GE C1033 10MP Digital Camera with 3X Optical Zoom and 2.4 Inch LCD with Auto Brightness Quick Review
GE - C1033

11 Reasons For

GE Has Good Reviews for Its Digital Cameras

GE is one of the better rated digital camera brands according to average reviews from experts and owners, and GE also has good reviews for its compact camera digital cameras.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many digital cameras that are a comparable age to it. CCD sensors produce high quality, low-noise images but consume a lot more power than CMOS sensors. CCD is the most common image sensor type used in digital cameras.

We compared all the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor to this digital camera and we think the GE J1455[plb_1773004_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

SD Memory Card

This camera supports an SD|SDHC memory card, which is the most commonly supported memory card on digital cameras that have been available for more than two years. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

If you want a camera with a better memory card type then you might also want to look at the Fujifilm FinePix X10[plb_1150_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC), the Sony DSC-WX50[plb_2154757_price] (MS Duo|MS PRO Duo|MS Pro-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the Canon PowerShot N100[plb_2118439_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC) which is also higher rated.
