I’ll be honest, GE isn’t exactly the first brand name that comes to mind when I think of digital cameras, but I do like the fact that their new E1050TW comes with an HDMI connector allowing you to connect it to the flat screen TV in your living room and bore your friends with vacation photos in stunning high-def! The camera also follows the recent trend of using a large 3 inch touch-screen display in lieu of most buttons, which also features an auto-brightness function that keeps it viewable whether you’re indoors or out. Other specs include a 10 megapixel sensor, 5X optical zoom, 4.5X fake (aka digital) zoom and a 28mm wide angle lens. You also get software features like in camera panorama stitching, smile, blink and face detection, electronic image stabilization, red-eye removal and a 720P MPEG4 video mode. It’ll be available near the end of September for about $260, and if interested you can pick one up in your choice of black, blue, red, silver and white colors.
