GE C1033 10MP Digital Camera with 3X Optical Zoom and 2.4 Inch LCD with Auto Brightness Quick Review
GE - C1033

13 Reasons For

GE Has Good Reviews for Its Cameras

Compact camera digital cameras produced by GE have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all cameras (not just compact camera digital cameras) and found that GE also has good ratings across its entire range.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many compact camera digital cameras that have been around for a comparable time 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 alternative digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including because of it's better review score, the Coolpix L120[pl_1186_price], or the Coolpix L320[pl_1939468_price] both from Nikon.
