General Imaging A830 : General Imaging launched the A830 at PMA 07, the Photo Marketing Association’s annual international conference and the leading photo industry convention and trade show. The General imaging A830 represents the first time General Electric has bestowed its highly regarded and trusted brand on a consumer camera line. General Imaging, led by Chairman & CEO Hiroshi “Hugh” Komiya, is the exclusive worldwide licensee for the GE cameras. The GE A830 offers popular advanced features as standard at every price point, including face tracking, image stabilization, red-eye removal, high ISO sensitivity, and panoramic stitching. The GE A830 sets a new benchmark for point-and-shoot digital cameras with a strong product identity.|
GE A830 - Optical zoom|
When you look at everything that the GE A830 can do, you’ll be impressed. But when you compare its price against those of similar cameras, you’ll be amazed. We’ve loaded this sleek and powerful point and-shoot camera with the features amateur photographers want most. Like a simple, intuitive user interface to reduce the user’s learning curve. A 3X optical zoom and a 5.1X digital zoom for capturing every detail. And a high-performance 2.5-inch LCD screen that’s easy to see.
General Imaging A830 - SDHC memory
The A830 provides great extras such as in-camera panoramic stitching, red-eye removal, face-tracking, electronic stabilization and MPEG-4 movie recording. Plus its memory is expandable up to 4 gigabytes using its SD/SDHC memory slot. Ounce for ounce, you won’t find a better value in an 8-megapixel camera. And that’s why the A830 is one of the first cameras worthy of the GE name.

About General Imaging
Hiroshi “Hugh” Komiya had already been at the pinnacle of business. He spent nearly three decades with Bridgestone Firestone, the global tire company. Then it was on to the camera business, where he worked for Olympus Corporation for more than a decade, culminating in his tenure as President of Olympus Imaging Corporation. Not a bad record, to be sure. He retired on June 29, 2005, at the age of 63, and like retirees the world over, he soon had a lot more time to perfect his golf swing. And that was nice for a while. But the kind of drive that gives Komiya his greatest thrill doesn’t come from a tee shot. It comes from a business challenge met and conquered. It’s the drive behind the entrepreneurial spirit, the drive of ingenuity, the drive of one who has seen the inside of a big corporation, learned from it, and dreamed of a better way.
