Good Brand

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

Chart

Fairly Large Screen Size

At 3 inches, the GE G100 has a fairly large screen size compared to most of the other compact camera digital cameras that were launched more than two years ago. Digital cameras of this type and age have screen sizes of between 1" and 4.8", and the average screen size is 2.8".

We compared all the other 3" screen cameras to this digital camera and we think the Sony DSC-H70[plb_580917_price], the Fujifilm FinePix F660[plb_1409997_price], and the Canon PowerShot S120[plb_1602828_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

SD Memory Card

This digital camera supports an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory card, which is typical of many compact camera digital cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as it. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

We compared all the other cameras that support an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory to this camera and we think the XQ1[pl_1962901_price], and the X100[pl_2173855_price] both from Fujifilm or the Nikon Coolpix S6800[plb_2118627_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If the memory card type of this compact camera camera is too bad for you then you might want to consider the Sony DSC-H70[plb_580917_price] (MS Duo|MS PRO Duo|MS Pro-HG|SD|SDHC|SDXC) which also has a higher rating.

Supports Full HD Video

supports Full HD video

The GE G100 supports Full HD video, unlike most of the other digital cameras that have been available for a similar time to the G100 which do not support Full HD video.

We compared this digital camera to all the other cameras which support Full HD video and we think the DSC-HX60[pl_2166574_price], the DSC-WX220[pl_2165839_price], and the DSC-QX10[pl_2136113_price] all from Sony which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this GE camera digital zoom is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the DSC-WX220[pl_2165839_price] (20x), the DSC-WX350[pl_2163795_price] (40x), or the DSC-HX60[pl_2166574_price] (486x) all from Sony which also has a higher rating.

There are a number of alternative 15x optical zoom cameras currently available that you might want to look at including the Fujifilm FinePix F660[plb_1409997_price] which has better reviews.

If you want a bigger optical zoom then you might want to consider the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ55[plb_2145740_price] (20x), the Sony DSC-WX350[plb_2163795_price] (20x), or the Nikon Coolpix L820[plb_2153075_price] (30x) which also has a higher rating.

Has an Image Stabiliser

The GE G100 has an image stabiliser. Most of the other cameras of a comparable spec and age to the G100 also have an image stabiliser.

We compared all the other cameras with an image stabiliser to this digital camera and we think because of it's better review score, the DSC-HX60[pl_2166574_price], the DSC-WX220[pl_2165839_price], and the DSC-QX10[pl_2136113_price] all from Sony is also worth considering.
