GE X5

 

This affordable bridge camera promises a lot but does it deliver?

Don’t be lured in by the long list of advanced features this camera has. Image quality is more important and, in this respect, the X5 doesn't deliver.

GE X5 Super Zoom Digital Camera Review

 

GE enters the superzoom market with a 15x reach and a 14Mp resolution, all packed up in a bridge-style camera for under £130.

15x optical zoom; 14.1Mp resolution; Good grip; Excellent build quality; Wide angle lens

GE X5 review

 

Reviewing budget cameras is tricky. Add in a brand name that is synonymous with another product category like light bulbs and appliances and taking the camera seriously is even more difficult. Such is the case with the GE X5.

The GE X5 offers a lot for its low price, including a 15x wide-angle zoom lens and semimanual and manual controls.

The X5's shooting performance is really slow, and it's not good indoors without a flash and in low-light conditions.

The GE X5 megazoom is a very good value, as long as you understand its photo and performance limitations.

Great Bridge Camera

An excellent purchase

 

This is a remarkkable camera for the money, its capabilities are endless. For very bright weather the viewfinder is great. I couldn't imagine you could get so much technology for the price, which also included a FREE carry case. The batteries are very...

Fantastic camera for the price

 

I have had a few camera's and for the price this is by far the best quality, there is a little more shake when you are at full zoom however with a steady hand this isn't a problem

Great wee camera

 

Had this about a week now and I am finding it very good for the money. The optical zoom is great and features are good although the menu system could be better.
