11 Reasons For

GE Digital Cameras Have Good Reviews

On average GE compact camera digital cameras have good ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all digital cameras manufactured by GE.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on cameras of this spec and age. 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 camera and we think because of it's better review score, the GE J1455 is also worth considering.

SD Memory Card

This camera supports an SD|SDHC memory card, which is typical of many digital cameras of a comparable spec and age to it. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

Cameras with a better memory card type that might be worth considering include the Fujifilm FinePix X10 (SD|SDHC|SDXC), the Sony DSC-WX50 (MS Duo|MS PRO Duo|MS Pro-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the Canon PowerShot N100 (SD|SDHC|SDXC) which is also higher rated.

Quite Big Digital Zoom

The smallest digital zoom of compact camera digital cameras that were launched more than two years ago is 1x and the biggest is 810x. With a digital zoom of 5.7 times zoom factor, the GE C1233 has one of the bigger digital zooms amongst similar spec cameras of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 5.7x digital zoom cameras currently available including the GE A1455 which has better reviews.

If you are looking for a camera with a bigger digital zoom then you might also want to look at the Kodak Pixpro FZ151 (£75.99) (6x).

Has an Image Stabiliser

The GE C1233 has an image stabiliser. Most of the other digital cameras that have been around for a comparable time to the C1233 also have an image stabiliser.

We compared all the other digital cameras with an image stabiliser to this digital camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Fujifilm FinePix X10, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS40, and the GE A1455 is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Flash

The GE C1233 has a built-in flash. Most of the other cameras of this spec and age also have a built-in flash.

We compared this digital camera to all the other cameras with a built-in flash and we think the Fujifilm FinePix X10 which has better reviews is also worth considering.
