'Create by Jason Wu' Brings Fashion Sense to GE Point-and-Shoots
Set to debut in mid-March, the Create is fairly basic, with 12 megapixels and a 2.7-inch LCD screen. Made to be effortless, the camera has built-in memory and a retractable USB plug for simple transferring. However, it's the aesthetic that makes this General Imaging (GE's camera arm) shooter stand out from the pack. Outfitted in metal, the Create comes in white, black, gold, red, yellow, blue and green, and, for material snobs, the white, black and gray models arrive in leather. GE reports that each camera will come packed with "luxurious" accessories, like a camera pouch that doubles as a lens cleaner, and "elegant wrist and neck straps." No pictures of said straps have appeared, but we'd bet the fashion world would have a hard time accepting a camera as the new pendant-du-jour.
Meant for people who want an easy, adorable and style-savvy option, Create by Jason Wu won't get any adulation from the high-end photo crowd. Yet, this may be the only way for many fashionistas to get their hands on affordable Jason Wu. [From: GE, via DVICE]
