Agfa ePhoto 1280 Digital Camera Specifications

Agfa ePhoto 1280

If you’re one of those professional photographers that want an attractive digital camera then you’ll like the ePhoto 1280 because the shape of this camera is very terrific and cool. It does not have any kind of optical viewfinder, you use the 2-inch TFT color LCD screen for everything; framing your subject, previewing the stored images and for setting the multitude of camera functions and options.

The entire camera will fit into an average sized palm and weighs about a pound and a half with the batteries in it. AA-size batteries and a nice table top charger unit are used in this camera. Agfa looks smart enough to recognize that an LCD-only digicam tends to go through batteries like candy so they gave us the best. The table top charger is not an ordinary battery charger; it is capable of fully recharging a set of NiMH batteries in about 2 hours.
