2 out of 5 stars   Good camera - poor close ups
By inspector (Oklahoma) April 26, 2012
Review submitted for General Electric GE Power Pro X500-BK 16 MP with 15 x Optical Zoom Digital Camera, Black (GEX500BK)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easy To Use, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Cons: Poor Image Quality, Short Battery Life, Poor close up quality
Other Comments: Purchased for work taking close ups of mechanical parts. This camera took great pictures except for close ups. I called technical support and used the settings they told me to but they were still out of focus. I think it was an issue with this one camera, but the battery life was not great either so I sent it back.
