General Electric J1458W overview

  • 1Description

The J1458W Digital Camera (Black) from General Electric is loaded with features that make shooting friends, family and the world around you fun and easy. As part of the GE Smart Series line of cameras, the J1458W offers a number of smart features that simplify both standard and complicated shots. Smile Detection can tell when your subject is smiling and automatically releases the shutter at the right moment and Face Auto Exposure detects faces within the frame and automatically adjusts the exposure to highlight the face. Combine Smile Detection with Face AE and Red-eye Reduction to never miss your child's (or your BFF's) beautiful expressions. Also, after you've taken the shot, check with Blink Detection to immediately see who blinked and keep the group together for one more shot - it's worth it.

Auto Scene is a feature that will allow you to shoot complicated images without complicated settings. Just dial Auto Scene to one of the numerous settings that correspond to what you are shooting, whether it is fireworks, sunsets or children, and let the camera do the work.

Pancapture offers a simple method to get great panorama shots. No more shooting multiple takes and stitching them together later (or never!). Pancapture, with just one touch of the shutter button and a simple panning motion, will capture a single, complete image of a picturesque landscape or a long dinner table filled with relatives. Or be creative and use Pancapture vertically for fun portraits.

The J1458W has expanded its focal range to be a true wide angle with a 28-104mm lens (in 35mm format) that will allow you to open up your frame to include more or zoom to an incredible 30x, with a combination of optical and digital zoom.  This nifty camera also incorporates digital image stabilization to compensate for any movement or shaking when shooting. Particularly helpful when shooting in low light or when zoomed out to 104mm, digital image stabilization will virtually eliminate blurred images.

The J1458W also comes with 720p High Definition video for the stories that are told better through video. Quality video and high resolution photos in an affordable, easy to use camera, that's what we have here. And the J1458W also steps up to be more environmentally friendly by utilizing a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery that can be recharged with the included adapter or via your computer.

Auto Scene
For those who literally just want to point and shoot, the Auto Scene mode automatically selects and sets the correct scene type for the best pictures possible. Auto Scene modes include Portrait, Children, Sport, Indoor, Leaf, Snow, Sunset, Fireworks, Glass, Museum, Landscape, Night Landscape, Night Portrait, Beach, Text, Party, ID, Fisheye, Panning Shot, Photo Frame and Sketch.
Image Stabilization
Digital Image Stabilization automatically corrects unintentional camera movements giving you crisp, blur-free images.
28mm Wide Angle Lens
A wider angle lens allows for better group shots and, in general, captures a larger scene. This 28mm-104mm (in 35mm format) zoom lens covers the full range of standard focal lengths.
HD 720p Video
Video recording in high definition 720p resolution
Wide-view photos are produced by panning the camera to create a seamless panoramic picture. Push the shutter button once, pan across your scene and you've just created a single-image gorgeous panoramic photograph.
High Dynamic Range
An in-camera feature, High Dynamic Range will read your image and allow you to adjust the exposure to capture details otherwise lost to both shadowed and brightly lit areas of your photos.
Smile Detection
The camera knows when the smiles come and automatically releases the shutter at the precise moment. Great when photographing kids.
Blink Detection
When someone blinks, and they always do, the blink detection will indicate who it was and give you the chance to shoot your group again.
Face Auto Exposure
The camera recognizes when a face is to be photographed and automatically adjusts the exposure to highlight the face as opposed to the background or foreground.
Lithium-ion Battery
No need to keep buying AA batteries or to keep bumming when you don't have two. The Lithium-ion battery is rechargeable, interchangeable and more environmentally friendly. You can charge it with the included AC adapter or with your computer
The J1458W Smart Series digital camera is available in black, red or silver.
