  • A. It uses AA batteries. It comes with standard AA's. If you have your own rechargeable AA's, it uses them very well. The set of 4 rechargeable AA's will average about 500 pictures between charges. So, Separate rechargeable AA's is a good possibility. It is an extra cost item and not included.

  • A. While it does not recommend rechargeables, the batteries that come with the camera are fine. I am surprised to see the charge go down after getting acquainted with the camera, taking pictures and downloading them to the computer by the cord, but after it is turned off for another use the next dayand turned back on it seems the battery has rejuvenated itself. That is my experience after working with the camera for three days.

had more features than I was expecting like the fish eye lens and smile detection. picture quality could be better. I was impressed with the quality of pics zoomed in on all the way. I've taken over 300 photos and the batteries that came with it are still showing at full charge. The pic I've posted of the buzzard was zoomed in on almost all the way at 15x

Worst camera I have ever owned; I have owned many. Even some cheaper cameras have better image definition. The camera is too slow at focusing and focus is never sharp. I would not recommend this camera to anyone. In the sample image below, one can see soft focus overall but the bug just a few millimeters to the right is fuzzy.

the auto setting on this camera is really very good. it has lots of other settings as well scene settings to choose exactly what kind of picture your going to take. I.E. mountain view, macro flower shot, sun set, in door party, out door party, lots of things, and there is a noticeable difference between the settings. I do wish the owners manual was better. it doesn't explain the aperture priority and shutter priority settings very well. or I just wasn't reading it clearly. 1 button for play back 1 button for switching between site and lcd screen. very easy to use. a little heavy for its size but not ridiculous. comes with a shoulder strap for easy carrying. unless your shaq youll probably have to trim the tassels off the strap after adjusting it to fit you. its quite long. over all fantastic camera for a fair price. it hold 3 pictures in the "on board memory" so a 16gb card should do u dandy. that's about 2000 pictures on the highest quality setting.

I was looking for a upgrade from the standrd point and shoot camera that I was used to . I saw this oneb didn my research on many sites and decided this was the camera for me . Turns out Imade the right choice . Normally I would run the other way from ANY product with the GE name on it< but in this case I am sure glad I didn't . Camera is small but packs a punch . Many mnay different settings makes for better pictures according to time of day indoor vs out door fast action shots and so on . Basiclly you get really nice camera for the price of a newbie point and soot camera . So far the only thing I don't like is how easily the lens cap falls off on its own . It's way to lose . Camera runs on 4 double A batteries INCLUDED and doesn't drainn them to fast . Bottom line if you can read and want to get a great camera for a decent price grab this one .

I am taking a course in photography. My first digital camera -an inexpensive yet dependable DXG 5.1 megapixel- got me started but cannot carry me through the course in demonstrating the techniques I need to learn. This is a perfect second digital camera for me. This GE is smaller than I expected, but I like that. My previous one was small also and I was used to it. The GE x550 is not intimidating at all. It is very comfortable. I just have to get accustomed to it being a little heavier than my DXG. All in all, I got more camera than I expected for the price. I am not disappointed and am even more excited about my classes because I have worthy equipment. Hope I do well!

I was worried that I would not have the opportunity to express my feelings on my new camera. I was so looking forward to my first zoom lens camera and with the price, quality and the written reviews I felt sure that I had made the correct choice. My first grandchild turned one recently and it was important that the pictures were great but with my old camera they did not turn out good at all so this camera was really important to me. I had ordered it and was so happy when it arrived a week earlier than expected, well my happiness lasted all of maybe 5 minutes. When I tried the camera I realized that the on off button was broken, yes broken. I took it to the nearest Wal mart and returned it. I will never again order from wal mart over the net, if I cannot see it, hold it in my hands or try it out I will not purchase it. This is the second time I have been burned with electronics by wal mart with internet purchases and I guarantee there will not be a third. I will truly be surprised if this is printed.

This camera is a great low budget choice. I know of no other camera at this price level that even comes close. View finder, 15x optical, and manual mode often cost 3 times this price or more. This 16 megapixel resolution is just wonderful. I never thought I would care for the smile feature, but now I love it. This camera has some issues: It has disappointing video, not HD and bad sound. If your emphasis is video you definitely want a different camera. The camera is slow. Frankly, thats OK. It is important to let the camera set the pace and not try to force your rhythms on the camera. If you let it settle on the focus and squeeze the shutter gently, it does a fine job. The zoom range is impressive. If you can actually hold the camera on target at 15x zoom, you are a better photographer than me. I had no issues with extreme zooms using a tripod or monopod. The HDR and panoramic features worked fine. Scene selection looked good to me. The macro is happier at wide angle than telephoto settings, which isn't a big problem. Manual control seems fine. It beyond my current abilities, so I don't know of any shortcomings except my own. The lens has a pronounced barrel distortion especially at wide angle settings. I take a lot of architectural detail photos so this is an issue for me. The distortion can be fixed with photoshop or gimp. In the end, a great value with impressive features. The camera performs well as a point and shoot and can do really good images if you work with it.

I was very surprised at the ease of use and the quality of the pictures. It was very easy to set up and took excellent pictures right out of the box. The pictures are better then the Cannon I have and I paid $400.00 for that. I highly recommend this camera to anyone.
