E1050TW – Setting a new standard for the term ‘’feature rich’’

General Imaging, designer and manufacturer of GE branded digital cameras, announced today the arrival of its latest model.

Housed in a stainless steel body, the E1050TW (Touch & Wide) is a great all rounder with many innovative features, which are destined to make it a ‘best in class’ compact.

1. 3.0’’ touch screen LCD –with auto adjust brightness
2. All glass aspheric 28 mm wide-angle lens. (35mm camera equivalent)
3. 10.1 megapixels
4.  5 x optical zoom
5. HD output compatible, with HD picture viewing directly from the camera, eliminating the need for a docking cradle.
6. High Definition movie recording (1280 x 720 pixels)

With the increasingly popularity of flat screen TVs, high street and online retailers will find a ready made market for this camera.

The E1050TW has already won the prestigious Plus X Award for innovation and ease of use. And it packs a punch in a slim, stylish exterior, with 10.1 mega pixels and 5x optical zoom. It enhances an already strong range, which has models from entry level (A735 and A835) upwards.

·      Image stabilisation - automatically overcomes shaking or blurring caused by hand movement, helping you take clearer, sharper pictures.

General Imaging has the worldwide, exclusive licence to design, manufacture and distribute digital cameras under the GE brand name. Heading up the European team is Katsuhiko Watanabe, a veteran of the Photo industry with over thirty years experience in many companies including Polaroid, Tokina and Hoya. Commercial Director for Europe is Gary Banks, who says: We recognise that in order to be successful, our cameras need to offer something for all the links in the chain: distributors, retailers and finally the consumer.

The GE digital camera proposition fits this brief and ensures that all parties are well catered for.
