I would recommend this X5 to anyone wanting a camera with the feel of an SLR and the ability to do everything that the SLR's are capable of.

Verified Purchase
Let me begin my saying that I have not purchased a new camera in six years, so I was waaaayyyy behind in technology (I had never purchased an SD card until now, etc.). I had read so much about the user manual to this camera being hard to read, the camera functions being hard to access and use, etc., but, I must say, I found this camera easy to use and the functions were well-explained and documented in the user manual (for Pete's sake, they show the pics and give step-by-step instructions in the manual :-)).

I ordered this camera from Amazon last Friday; it arrived today. We are using it to take on a cruise with us and I wanted something with a decent zoom to be able to take pictures at somewhat of a distance. I also needed to practice using it, so I took it out of the box right away. I looked at the user manual and went to work :-D. I also used the user manual on the enclosed CD. No problem!

Like another poster said, I, too, researched this camera a lot before buying it and I, too, found it comparable to a couple of the Fuji Finepix that I was looking at. I am in no way an expert on cameras (I don't know much about them at all), but, I did go try this one out at Sears prior to purchasing this one from Amazon (Amazon was cheaper). While there, I noticed that they also had the Fuji I was thinking about getting, too, and I tried it. I really do like the way the GE X5 feels in my hands better than the Fuji! And, with my not needing the camera for professional purposes, I just wanted to be able to take decent pics. And, the GE camera seems to be able to do that!

I am soooo excited about this camera. The pics are so clear and sharp! I am having to learn how to focus it, etc., but, so far I have gotten some good clear shots.

I wanted to learn more about photography without breaking the bank since this is an experiment for me I would have hated to invest a ton of money in a camera just to find that the hobby was not for me. I looked at "inexpensive" DSLRs with kit lenses and well as various bridge cameras and even some P&S Canons what I could use the CHDK with to extend the functionality. Ultimately I decided that I wanted a bridge camera because I wanted more control and zoom over what most P&Ss offer but I didn't want to invest a ton of money in lens with a DSLR. I was intialy interested in the Fuji Finepix S2550 but after discovering that it didn't have a real aperture and since part of this was to learn more about digital photography I decided against that line. I ultimately decided on the GE X5 for several reasons.

1) It has a real aperture priority mode

2) It had the ability to do continuous AF

3) It could shoot video with optical zoom and little/no motor noise

4) It could do last 3 burst at full 14MP

5) It has a single press multiple shot smile detect mode which I love to use for family self portraits which with 3 kids the one shot on a set timer just isn't enough for me.

6) The default mode of of the shutter is release priority which when coupled with constant AF means no missed moments while the camera focuses.

7) An AF assist lamp for night photos

8) The story of how General-Imaging came to be with retired execs from Olympus and Minolta getting together to make a new inexpensive camera company got me interested.

These things being said there are a couple things about the camera I wish were different.

I own the GE E1030 10MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom (Silver) and decided I'd like to update mine so I picked the X5. The X5 has all kinds of new features that the old one didn't but the image quality didn't really get any better than the old one. Still the batteries last long(still haven't timed them), the image stabilization is good but I try to avoid using it because it adds more noise to the pictures. The video & audio quality is mediocre at best and I don't know if it's just me or what because when I turn the camera on and move it around, it makes a high pitched sound that the microphone picks up during recording. Still all those problems can be easily fixed during editing, so if you don't mind a little work for a great image then I recommend this camera.

I have been using this camera for about 2 weeks now and I have read the good and bad reviews. I find this camera terrific and a great buy for the price. For all the people who gave this camera a bad review leave me suggest the following that I did.

1. Go to the GE imaging home page for the X5 camera and download and install the latest firmware.

2. Really read the instruction manual

3. Make sure you press the shutter button down halfway and hold it until the camera focuses before you snap the picture.

Updating the firmware made a big difference, and by following the above steps I get consistently great pictures.

You can't beat all the features of this camera for the price!!!
