GE Has Good Reviews for Its Digital Cameras

GE has good average ratings for its compact cameras as well as across its entire camera range compared to other brands.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many digital cameras of a comparable age and type 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 compared this digital camera to all the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor and we think the Sony DSC-W510R[plb_1610607_price] which has better reviews; or the Nikon Coolpix L19[plb_1637108_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.
