The E-series from GE comes in four flavors: 850, 1030, 1040 and 1240. Let’s start with the basics and I’ll fill you in on the minute details later.
The E850 is the mid-level point-and-shoot camera in the GE lineup. Picture taking is a breeze with the 8-megapixel resolution and 28mm equivalent (aka fakey fake fake) wide-angle lens, but it does come in handy for those close-quarters group pics.
The 850 has a 5x optical zoom and 5.1x digital zoom for the whopping 3-inch LCD for your viewing pleasure of course. The basic features are the same throughout the GE lineup. The E-series is also available in black, silver, red, blue and white.
