GE X5 DSLR Style Digital Camera Review & Test

Thanks! Share it with your friends!

Close

A truly awful camera, if you want my honest opinion. Its automatic white balance leaves quite a bit to be desired whenever photos with the flash enabled are taken; subsequent pictures are a sickly shade of blue and are always overexposed.

Video mode is even worse, wherein the sound of the sluggish and unpredictable autofocus grinding away is clearly audible in the video’s audio.

Did I mention, it had an insatiable hunger for AA batteries that couldn’t be satisfied?

(This video sat uploaded and forgotten for nearly six months. Toward the latter part of the video is talk of the IBM Thinkpad R60 and its short-lived RAM upgrade.

I have this camera. It takes beautiful photos, as long as you're outside or in good lighting. Low light or videos are trash. 😭

I have a Fuji camera, bought new in 2008 for about $350 on newegg. It resembles this camera in many ways, including the use of AA batteries, which I like on that camera. Battery life is really good with high capacity AA rechargeable. The lens is different, but the body, controls and OSD are very much identical except this is white, and mine is black. I showed it off in one of my recent videos about my first Youtube channel which was shot with that camera. This one doesn't have as good of mic, but the video image looks the same.

Looks like a canon powershot knockoff (the ones that look like an dslr but arent)

What an odd camera. To be fair, GE did not manufacture this or have any hand in it's creation. General Imaging is a completely separate company, and licenses the GE brand for their products.

I remember seeing these back in the day at my local SuperStore, seemed interesting, and I had laughed at the sight of it. Cnet had even done their own review of it: http://www.cnet.com/products/ge-x5/ .
