14 Reasons For

Good Quality Pictures

Four GE G5WP reviewers wrote in their reviews that the GE G5WP was able to produce good images. Bys wrote on Amazon six years ago “Small, takes pictures, easy, easy directions, easy upload to computer” in their review. Kyle said five years ago “Great kids camera or first-time camera for the average user, not the best for budding photographer or needing great long lasting pictures” in his review and scored the product 80 out of 100.

One customer who purchased it considered that it was able to produce clear pictures. Kyle said in his review of this digital camera on Amazon five years ago “At 12.2 megaPixels a 3"x5" should have awesome detail and clarity.”.

GE Has Good Reviews for Its Cameras

GE compact camera digital cameras have good reviews on average and across all cameras GE is one of the superior manufacturers.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many cameras of this spec and age. 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 other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including cheaper digital cameras such as the Nikon Coolpix L19[plb_1637108_price].

SD Memory Card

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

If you would prefer a camera with a better memory card type then you might want to consider the Nikon Coolpix L19[plb_1637108_price] (sd,sdhc) which is also cheaper.

Has an Image Stabiliser

Like most of the other digital cameras of a similar age and spec to the G5WP, the GE G5WP has an image stabiliser.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative cameras with an image stabiliser currently available including because of it's better review score, the Polaroid IS426[plb_2957338_price].

Has a Built-In Flash
