rab546 I used to have the Fujifilm FinePix S4200 and really enjoyed using it. Was doing a lot of outdoors shots, mostly nature while walking trails and hiking. It was also good but not great for recording video.

I'm not a camera expert and i'm only giving my opinion but depending on what you plan to shoot i'd go with the Fujifilm FinePix S4200 of the choices. It's more of a mega zoom camera than a point and shoot, if your doing more close up indoor partys people shots then something more compact might be better.

I recently upgraded to the canon SX50 which is a much more expensive camera which definently shows when you use it.

The only problem I had with the Fujifilm FinePix S4200 was that it felt perfect in my hand but my wife thought it was heavy and awkward and couldn't hold it for long periods, she is more inclined to use a small simple point and shoot. But she seems a lot more willing to use the canon she likes the grip on it and it doesn't cause the strain of the Fuji.

I'd say try it before buying it and make sure you like the feel of it.

The Fujifilm looks okay I guess, but I'd go for the Canon out of the three. Seems to be decently spec'd and it has the Canon name/quality, plus its much more compact and pocketable.
Gotcha on the GE. I actually started to wonder why I had never heard of a GE "camera" before.

Need help finding a camera...

I have been without a camera long enough. I have my crappy phone camera but it just doesn't cut it. I am on a very tight budget and I am not going to be using this camera for much so take that into consideration. I will post links to ones I am looking at so you can tell me whether or not they are good.
