The convenience of a built‐in, flip‐out USB plug in the GE J1470S makes sharing and charging easier than every before.

Eliminating the need for USB cables and adapters makes accessories a thing of the past. The GE J1470S also offers an impressive 14 megapixels of resolution, a powerful 7X optical zoom lens to bring you closer to the action, the ability to capture HD video with 720p resolution, Pan‐Capture Panorama for seamless wide angle shots, and a large 3.0‐inch LCD screen.
