GE unveils 8 new digital cameras


The details have spilled on the GE cameras we caught in summary a few weeks ago. The four series of shooters amounts to no less than eight new digital cameras -- a bellysmack as opposed to a toe-dip entry into the chilly waters of the digital camera market. All the new cams feature face tracking technology, red-eye removal, electronic image stabilization, at least an ISO 1600 sensitivity, and the ability to stitch your panoramic shots together. The top end X "series" of cameras is limited to a single camera, the X1. It packs an 8 megapixel sensor, 12x optical zoom, 2.5-inch LCD, and is the only camera of the lot to feature optical image stabilization. Likewise, the G series consists of the lonely G1 (pictured) offering a 7 megapixel sensor, 3x optical zoom, and 2.5-inch LCD squeezed into a slimster package in a variety of colors. The mid-priced E series brings four-to-the-store: the 8 megapixel E850, the 10 megapixel E1030 and E1040, and 12 megapixel E1240. Most pack a 3-inch LCD and 3200 ISO sensitivity with a 5x optical zoom tucked away inside the E850. Bringing up the budget tail is the A series pair of cams: the A730 and A830 offering 7 and 8 megapixel sensors, respectively with a shared 3x zoom and 2.5-inch LCD. All the cams will hit North America in May priced in the range of $150 to $429 -- the G1 should demand about $189 while the uppity X1 will ask about $429.
