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: I bought this camera to take on vacation in Europe and was disapointed that the panoramic feature would not function after the first use. Missed a lot of great opportunities for awesome 360 degree shots in Rome. It's not much more than a point and shoot quality-wise.
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: 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: Die Kamera ist in Ordnung - nur fehlt eine deutsche Beschreibung - Bis heute (29.01.2014) warte ich trotz Anmahnung über Amazon auf eine Rechnung - Nachteil: Die Batterien müssen öfter gewechselt werden - keine Akkufunktion - Ich behalte die Kamera
