Grab this ahead of any pocket P&S

  • Summary: I was tired of taking pictures with my Insignia 12mp 1080p camcorder for the last year or so, and wanted to step up some. Tho the pictures were absolutely fine, it is fully auto, period.

Exceeded initial expectations!

  • Summary: I've had my phone for a few days and must say that I am pleased. I'm still getting used to but I'm glad for the advice from other purchasers to read the manual first - there are so many features. It does have a quick guide though and you can upload the full manual to your phone for quick reference.

I like the camera for the most part

  • Summary: So I got this today and was able to check it out. I'm an amateur photographer, but am all right with most cameras that don't have 534853234 functions. Unfortunately, this camera has 4567485645 functions. My photo quality isn't consistent is the only thing that is bothering me.

Pretty Good

  • Summary: I have seen reviews about this camera's picture quality, and well I may be an amateur but my eye sight is excellent. For your average user at this price the camera rocks.(once configured) as far as the weight goes it only affects my pictures if I'm trying to shoot while viewing from the...
  • Pros: Price. Features and options are great for me, (I'm an amateur) Reading the manual helped a lot, took me about 20 minutes to figure out all the basic operations and features that I would need/use. I have large hands and this camera is ideal,(in comparison to many of todays digital cameras) the but...
  • Cons: No manual. This camera eats batteries!

I like it!!

  • Pros: The camera has pretty cool settings. Actually a lot more than I'm use to. My wife and I have been using our phones for years now. My wife has little hands and she says it just feels perfect.
  • Cons: The first one I got was DOA. Of course Newegg fixed that for me. I didn't have it in time for my wife's b-day but she was still happy getting it the next day.

Can't be beat for the money!

  • Summary: Frankly, I love this camera. I can take it hiking, on horseback, or to the beach, without worry. It's small, easy to use, and is capable of taking phenomenal photos. It also takes wonderful macro shots, and works well indoors with, and without, the flash.
  • Pros: I own several pro DSLR's, but the GE X500 is my go-to, grab it quick camera. It takes wonderful shots, and has features normally only found on cameras costing 3 times as much. It also uses AA batteries, which are available anywhere in the word, unlike proprietary battery packs. I am constantly am...
  • Cons: The camera is not the fastest. Be sure to use a "10" speed SD card in it, and this will help. Video records in ".MOV" files, which is OK for a quick snip, but it's not HD. The lens cap never stays on (same as with many other cameras too!). Focus times are somewhat slow. Not a super "fast-action" ...

Good Camera for the Money

Anonymous, Newegg
27 March 2013
  • Summary: Overall I'm happy with my purchase. Gotten some really good pictures with this, including the moon. Not a easy object to take pictures of. Printed out the manual, the CD is of no use to me when I'm using it. Being a refurbished camera I got the extra year warranty, just to be on the safe side.
  • Pros: Nice camera for the money. Been using it for a couple of weeks. Comes with a CD with the manual; printed out the English version. Isn't to bad on the batteries, I used Energizer rechargeable, which are a few years old at this point. I find the fit good, the camera, with batteries is still lightwe...
  • Cons: I would have to say my only con at this point is the slow shutter speed. Even under ideal conditions it's slow to recover from picture to picture. Reason for only 4eggs. There are too many settings, darn camera is smarter than me (not sure that is a real con)

pixel problem

rae, Amazon

  • Summary: When I received the camera I noticed a pixel was out. It doesn't show up in the pictures and it's a wonderful camera it reached my expectations. Only problem was the pixel being out when I received it.
