GE A1050 Digital Camera

As many of my reader know I love taking photos. When taking photographs it helps to have a good camera. Until recently I was unaware of how many great portable digital cameras GE had to offer.

I was given the exciting opportunity to review the NEW GE A1050 in silver. When it arrived, it came with everything I needed to get started taking great photos!


Box included :
  • Camera
  • Battery (AA Alkaline x2)
  • AV cable
  • USB cable
  • Wrist strap

One of the first thing I noticed about the GE A1050 is the size, it is a perfect size to have with you at all times. Would fit great in your purse, diaper bag etc. . There is no excuse to miss the perfect shot when on the go !

Once I had the camera set up it was time to test it out .....

This might sound odd but the first feature I tried out was the Pan-Capture. With every other camera I have owned I have never been happy with the panoramic pictures from them. It was always hard to get the 3 photos lined up to get the photo to look right, to my surprise with the GE A1050 the it way so easy and the photo looked GREAT . The wide-view photos are produced by panning the camera across to create a panoramic photo. It is as easy as snapping the first photo and panning across lining up the target and it will automatically take the next photo. Once all 3 photos are taken you have a great seamless panoramic picture. (see below, photo straight out of camera)


The next thing I wanted to try was the zoom. This digital camera has 5x Optical Zoom. To give you an idea of the zoom capability, I took 2 photos of my dog while standing in the same spot. One zoomed all the way out and one zoomed all the way in.(see below, photos straight out of camera)




Another COOL features on the A1050 that I have not had on previous cameras is the Smile Detection which the shutter automatically releases when the smile appears so you can capture smiles the moment they happen. The other one is Blink Detection which alerts you if a subject’s eyes were closed so you can immediately retake the picture. Theses features are great when I am trying to capture that perfect photo of my toddler.

Here are a few miscellaneous photos I took (photos straight out of camera) :


Besides great photos this portable digital camera also allows you to take QuickTime motion JPEG with Audio. So besides getting that special moment in a photo you can also preserve it on video. Below is a fun video I captured of my 2 yr old with the A1050.

    I really like the A735. Mainly because it's pink and my other half definitely wouldn't "borrow" it,lol. He has his own and before mine broke he would often take it instead of his own on his car show trips.

    I like the G3WP it not only offers the panarama, blink detection etc but it is also water proof!!!!!

    I also like the G3WP, the fact that you can take pictures in or out of the water is a plus even though I can't swim maybe I could take pictures of sponges or something that isn't too deep. :)

    The GE A1235 digital camera also really caught my eye! It offers all the features, bells & whistles that will make capturing those candid moments of my children effortless and so easy! I love that it offers exceptional 12-megapixel resolution sensor and 3X zoom. The In-Camera Red-eye Removal is also wonderful because I have so many pics of my kids that are ruined because of their red "possessed" looking eyes! Thanks so much for the wonderful chance to enter.
