This GE Camera Has It All!
I have had my new camera now for over a year and decided to write a review. I needed a new camera and found this GE Power Pro series to be perfect for my needs.
Before I ordered it there were only two aspects that had me wondering if I should order it at all. First the GE brand. Now I knew GE to be a great brand for some things but I never knew they made cameras. Second this camera did not have a super macro lens like my Olympus did. However given my financial state at the time and the fact that I had researched literally dozens and dozens of cameras, I always found myself coming back to this GE.
Initially, the look is what drew me to this camera. It's stylish, not too heavy for an SLR camera and fits perfectly in your hands. You can order the camera in white, red or black. I love the white. One main thing I love about this camera is that it does not eat batteries at an alarming rate. The camera came with four double AA batteries of which were still on full power after one month. It's really amazing. Of course you can use rechargeable as well.
Another great feature is the viewfinder. My other two previous cameras did not have this feature which is really important in certain settings. If it weren't for the viewfinder on this camera, I never would have been able to capture The Blue Angels during their air show here in San Francisco.
As I mentioned, this camera has macro but not super macro settings. However, I have noticed that in the regular macro setting on this camera I can still achieve that super macro shot which is much more crisp and clear than what I had with the Olympus. So, it worked out well.
Another great thing about this camera is the auto mode which I normally use for your average, everyday scenery and landscape shots. I am thrilled at the outcome of these shots. They are beautiful in color and very detailed. They are much better than the auto shots I took with the Olympus. I was never completely satisfied with those.
This GE has a multitude of settings and modes of which I am still learning. The zoom lens is just amazing!!! There are shots that I have taken miles away from a subject that came out so detailed it is unbelievable. I can even take a macro with the zoom. There was a shot of a flower I took recently that I could not get close to while in the gardens. I set the camera to a manual mode, using macro and zoomed in. The flower shot looks like I had been inches away.
This camera also has blink detection and smile detection etc... In fact when you are taking a portrait shot or a shot of a group of people, the camera will automatically detect the smiles and take the shot. It also has a panoramic mode that is supposed to be fantastic. I haven't yet, however, tried that setting.
I have also used this camera in very low light conditions. I've used it in nightclubs where I was away from the stage and the photos of the performers came out perfect.
The manuals and websites I had read about this camera prior to buying it stated that the video mode was not in HD. NOT TRUE! I've taken several videos with this camera and the quality is HD. Plus, you can also zoom in and out while shooting a video with this camera.
All in all, so far this camera is doing a fantastic job for me and I am becoming more and more familiar with it's settings each day. It's easy to handle, lightweight enough to fit into a purse and very stylish. I hope it keeps working this great for years to come.Read full review

great camera for the price
I did some research before making this purchase. It's a nice camera with features like a point-and-shoot.If you just look closely at the physical framework of the shell, then compare the menu system to Fuji's of this price, you won't doubt my claim; when you take some pics, you'll know. 'Rebadging', or remarking, is not a new selling strategy. It has been used by the auto industry, electronics industry, and computer software industry, to name a few.
Just check out my pics above, the macros of the Lily and cone flower and the lamp post shots (3, normal, 15x and full zoom). I could get so close with macro that I could practically touch the lens to the objects (with good light), and using full zoom you can see the screw threads of the bolts of the lamp post. The color is incredible.
The battery life is good also. I use cheap rechargeables. The image stabilization was demonstrated by the company at a recent electronics show where they mounted it on a heavily vibrating platform yet it still took a clean, focused shot. It works great.Read full review

Perfect camera for beginning photographers!
Wonderful Camera for beginners who want to get into photography but haven't advanced past the small point and shoot digital cameras.
I have always loved photography but I didn't know a whole lot about cameras. I loved to take pictures but they never came out as good as how I imagined in my head. So I decided to go out on a limb and get a better camera. I didn't want to spend hundreds on a really expensive camera that I didn't know how to operate so I opted for this cheaper version, hoping it would be the link between the two.
It definitely is! It has so many great options that a smaller digital camera wouldn't have. It has 14mp so the shots are much clearer than a small digital camera, and it comes with a CD manual so you can read all about how to work each different option and what they do. It is so helpful when learning photography!
Beginners will LOVE this camera, just as I have! I would like to advance to a more expensive camera in the future, but right now while I am still learning about all the options, this camera is PERFECT for me!
I would definitely recommend to a friend!Read full review
