The new GE G3WP camera is not the world’s first waterproof camera, but that’s not the point. Featuring 12.2 megapixels of resolution, 4x optical zoom, and a 2.7-inch LCD screen which automatically adjusts to changes in ambient light, the G3WP is waterproof to 10 feet (3 meters) that perfect for backyard pool parties, weekends at the lake, or walking in the rain.
As with the other cameras in the 2009 lineup, the G3WP offers Auto Scene Detection and Pan-Capture Panorama among its many advanced features. Auto Scene Detection automatically determines the appropriate scene type and optimizes exposure for sharp, vibrant pictures. Pan-Capture Panorama lets the user pan the camera across the scene while the engine automatically captures, determines overlap, and stitches the frames into a single panoramic picture.
