General Electric X500

 

Sometimes you really do get what you pay for – as this £100 superzoom illustrates all too well.

Inexpensive but well-featured, Flexible 15x optical zoom, Full manual controls

Poor overall performance, Shutter lag and slow AF, Inconsistent metering and poor image quality

General Electric X500

 

The General Electric X500 doesn't excel in performance, but it aces value, packing a big 15x zoom lens into a $150 camera.

Inexpensive. 15x zoom lens. Electronic viewfinder. Pop-up flash. Some manual controls. Simple to use.

Mediocre image quality. Dismal low-light performance. Slow.

GE Power Pro review

 

Editors' note: Several of the design, features, and shooting options are identical between the GE Power Pro X500 and the

The GE Power Pro X500 offers a lot for its low price including a 15x wide-angle zoom lens and semimanual and manual controls.

The X500's shooting performance is really slow and it's not good indoors without a flash and in low-light conditions.

The GE X500 megazoom is a very good value as long as you understand its photo and performance limitations.

We've reviewed a number of superzoom digital camera in the last few months, all with two things in common: They have long zoom lenses, and they're all at least $300. General Electric takes a different tack with the 16-megapixel General Electric X500,...

GE Power Pro X500 Digital Camera

 

While the much less expensive GE Power Pro X500 is technically a high zoom camera, its 15x optical zoom doesn't go nearly as high as competing models. It's also large and heavy, and felt poorly built. You won't be able to take lots of pictures in quick...

Don't walk away from this, RUN!!!!

 

Me being in possession of this camera wasn't really my choice. I got this camera as a Christmas gift many years ago to replace a Sony Cybershot 3.2 megapixel point an shoot that got stolen from me.

In the short term it's a very inexpensive digital camera to take pictures.

You get what you pay for.
