My GE A1250 review shows a point and shoot digital camera that is aimed at beginning photographers. This General Electric/General Imaging camera also looks like a basic model, with a small LCD...

Low price makes 1250 a great value
Very fast response times
Very easy to use
LCD brightness can be controlled manually
Image colors and quality is pretty good
Camera is a little heavy and thick
LCD could be bigger
Focus seems just a little soft
Printed user guide could use more detail
