of it becuase it is a bluured mess. And My lil lcd viewing screen is Grainy as all heck.

  • Summary: Though this might be a one in a million chance that its just my random camera acting up , because I've heard such great things. But no matter how much i charged it it still said its battery was exhausted. i even changed the batteries 3 times it was still exhausted. Eventually i wouldn't even turn on. and when i called GE no one ever answered. all i'm saying is be careful of this product.

  • Summary: I was all set to purchase the Fujifilm S2940 when I saw the GE X500 on Walmart.com. It had all the right featues and I thought maybe it was the same as a Fujifilm for less money. I purchased the X500 and was disappointed from the start. 95% of the time the camera got the focus, exposure or color temperature wrong. I know it was capable of taking a good photo because occaisionally it got it right.

  • Summary: This camera is built on an older fujifilm finepix s series body with an unknown lens system from an unknown maker which is the down fall of this camera. Yes it does take nice pictures but the colors are muted and the zoom function is slow and sluggish the drive gears are noisy and just sound like the one true weak point of this camera.
