Functionality, price, performance...It's all here in this package! Novice photographers won't be overwhelmed by the features on this camera package and those with a bit more "savy" won't feel like they are working "cheap". This unit feels good and comfortable in the hand and the optics are really nice. The results are photos you'll be proud to share.

I'm no expert, but this camera is sweet! It has all kinds of whistles and bells, including adjustable shutter speed and light settings. It's definitely produces high quality pictures, and with the set, you will be sure you have everything you need to run the camera and take it with you where you need to go. I was checking around in my local stores for a camera similar to this with the same features, and you can't touch any of them for this price.

Bought this for my wife as a christmas gift and she loves it. The only thing that i have a complaint about is that it didn't come with the instructional manual. But no worries, I found it online. So hopefully i will be taking better photos once we figure it out.

I know people who have spent thousands on cameras and extra equipment and I believe it to be non sense. I got this package and it has all the features the cannon and Nikon cameras do with the exception of the hot shoe for the detachable flash. I am a photographer, I do wedding's, family portraits, on location shoots etc. And this camera can stand up to any high priced camera any day of the week. I did have to purchase a pop up flash defuser from B&H Photo to tame the bright flash but I have nothing bad to say. GE did great when they made this camera.

This is a very good camera for the price. Everything in the bundle works great and is very useful.
Pros:
- takes great photos
-lots of scene settings
-nice feel, easy to hold
-large LCD screen

Cons:
-when you zoom really far, it becomes a little grainy
-when you are trying to take up-close, or zoomed in pics it can be very hard to focus the camera
-the video quality is fine, however the microphone barely picks up any noise. For example, I took a video of my brother and he was 3-4 ft. away and you could barely hear him on the video. ( However for me, this is not really a big deal because I bought the camera for pics)
-4 AA batteries

This has got to be one of the best hidden values around. This camera has some of the best pictures i've seen. There's about 400 options once you get it up and running, have no clue what the hell i'm doing, but if you find the active or automatic setting, and make sure the flash is up no matter what (obviously not outside looking at the sun, for example), you will be amazed.
Bought this as my fiance's x-mas gift, and was a hit. To give you an idea, a guy I work with took the same route and bought his wife a camera for x-mas. The only difference between our 16mp cameras is that his lenses come off, has complete manual override, etc. (SLR camera vs. my SLR-esque camera). Oh, and by the way, his camera costs $1200 and came with classes for instruction on how to use the thing. To date, his wife only has used it in the classes. And to date, i've made a house payment, bought the camera, and took a vacation with the camera for the same money. Think about it.

handy all in one purchase as gift for my wife. She wanted to learn about SLR photography. I feel that I still shoot better pictures w/ a point and shoot camera.

I did my research before buying the amazing GE X-500 16mp-It is so very easy to use, just click the shutter. Video was just as easy and great quality. The camera does it all. The kit included 4 batteries that recharge at home or in the car-useful.Great little tripod, 8g, case fits all items just right. You'll have to spend much more to equal this product.
