10 Reasons For

GE Digital Cameras Have Good Reviews

Compact cameras built by GE have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all cameras (not just compact cameras) and found that GE also has good reviews across its entire range.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on digital cameras of a comparable spec and 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 think you might also be interested in some of the other cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including the Nikon Coolpix 5900 which has better reviews.

SD Compatible Memory Cards

This camera supports an SD|SDHC compatible memory cards, which is typical of many digital cameras of a similar 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.

Digital cameras with a better memory card type that might be worth looking at include the Fujifilm X10 (SD|SDHC|SDXC), the Canon 150 (£109.99) (SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 (£249.99) (SD|SDHC|SDXC) which is also higher rated.

There are a number of other 5.7x digital zoom digital cameras currently available that you might want to consider including the GE A1455 (£26.99) which has better reviews.
