X1 exposure modes include Auto, full P / A / S / M, plus 12 scene modes including Sport, Kids & Pets, Party/Indoor, Foliage, Snow, Beach, Fireworks, Aquarium, Portrait, Night Portrait, Landscape and Anti-Handshake.
The GE X1 uses four standard AA batteries (with alkaline disposables in the product bundle), offers USB and NTSC / PAL video connectivity, and includes both 26MB of built-in memory and an SD / MMC card slot.
Pricing and availability of the GE X1 have not been announced at this time. The X1 will be offered in either black or silver.
