GE - J1458W

10 Reasons For

GE Cameras Have Good Reviews

On average GE compact camera digital cameras have good ratings as do all digital cameras manufactured by GE.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many cameras that were released around the same time as 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.

Chart Edit

SD Memory Card

This digital camera supports an SD|SDHC memory card, which is typical of many digital cameras that have been around for more than two years. 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 not good enough for you then you might also want to consider the Fujifilm FinePix X10 (SD|SDHC|SDXC), the Sony DSC-WX50 ($142.97) (MS Duo|MS PRO Duo|MS Pro-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the Canon PowerShot N100 ($349.99) (SD|SDHC|SDXC) which is also higher rated.
