General Imaging Debuts 2009 GE Cameras

General Imaging, the worldwide exclusive licensee for GE branded cameras, unveiled its first cameras in March 2007. And while the brand may not have quite the same name recognition in the world of photography as Canon or Nikon, General Imaging definitely offers some feature-rich cameras at affordable prices.

This year at PMA, General Imaging added ten new models to its digital camera lineup. All of the new models feature at least 9 megapixels of resolution, and seven of the new models boast of 12 megapixels or more. Of particular note are the G3WP, which is waterproof, and the E1250TW, which has a touchscreen display. Here’s a quick look at each of the new models. Click on any of the cameras for a larger view.
