GE - G3WP

12 Reasons For

Average Expert Reviews

This camera has an average expert rating of 71 out of 100 based on five expert reviews from sites including askmen.com, bestofmicro.com, erenumerique.fr and testnumerique.fr.

Good Technical Features

One person reckoned that this digital camera had good features. Two years ago expert website Uk.askmen.com mentioned “The GE G3WP has some very attractive features”.

Robust

One GE G3WP owner mentioned in their reviews that this digital camera was good at resisting water ingress. Uk.askmen.com rated it 72 out of 100 and mentioned “The entire body of the camera is water resistant for up to 10 feet, making it perfect for swimming, kayaking”.

GE Has Good Reviews for Its Digital Cameras

We calculated the average ratings for all GE cameras and also specifically for GE compact camera digital cameras and found that in both cases GE had good ratings.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many comparable spec digital cameras that have been around for a similar 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.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including the Nikon Coolpix L120[plb_1186_price], the GE J1458W[plb_1861982_price], or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS40[plb_1786919_price] which has better reviews.

SD Memory Card

This camera supports an SD|SDHC memory card, which is typical of many digital cameras of a similar spec and 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 compact camera digital camera is too bad for you then you might want to look at the Nikon Coolpix L120[plb_1186_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC), the Sony DSC-WX220[plb_2165839_price] (MicroSD (TransFlash)|MicroSDHC|MicroSDXC|MS Duo|MS Micro (M2)|MS PRO Duo|MS PRO Duo HS|MS Pro-HG Duo|MS XC-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the Canon PowerShot N100[plb_2118439_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC) which is also higher rated.

Has an Image Stabiliser

The GE G3WP has an image stabiliser. Most of the other cameras of a similar type and age to the G3WP also have an image stabiliser.

We compared all the other cameras with an image stabiliser to this digital camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Lumix DMC-FS40[pl_1786919_price], and the Lumix DMC-TZ36[pl_1725803_price] both from Panasonic or the Nikon Coolpix L120[plb_1186_price] is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

21 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Flash

The GE G3WP does not have a built-in flash, unlike most of the other cameras of this age and type which have a built-in flash.

We compared this digital camera to all the other cameras with a built-in flash and we think the Nikon Coolpix L120[plb_1186_price], the SeaLife DC1400 Pro Video[plb_1829794_price], or the Fujifilm FinePix AX600[plb_1735654_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
