Blink detection? You mean this new GE camera can detect when a person in the photo being taken blinks? This is something new in cameras.
The new GE E1050 compact camera promises to do just that, plus a few more. It actually offers smile and blink detection (two different functions), better optics, HDTV, GPS, 5X zoom, touch screen LCD and 10 megapixels of resolution.
Itâ€™s the latest in GEâ€™s gallant attempt at making a significant presence in the consumer camera market, despite past lackluster performance with their initial offerings.
The GE E1050â€™s Blink Detection feature alerts the user if the subjects are blinking, immediately after the photo is captured, allowing the photo to be retaken. A separate feature, Smile Detection, automatically detects when subjects are smiling and captures the photo at that point.
The E1050, $250 MSRP, brings to 15 the total number of cameras in the GE-branded digital camera line. The new offerings, promise bright and sharp pictures based on photos made available to the press by General Imaging.
