Two New GE Cameras Offer Low Price

Date: 2009-11-04’s Guide to Digital Cameras 

General Imaging, the digital camera division of GE, recently released a pair of new consumer-level digital cameras, the J1050 and the J1250.

The J1050 (pictured here) is a 10.1-megapixel camera and costs about $130. (Compare Prices)

Those selecting the J1250 will receive a little more resolution at 12.2 megapixels, while carrying a price tag of about $150.

Both cameras measure about 0.8 inches in thickness, offer a 2.7-inch LCD, and feature a 5X optical zoom lens. Both cameras also are available in four colors: Pink, red, black, and silver.

Don't dismiss these GE cameras because of their low prices; I had a chance to review the GE A1250 recently, and I found a very strong camera for beginning photographers at a low price. I'll be reviewing the J1250 soon, to see whether it can match the A1250.
