General Imaging (http://www.general-imaging.com/us/) is unveiling four new cameras, including new additions to the GE brand's Power Series and Smart Series.
The GE E1486TW and E1480W are the latest additions to the Power Series. Both the E1486TW and E1480W sport the ability to film high-definition movies, 14-megapixel resolution, an 8X optical zoom and a 3-inch LCD screen. At only .83 inches thick, the cameras offer one of the slimmest 8X optical zoom performance in the market, says Paul Meyhoefer, General Imaging's vice president of Marketing and Product Planning.
Both the E1486TW and E1480W offer OIS image stabilization and a 28-mm angle glass lens. In addition, the E1486TW offers a touch screen control. A swipe of your finger lets you scroll through recent shots and swipe the screen to zoom photos. The E1486TW and E1480W are priced at US$179.99 and $149.99, respectively. They will ship this spring, and are available in black, red and silver among other colors.
The GE line continues to build upon the legacy of the Smart Series. The GE A1255 and GE A1455 each offer 5X optical zoom and a 2.7-inch LCD screen. The GE A1255features 12 megapixels of resolution and costs US $89.99. For the everyday photographer who seeks even greater high-resolution detail, the GE A1455 offers 14 megapixels of resolution and costs $99.99. Both cameras will ship this spring, and are available in a variety of colors including black, silver and red.
Features standard in all 2010 GE digital cameras include: Pan-Capture Panorama for wide-angle shots; Auto Scene Detection; Blink, Smile and Face Detection; Image Stabilization; and In-Camera Red-Eye Removal.
