simple, stupid. There's no better way to describe the "Create by Jason
Wu" collection unveiled at PMA by General Imaging (a.k.a. GE). The fashion
designer's point-and-shoot could not be easier: you can shoot, choose flash,
and view galleries. That's it -- and in fact, if you need a cue, the shooter
reminds you to "hold still" while taking a shot. You're definitely
picking this up for style over substance, but still it's pleasantly light and
captures surprisingly decent images. As for the nitty-gritty specs, we're
looking at 12 megapixels, 3x optical zoom, and a 2.7-inch LCD.
The battery charges via a wall adapter or the retractible USB plug, which is
also how you movie images to your computer of choice. Color options? White,
black, gold, red, yellow, blue, green for a metal finish; and white, black and
grey for leather. A 4GB version is $180, and 8GB is $230 -- no memory cards
accepted here, folks. Look for the camera to debut, of all places, via Home
Shopping Network on March 16th. Press release after the break, shots below --
and while you're looking, we've also got an eyeful of the rest of GE's
point-and-shoot PMA collection.
