11 Reasons For

Good Brand

GE compact camera digital cameras have good reviews 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 typical of many similar spec cameras that are a comparable 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.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including the GE J1455[plb_1773004_price] which has better reviews.

SD Memory Card

This camera supports an SD|SDHC memory card, which is typical of many cameras that are a comparable age to it. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

If the memory card type of this camera is too bad for you then you might want to look at the Fujifilm FinePix X10[plb_1150_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC and higher rated), the Sony DSC-WX50[plb_2154757_price] (MS Duo|MS PRO Duo|MS Pro-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC and higher rated), or the Canon PowerShot N100[plb_2118439_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC and higher rated).
