Very Poor Quality...

Although this camera sports plenty of pixels, options, and features, the overall quality is far below what I would've expected. Images aren't defined and are pretty low-quality for such a high number of megapixels, comparable to a smart-phone camera (1.5 megapixel quality), the flash is too much, and the macro is terrible! Pictures are usually too bright, or too dark, there isn't a happy medium. The brand-new battery hardly holds a charge, and after only about 15 - 20 photos, it died. I only had it for a day before I sent it back. Definitely not worth $60. A Vivitar in the clear packages would probably perform better!

You wouldn't even believe what this little camera can do, and how small it is. It DOES take some time to learn though because it DOES come with so many extra features that aren't even listed. If you look up the GE 500 (black and white# Pro series- This camera does everything that one does and then some.Look up the features to that, This has all those, they just aren't listed. This one even films in HD. The only difference is the zoom isn't 15, its only 8, and this camera is more compact. But it has 20 scene modes; even sketch mode which is super cool, you can see this in action on Amazon.com under the GE 500 and I will try to take some pictures with my camera #THIS MODEL) in most modes and leave them at Amazon for all to view under this model the silver model. It takes amazing pictures but the trick is to hold the trigger button for a fraction of a second and THEN take the photo. It has BLINK tech. It has a "frame" mode that you can send Happy Birthday pics in a pre birthday frame, It even has 4 different song modes for viewing your photos on slideshow. I was amazed when fiddleing with it last night how much it had. I actually dropped this camera in a river when I was walking my dogs and it dried out after 4 days and STILL takes amazing photos! You will not be sorry with this purchase! But trust me....TAKE THE TIME TO LEARN THE FEATURES IT HAS, AND 2. ALWAYS DEPRESS THE "TAKE" BUTTON FOR A FRACTION OF A SECOND TO LET THE CAMERA "CLARIFY" AND.....THEN....TAKE THE PICTURE FOR IT to come out clear.

After ordering this camera online, I expected it to be the usual quality of something in this price line...functional but poorly made. I am VERY pleased to announce how wrong my assumptions were. It's NOT a flimsy plastic camera...it's a soundly made metal camera with serious power (16 megapixels and 8x zoom). PLUS they gave me the carrying case and memory card. The pictures are crisp and clear. Seriously, you CANNOT go wrong with this camera.

Comes with rechargeable lithium battery. More functions than most people would ever use, inexpensive, but not cheap. Quality camera. I like it.

This camera takes great pics! I was very leery when I saw all the stuff this camera has to offer for the price, however the reviews are great! The zoom is awsome on this thing! Compared to some of the other brands that are $100 or more and they have the same options, I could not see spending the extra money. I have a 12yr old kodak easyshare 5.0 megapixel that still works and takes great pics and paid $300 for it. It was just time to update and for the price I couldn't pass it by. The only reason I gave it a 4 star (would have given it a 4.5 it possible) is the that buttons are really small, however the smaller cameras all seem to be like that now.

Here is the gist of my experience. The battery only holds a charge for 10 pictures. When you open the compartment to take the battery out, the storage chip that is stored next to it shifts and erases all the photos. I drove back to Wal-Mart and got a new chip, and I though at first, maybe it was a faulty chip which is what the woman on the 1-800 line at GE suggested (Same thing a 2nd time). Then I thought maybe, I didn't charge it right, so I charged it for 12 hours. Then took 10 pictures and it was dead, open the battery cover and chip pops out. Wal-Mart took it back and gave me my money back.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I have owned several digital cameras. The pictures lack definition for 16 megapixels. They remind me of cameras of about 5 MP. The long zoom adds to the image loss as does low light levels like indoor pictures. The battery runs down very fast, expect to charge it frequently. I get about 20 exposures per charge with no flash. The best feature is the pencil sketch mode. I am keeping this camera because of its small size and ability to set manual exposures ( I can't do manual exposures with the Nikon S series cameras, It also has spot and center weighted metering which the Nikons do not.). It is a good value but expect it to be the quality of a lesser camera. I paid $59 usd. for the black model and got free site to store shipping. It is the best camera for the low budget buyer like me.

This camera is great! It has all sorts of settings, like outdoor and indoor picture taking modes, panoramic option, and many other things I am still getting used to. The zoom is awesome, I have been taking pictures of birds and getting really great quality photos. The only thing I have a hard time with is the battery life, which I was already aware of before I bought the camera based on other reviews. What I've been doing when I take my camera with me is I'll take a couple photos, turn the camera off, then turn it back on to take another photo or two later on. It works better than to leave it on in between shots. I've taken about 20 pictures on this current charge and I've only lost one bar, compared to taking continuous shots you'll only get about 10 pictures per charge. I definitely recommend this camera to any casual photo takers because of the quality of photos, durability of the camera and the wide array of settings.

I've used this camera to get some very good pics of my kids and their animals. Also taken it on a couple of hikes which is why I bought it to begin with so I could get better pics than my cell phone. The photos are good but it seems that the battery does not like the cold. Temps in the minus single digits, battery discharged sooner than expected for a lithium ion. However it does charge back up quickly. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

This camera is about the same size as one of the older cell phones. NOT big, so it fits in a small pocket someplace, or a small purse but and it is loaded with features. The size is critical. Somehow you need to pick up a handle that you can screw into the bottom of the camera which will let your big hands control all that power. At some point, you realize you have to stop and read the instructions slowly, but that is fine.. the instructions are clear. Again.. loaded with features although they are not mandatory so you can use it right of the bat doing point and shoots. Excellent optical zoom and clear photographs. It is an excellent size if you get the handle, and the features will give you just about anything you want. Very good camera at any price.
