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 did quite a bit of research before making this purchase ($130 at Walmart). It's a 'bridge' camera with features like a point-and-shoot, but the body style of a SLR. There aren't many reviews around or sample pics, probably due to the relative inexpensiveness of this camera, and the lack of a puffy, brand name. But if you just look closely at the physical framework of the shell, then compare the menu system to Fuji's of this caliber (download their manuals), you won't doubt my claim; when you take some pics, you'll know. 'Rebadging', or remarking, is not a new selling strategy. It has been used by the auto industry, electronics industry, and computer software industry, to name a few.
Just check out my pics above, the macros of the Lily and cone flower (2 pics ea. with a 1:1 of each to compensate for Amazon's limited picture quality) and the lamp post shots (3, normal, 15x and full zoom). I could get so close with macro that I could practically touch the lens to the objects (with good light), and using full zoom you can see the screw threads of the bolts of the lamp post. This has been on QVC a few times for $169 (retail, $270), and they always claim to sell over 500 in less than an hour. The color is incredible. I compared it with a Panasonic DMC-TZ3 at comparable zoom and dpi (8MP), and the color and clarity were significantly improved. The TZ3 is $160 'Used' on Amazon.
I don't know how some of these reviewers can mark this camera down unless they work for a competitor, or they just don't know how to use one (really, no manual zoom? lol). The battery life is good also. I use cheap rechargeables. The image stabilization was demonstrated by the company at a recent electronics show where they mounted it on a heavily vibrating platform yet it still took a clean, focused shot.
