This camera is an awesome value for the money! Once you get it set up and learn the basic operation, (READ the freakin' instructions!) the X500 is a dream to use. It beats any 'point-and-shoot' model in almost any comparison, plus there are enough advanced features to make most any semi-professional shutterbug do cartwheels. It uses 4 standard 'AA' batteries; battery drain is fairly high so I recommend alkalines or 2 sets of high capacity rechargeables. The camera uses the now almost universal SDHC memory cards, up to 16 Gigabyte capacity. The only drawback I've found so far is the big white "GE" logo on the front, since GE products have left a poor impression on me in the past; but I fixed THAT with a little black nail polish! I bought mine in early September for $50 used, but since then the average NEW price has dropped from $150 to about $80!

I bought this camera because I was going on a cruise and I wanted something better than my point and shoot but I didn't want to carry around my DSLR and I love this camera. I have used a lot of point and shoot and even DSLR cameras. This is a fantastic balance between the two. It is very light weight and the picture quality is far superior to any other point and shoot I have ever used. The only two issues I have is when you use the zoom and the lens is extended out it makes a weird noise. Once you bring it back in though the noise is gone. The second issue is you have to flip up the flash to use it. It is minor and once you get used to it, it really isn't a big deal but it does take a little getting used to. It is weird that when you upload it doubles the pictures but that is not a big deal. It has a lot of manual settings if, like me, you like to have control over things. I am in love with the panoramic setting and for beach scenes and sunsets it looks so amazing. I would recommend this camera to anyone is looking for a perfect balance.

EXCELLENT CAMERA BUT IT WILL SURPRISE YOU IF YOU TRANSFER TO CD

 | No, I would not recommend this product.

I GAVE A REVIEW EARLIER BEFOR I TOOK PICTURES AT MY COUSINS WEDDING. GREAT PICTURES AND EASY TO USE BUT IF YOU ARE GOING TO PUT YOUR PHOTOS INTO A PROGRAM TO MAKE A DVD OF THE PICS THERE IS A SURPRISE IN STORE! WHEN YOU TRANSFER THE PICS OVER IT SENDS 2 OF EACH PICTURE, ONE IN JPEG FORMAT AND ONE IN THM FORMAT. YOU HAVE TO INDIVIDUALLY DELETE ALL THE THM FILES. THEN YOU HAVE ANOTHER GLITCH BY GE. EVERY PICTURE COMES OVER WITH THE FILE NUMBER UNDER IT AND IT IS ATTACHED AS A CAPTION AND WILL BE SEEN ON YOUR DVD RECORDING. YOU HAVE TO NOW INDIVIDUALLY DELETE ALL THE CAPTIONS ON EACH PICTURE AND THEN YOU ARE READY TO MAKE YOUR CD OR DVD. THE CAMERA ACCORDING TO GE HAS THIS BUILT-IN AND IT CANNOT BE CHANGED.

After much consideration, I decided to buy this camera as a replacement to a Kodak that was lost by a family member. The value for the price was a distinct draw. Two of the requirements, that of an actual viewfinder, and close focus, were well represented. My husband is a hobby jeweler and takes pictures of small projects in great detail. Another plus was the green nature of GE in the first place. The only thing I find a problem with is the size of the camera, which is smaller than our other one. It is difficult to use both hands to take a picture. Works well on a tripod. This camera has many of the bells and whistles without the high price, and is well worth the purchase.

I have to say I was skeptical when I read the description - then very pleasantly surprised when I got the camera: I love the ease of use and the flexibility for manual settings for shutter and/or aperture. The wide variety of features available are outstanding, and the quality of images I've gotten are outstanding. I've paid much more for cameras with far fewer features! I'm completely satisfied with my purchase and have recommended it to others (one - my boss - bought one and he's happy too!
