GE X5 Ultra Zoom
ePhotoZine has reviewed the new GE X5 Ultra Zoom – the camera is available for only £112 – the budget camera features a wide-angle 15x optical zoom lens (27-405mm equivalent), 14.1 megapixel sensor, 2.7″ screen, electronic viewfinder, optical image stabilisation (CCD-shift type), face detection, ISO3200, Pan-Capture Panorama, High Dynamic Range mode, auto-scene detection, manual (P, A,S,M) modes, 5cm macro mode, pop-up flash, VGA video recording with sound at 30fps, and the camera takes 4 AA batteries, and SD/SDHC memory cards. The camera is available in black or storm trooper white (depending on location – we had a look at the white GE X5 at Photokina 2010).

“The build quality is excellent for this price point and there’s a really solid grip that’s easy to hold. The dial on the top of the camera is big and chunky and the zoom rocker is prominent. There are some issues with the Electronic View Finder because it doesn’t keep up when focusing and firing and it also doesn’t display any shooting information.”
