Poor Image Quality

Three customers who reviewed it agreed that it was not good quality. Website Avhub.com.au mentioned three years ago “Poor image quality”. Five years ago Ephotozine.com wrote on expert website Ephotozine “Sadly image quality isn't fantastic and is slow in use, taking a while to switch on” but in spite of that they gave it a rating of 70 out of 100. Expert website Pcmag.com said also five years ago “Its image quality is poor”.

Display

Average Display Diagonal

At 3 inches, the GE G100 has a pretty average display diagonal compared to most of the other medium megapixel cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as this digital camera.

There are a number of alternative 3" screen cameras currently available which you might want to consider including because of their better review scores, the Sony SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, the Samsung 72, or the Olympus OM-D E-M5 (£549).

If this camera display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to consider the D4 (£4,225) (3.2" and higher rated), or the D4S (£3,379.99) (3.2" and higher rated) both from Nikon or the Leica T (£359) (3.7" and higher rated).

Fairly Big Digital Zoom

With a digital zoom of 6 times zoom factor, the GE G100 has one of the bigger digital zooms amongst medium megapixel cameras of this age. The digital zooms of digital cameras that came out more than two years ago range from 1x to 120x, and the average digital zoom is 6.6x.

We compared this camera to all the other 6x digital zoom digital cameras and we think the GE C1433 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a bigger digital zoom then you might want to look at the FinePix JV500 (6.3x and higher rated), or the FinePix SL 300 (6.7x and higher rated) both from Fujifilm.

Average Optical Zoom

At 15 times zoom factor, the GE G100 has a fairly average optical zoom compared to most of the other digital cameras of a comparable age and spec to this camera.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 15x optical zoom digital cameras currently available including the Fujifilm F660EXR (£181), or the GE X5 (£55) which both of have better reviews.

If this camera optical zoom is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Vivitar ViviCam S1527 (18x and higher rated), the Samsung 200F (18x and higher rated), or the Canon PowerShot SX600 HS (£159.99) (18x and higher rated).
