A1255 Will Offer Great Value
Imaging, the digital camera division of GE, made quite a splash in 2009, offering
what I thought was the year's best budget-priced camera in the GE A1250. It
will be interesting to see whether the recently announced A1255 camera from GE
can follow in the A1250's footsteps.
A1255 certainly carries the type of MSRP ($149.99) that will appeal to
beginning photographers. (Initial reports listed the A1255 at under $100, so it
will be interesting to see what the "real world" price is when the
A1255 is available for purchase.)
A1255 will offer 12 megapixels of resolution, a 2.7-inch LCD, and a 5X optical
zoom lens. General Imaging has not set an exact date for the release of the
A1255, other than to say it will appear in the spring. Look for the A1255 in
black (shown here), red, and silver.
