The GE C1233 does not support Full HD video, unlike most of the other low megapixel digital cameras that have been on the market for more than two years which support Full HD video.

We compared all the other cameras which also support Full HD video to this camera and we think the Canon SX220 HS which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
