GE - G3WP

9 Reasons For

Average Expert Reviews

On average, based on five expert reviews from sites including askmen.com, bestofmicro.com, erenumerique.fr and testnumerique.fr the average expert rating of this GE camera is 71%.

Good Technical Features

One person reckoned that this digital camera had good features. Two years ago expert website Uk.askmen.com mentioned “The GE G3WP has some very attractive features”.

Robust

One GE G3WP owner mentioned in their reviews that this digital camera was good at resisting water ingress. Uk.askmen.com rated it 72 out of 100 and mentioned “The entire body of the camera is water resistant for up to 10 feet, making it perfect for swimming, kayaking”.

GE Has Good Digital Camera Reviews

GE is one of the superior camera brands according to average expert and user reviews, and GE also has good reviews for its compact camera digital cameras.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most commonly found sensor type on compact camera digital cameras that were released more than two years ago. 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.

Alternative digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available that you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Samsung ST90, or the GE J1455.

SD Memory Card

This digital camera supports an SD|SDHC memory card, which is typical of many cameras of this type and age. 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 memory to this camera and we think because of it's better review score, the GE J1458W is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a camera with a better memory card type then you might want to look at the Fujifilm FinePix X10 (SD|SDHC|SDXC and higher rated), the Sony DSC-WX50 (MS Duo|MS PRO Duo|MS Pro-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC and higher rated), or the Canon PowerShot SX600 HS (£99.00) (SD|SDHC|SDXC and higher rated).

Has an Image Stabiliser

The GE G3WP has an image stabiliser, as do most of the other digital cameras of a comparable age and type to the G3WP.

We compared this digital camera to all the other cameras with an image stabiliser and we think the Fujifilm FinePix X10, the GE J1455, and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ36 which has better reviews is also worth considering.
