GE second-gen cameras

General Electric has announced what will only be its second generation of digital cameras, due in the spring. All of them will feature blink and smile detection, delaying shots for the best expressions. At the top of the compacts will be the E series, led by the E1050 ($249), a 10-megapixel camera able to record 720p video at 30fps. Shooters can output the video to an HD display, and control various functions though a three-inch touchscreen. Its lens is capable of 5x optical zoom, and its light sensitivity extends to ISO 3200. An optional GPS receiver can geotag images.

The E1235 and 1035 switch to a 3x lens, a 2.7-inch LCD without touch control, and 20fps VGA video. The 1235 is a 12-megapixel camera, while the 1035 is rated at 10 megapixels. The E840S, meanwhile, is an eight-megapixel camera with 4x zoom, 30fps video, and a maximum ISO of 1600.

Closer to the "prosumer" level is the X3, s successor to the earlier X1. The new camera features a 12x optical lens, and supports ISO settings up to 3200, as well as 720p video at an intermediate 27fps. Its standard LCD display measures 2.7 inches.

The G-series cameras are headed up by the G3, which sports a 10-megapixel sensor, 4x zoom, ISO 1600, 30fps VGA video, and a 2.7-inch LCD. The G2 mimics its sibling, but scales down to eight megapixels and VGA video.

The cheapest cameras will likely be the A835 and A735 (pictured). These share features with other GE cameras, such as 3x zoom and 30fps VGA video; they even have greater internal memory, pushed to 32MB. Their LCDs are shrunk to 2.5 inches however, and they each run on a pair of AA batteries, limiting them to 150 shots at a time. The cameras are rated at eight and seven megapixels respectively.
