GE Power Pro X500 Reviews

CNET reviews the GE Power Pro X500 and writes;
“At lower ISO sensitivities–ISO 200 and below–you’ll get nice photos with good exposure and bright, vivid, and fairly accurate color. Viewed at full size you’ll see noise, but its pretty unnoticeable at small sizes. Above ISO 200, though, you get more noise, softness, and off colors, making photos only suitable for small prints and Web use.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Gadgetreview reviews the GE Power Pro X500 and writes;
“At the end of the day, the GE Power Pro X500 is a solid camera that packs amazing performance for the price. It’s obviously not going to compete with $1000 SLR cameras, but that’s not what it’s meant to do. While it does have a few failings, for the money it really can’t be beat.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Whatdigitalcamera reviews the GE Power Pro X500 and writes;
“Image sharpness is okay, slightly soft but in most situations viewing or printing images at normal sizes (say 6x4in) it’ll be fine. Try blowing images up to anything larger and the smeared detail becomes quickly obvious. I get the feeling the lens is better than the results as it seems the noise processing might be over eager even at ISO 80.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PCMAG reviews the GE Power Pro X500 and writes;
“The X500’s reason for being is simple: It’s the most zoom you’ll find for $150. It’s not a luxurious camera, and it doesn’t produce the best images, but it’s hard to find a cheaper alternative. You’ll get decent pictures, as long as you’re in good conditions or using the flash.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Trustedreviews reviews the GE Power Pro X500 and writes;
“The front of the camera gets a relatively deep handgrip that’s been ergonomically designed to comfortably accommodate three fingers. On the back you’ll also find a dimpled thumb rest. Overall build quality isn’t bad at all, with the X500 feeling pretty solid in the hand.”
