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.
