The 8X optical zoom lens in the recently announced GE E1480W digital camera should provide beginning photographers with a versatile option for shooting nature photos.
Few sub-$200 cameras can offer an optical zoom lens as large as the E1480W from General Imaging, which is the digital camera division of GE. The E1480W lens has a 35 mm equivalent of 28mm to 224 mm, giving it a good mix of wide angle and telephoto capabilities.
In addition, the E1480W offers a few other high-end features, including 14.1 megapixels of resolution, a 3.0-inch LCD, and a camera body measuring 1 inch in thickness. With an MSRP of $169.99, the E1480W should be a good value for beginning photographers.
Look for the E1480W to be available for purchase soon in three body colors: Black, red, and silver.
