13 Reasons For

GE Cameras Have Good Reviews

GE compact camera digital cameras have good ratings on average and across all digital cameras GE is one of the better rated manufacturers.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most commonly found sensor type on compact camera digital cameras that have been around for more than two years. 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 camera to all the other cameras that have a CCD sensor and we think because of it's better review score, the Coolpix L120 ($299.50), and the Coolpix L320 ($179.99) both from Nikon is also worth considering.
