GE's first bridge camera is now available in UK stores. The X5 offers a 14MP sensor and 15x optical zoom, putting it amongst the likes of the Panasonic FZ38 specs-wise. There's also a Pan-Capture Panorama, which operates on a similar theory to Sony's Whip Pan, captures a wider image by combining multiple shots taken in a single motion.
The GE X5 also has image stabilisation, blink detection and a high dynamic range mode is also present on the camera, which is priced at a very competitive £129.99. We expect a review sample of the camera soon, check back on www.whatdigitalcamera.com in the next couple of weeks for a first look.
