Name of product:GE X400
Approximate date of purchase:April 2012
I just bought this camera, and so I'm not completely used to it yet and I'm just learning what all the settings are for but this camera rocks! I love it!! The pictures I take for the most part are crystal clear. And the ones that are not are my own fault, because I have not learned all the settings yet. I took a picture of the moon and you can actually see it. With my old camera I couldn't even see it as a tiny dot. I love the macro. I have take pictures of flowers from about a half an inch away and they are clear and beautiful. I've also taken pictures of things and people while zooming in on them and they also come out clear if I have a steady grip on the camera. I took pictures of a light house and I was about two blocks away. I'm having trouble with action shots but Im sure I will learn soon. I try to test the camera out every day. The only thing I don't like is if you take a movie over a certain amount of minutes when you upload it to a computer it plays fine for about a minute or so and then it skips, gets distorted and won't play correctly. So for movies I would not recommend it. Better to get a digital movie camera. All in all I would say this camera is very good for the price I paid, which I got at Wal-Mart. I saw it online at the Walmart website and it was 158.00. I got it at the actual store for $113. I also bought the extended warranty. 5 star camera!
Takes beautiful macros
Take clear zooms (even the moon)
Has a ton of settings (that I have not learned completely as of yet)
Feels like a professional camera because it's heavy and made of metal
Sounds like a professional camera when you snap the picture
Video camera not very good. Only takes a minute or two and then after that it skips and is shaky and distorted.
