Well I think some people are idiots. This is a good deal, and why it is minus idont know. I have read some very good reviews upon this camera. Heat for me. £67 for 15x, You muppets show me where you get that, not even a refurb!!! Good find!
Very similar specs to the Fuji S1x00/2x00 series.
Don't forget topcashback (£1.13) tracked already

where are the good reviews ??
There is a reason it is this cheap,you be better of splashing out a bit extra for something like the finepix L110, a friend of mine had this and I tried it, totally hated it

Edit:- Finepix L110 is a Nikon camera

Is it not double the price though.

Is it not double the price though.



Around the £115 mark I think now, not looked at prices of it for ages as am saving for a SLR, but personaly would rather pay the extra for a decent camera than blow £67 on a cheap horrible camera,
I would say to anyone buying a camera though,first go into stores and handle and feel the cameras before you just buy them on websites because they are cheap
The specs etc on the OP camera are decent for entry level,just did not like the feel and operation of the camera itself,that is what let me down

Well the newer L120 (L110 is discontinued...) is on offer at Argos for £120 so perhaps a option for some. but its nearly double the money as opposed to a little extra. For those wanting a Super Zoom it seems decent offerings,

I have Fuji Finepix which looks identical, wouldn't surprise me if they are rebadged, my bridge camera is spot on entry level camera, my mother in law as a DSLR, no comparison, but of course budget dictates, I think and I am no specialist or guru but this will be great for my parents, they love my Fuji, they are easily satisfied.

Yes it does in the description and the associated pictures.
In the main picture the model shown does not have a viewfinder.
The GE rep I was quoting is on GE Cameras Facebook page if anyone wants to ask them.

Good spot, but the first two pictures on ADSA site show the model number on the top and you can see the viewfinder, the last image does not show a viewfinder but also does not show any model information.

Not voted either way but i ll guarantee one thing..........its cheap and will be very nasty.
good price regardless of make
dont know if it helps anyone - but for the x500 version have a look at:

http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/round-ups/538836/best-bridge-cameras-2012

which gives info on the GE X500 version...scroll down the page and you will find it. if it helps one person then all well and good!
Going to collect mine from store, was available yesterday but had no chance. Quick service, will report back with some further information.
Seems reasonable for the money - the only thing that annoys me is that when you go on their website (General Imaging - under the General Electric Brand) they dont even list this model!

Sent mine back, crap item. I would write more information about it but I don't want to waste anymore of my time.

It's a good camera your right some people are muppets it is not cheap or horrible at all as someone else said, it take crisp pictures and the zoom is fantastic, it is made by one of the worlds largest companys GE (General Electric) and out performs many cameras 3 to 4 times this price! I love mine its all i need.
Seen a pile of these in Asda today at £50
just bought 1 from asda and paid £39 good value for that i think
This is a really good buy, i got mine on the sale for £49.99
I just scored one of these yesterday for £39!! How can Asda sell this so low I don't know..
