Re: new line of Kodak cameras
oldshutterbug, the GE X600 strikes me as bearing the most similarity to the new Kodak bridge camera, except for a difference in the pixel counts. My impression of the GE' cameras comes from past reviews. So, if the newest models produce better results, that's all to the good.
I've long thought the GE bridge cameras look like descendants of the Fuji S1000fd . I wonder if General Imaging was the original manufacturer or if it licensed the design (and maybe the molds for the body parts) from Fuji after production of the S1000fd ceased. That's trivia, I suppose, but it would be interesting to know.
