GE X5-BK Final Thoughts

"Really great camera."

Color and white balance is generally good. The GE X5-BK is small and fast. However, while it was still working, it took great pictures and was very easy to use. I started with a NEX-6 and moved up to an GE X5-BK. One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector.

"God bless you Nikon!"

This camera also has the best in camera JPEG processing I've ever seen. In some reviews this Nikon 26296 is said to be heavy. It's got pretty much everything I could want in a GE Point & Shoot Digital Camera. A duck flying by very quickly skimming the water over Lake Washington. The Nikon 26296 is small and fast.

The recommended solution is to send in the camera for cleaning. This camera has so many features for its size. Nikon, however, has always had colors that are exactly as our eyes see it!

Digital Zone Final Thoughts

"Mostly point and shoot."

The zoom and autofocus makes it easy. It's got pretty much everything I could want in a GE Point & Shoot Digital Camera. Overall good camera and value but needs improvements in the hardware. Where this Digital Zone really shines though is the video recording oddly enough. For me the upgrade was worth it as it had things I find extremely useful.
