That’s a lot of size and quality reduction for images designed to show what the camera is capable of. It not only does a noticeably better job of iterpolating images to a larger size, but it smooths edges and removes JPEG and sensor artifacts at the same time. The flash has the usual Auto, Fill-in, Red-eye reduction and off settings. Swiveling the lens to a completely vertical position exposes the memory card slot on the side of the main camera body. On the slow MHz Pentium, post-processing actually took longer than the transfer itself, as much as 53 seconds additional on this mode image.

Cameras by Aloysius Low Dec 6, Always on, to provide “fill” lighting, regardless of ambient light levels.

This is a long exposure though, well beyond most people’s ability to hold the camera steady enough to render a sharp image. At a maximum agf, a 4 MB card can store 6 images; at the setting, 12 images; and at the setting, 48 images. The ‘s viewfinder image becomes noticeably more jerky when operating in low-light mode, but that’s a tradeoff we’ll gladly make.

Agfa ePhoto Digital Photography Review

Xgfa set the “neutral” value by which all other colors in your images will be evaluated: For speed comparison purposes, we timed the transfer of a K sample image at about 40 seconds, with no post-processing to remove JPEG artifacts. We’d like to see an option that lets you set and lock-in a manual white point setting, and then switch between that setting and “auto,” without having to re-set the manual white point again.

Images of differing resolutions may be combined on the same card. The on-camera flash may then be used to trigger studio flash units. Whilst browsing through my vast collection of digital cameras I noticed something odd.

Further cards will be available, including an 8MB version, de-restricting the number of images which can be captured. In macro mode, the range is from 4 to 39 inches 10cm to 1m at the wide-angle end, and from 20 to 39 inches 50 cm to 1m at the telephoto end. The serial numbers revealed that the matte body camera had a very low serial number. The ‘s manual provides timing measurements for not only average ephtoo processing and display times in both record and playback modes, but camera-startup and shutter lag times as well!

A rotating wheel on the right edge selects capture or playback modes. Digital zoom effect is in addition to any optical zoom or macro settings Preview settings: The Agfa ePhoto CL30 digital camera is an entry level megapixel digital camera that is available in two versions.

The ‘s autofocus range specification is a little confusing: This may well be because higher-end products cost many thousands of pounds and are considered a risk or unjustifiable expense by many photographers – photographers who would otherwise be keen to dip pehoto toes in the digital water. Video Out Capability The video out capability of the ePhoto lets you view captured images on a television through the wgfa of the supplied video cable.

Set a new white point by aiming the camera at a desired white area and capturing the “neutral” color data.

Although we found the ePhoto ‘s exposure system to be unusually sure-footed, it is still subject to being “fooled” by unusual subjects, whether a light object against a dark background, a backlit subject, or one that’s unusually uniform in overall brightness such as a snow scene. On the right at the top is the mode switch to turn the camera on in either the Record or Play mode. There is no optical viewfinder and unfortunately no hood or magnifier for the LCD panel, which would make viewing much easier in high ambient light.


Maybe this was one of the first batch and later models had the glossy finish? If it’s time for a bit better camera, this is your Canon If it’s time for a bit better camera, this is your Canon by Lori Epyoto.

The ‘s manual white-balance adjustment is somewhat more effective, and overall offers more precise matching between lighting conditions and white balance settings than the more ephoti “incandescent,” “fluorescent,” and similar settings on competing units. Note the increasing JPEG artifacts as we go down through the modes from to S, Note also that the amount of pseudo-sharpening also increases.

Overview In the ePhotoAgfa has built upon their earlier experience with the ePhotoand boosted raw sensor resolution to create a 1. We particularly like the ‘s feature that allows you to interrupt image playback: Externally, it isn’t built like a professional camera but the images it produces are certainly good enough for professional use. Rather, you can adjust the overall exposure relative to that which the camera would normally select.

As with essentially all digital cameras, our strong recommendation is to use NiMH rechargeables:
