I checked professional reviews of this camera before buying. They rated it highly for a beginner camera. I've been photographing for 21 years and found this to be a much more capable camera than a simple point & shoot. It is very quick to start, ready for a photo in less than 2 seconds. It is user friendly, and is easy on batteries. I like the 2 AA batteries versus a rechargeable as I don't have to lug around the charger. It has an automatic mode and several specialized scene modes. It also has the most amazing face and smile sensor. Find the face, click the camera and then tell the subject to smile. When they do, it shoots the photo. With 12 Megapixels the photo is plenty big enough for cropping. The only area I have yet to work out is a close up mode. Other than that, I would recommend this camera to my best friend without hesitation.
After searching everywhere for an inexpensive point and shoot camera I found the GE A-1250...
Not only was the camera exactly what I wanted, but for the price I was surprised to find a camera with all the features! You might see other cameras that come close, but you will pay much more. If you are looking for a good inexpensive first or second camera give this one a closer look. You won't be disappointed. Make sure you get some rechargeable batteries, and an SD card. You'll need it with all the great pictures you will take!
In 12.2 Megapixel mode, it's not as good as some higher end 12 megapixel cameras. However, you do get what you pay for, and I did indeed get what I paid for and then a little extra.
The video is pretty good, and has optical zoom, and works well. Even in low light conditions such as my kids soccer game after dark with the artificial illumination. I was able to video the entire field from one vantage point. And with my son being the lead scorer on his team, that's a must have..... yes I did just say that, I want everyone to know I'm a proud father.
One thing that I really do not like is having to carry around AA batteries all over the place. This camera does not come, nor can you use recharable batteries in it. It must be AA Alkaline or Lithium batteries, the Ni-cad batteries will not work if you are going to use flash or video.
Over all, I wouldn't say this camera is "Excellent", but it's better than average, and for $60 what more could you ask for.
A great little point and shoot! The higher the
Number the better the camera gets. (750,1050,etc.)
A 10 mega pix
Model sells new for $75 so getting a used
One for a bargain price is great! It takes good
Pictures and if you break it you have not much
I purchased this GE A1250 12.2 MP Digital Camera with 5x Optical Zoom Lens on eBay. I was amazed to say the least that a plethora of features were packed into this camera.With the spec like 12.2 MP and 5x Optical Zoom Lens and user friendly menu controls how can even a novice go wrong. Coupled with this it has got some stunning features like Panaroma Mode for which one has to pay more. The pictures came out equisitely beautiful and videos are fantastic. At the end of the day I was wondering how could they make this camera at such an affordable price and it is steal at the offered price. I am sure that a prospective buyer will never get disapppointed on buying this camera. It comes Highly Recommended!!!
