GE just announced a full Spring line-up of giggitydiggitycams. First up is the X series. The X1 is aimed at the prosumer who wants maximum zoom and loads of features to help you get the best picture possible. The 8-megapixel digi has 12x optical zoom that’s paired with 5.1x digital zoom and together they boast a 61.2x max zoom. For the paparazzi with a nervous twitch, the X1 is equipped with a handgrip and image stabilization. The X1 claims to have a very intuitive UI that’s viewable on the 2.5-inch LCD.
Other notable features include in-camera panoramic stitching, red-eye removal, face-tracking, electronic stabilization, MPEG-4 movie recording and a 4 gigabyte SD/SDHC expansion slot. It will be available in black and white. Pricing is currently unavailable.
