Taking still llife camera gets a 4 - wildlife or pets 2 stars,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: GE X400-BK 14-Megapixel Camera | Black (Camera)
This camera would get a 2 level review were this possible - depending on how you wish to use the camera the rating would be anywhere from a 2 star to a 4 star rating.
If you want to just take pictures of people and buildings say on a trip - the camera is a good reasonable selection. The camera offers to telephoto options but, the problem is that you have to go all the way to the end of the manual then click the button a second time to get to the digital which will provide the best images using the telephoto option.
If you want a camera for pictures of pets or wildlife - this reviewer would recommend looking for an alternative. This is based on several factors. First the delay for shutter to actual take the picture is 0.9 which even taking pictures of pets results, more often than not, in a blurred image. The second reason for the "other alternative recommendation" is the process of getting to the digital telephoto option.
The camera manufacturer offers only a digital format of the owner's manual - a big negative when trying to work the camera - this reviewer believes if a camera needs almost 90 pages of instructions it would be a huge help to have a printed copy that can be taken with the camera.

Digital zoom is the worst possible way to take pictures.
