AgfaPhoto OPTIMA model range
AgfaPhoto now offers OPTIMA cameras in a slim-design housing with an enhanced range of functions. With this new range of models, AgfaPhoto is once again reviving a concept from its brand history. Just as it did in 1959 when the first camera with automatic programme selection and the name OPTIMA was brought to the market.
AgfaPhoto OPTIMA 1438m
Wide-angle camera for landscape and architectural shots
The AgfaPhoto OPTIMA 1438m is equipped with a 32mm wide-angle lens. This means that the photographer can capture large areas in small interior spaces or on sightseeing tours. A selection of 23 scene modes permit the flexible adjustment to each situation. The OPTIMA 1438m comes in an attractive metal housing and presents a ten-megapixel CCD sensor, a 4x optical zoom and a 3″ display.
AgfaPhoto OPTIMA 1338mT
Digital camera with a large 3-inch touchscreen
The AgfaPhoto OPTIMA 1338mT is equipped with a touchscreen display, adding a whole new level to meaning of ‘easy operation’. A gentle touch of the large 3″ display is all it takes for the user to access the intuitive user interface. 24 scene modes such as Night shot or Sports offer optimal settings for most sceneries. For fans of YouTube, the AgfaPhoto OPTIMA 1338mT has another special highlight: Any recorded video can immediately be saved in the YouTube format for a convenient upload to the portal. The OPTIMA 1338mT has a ten-megapixel CCD sensor and a 3x optical zoom. The slim metal housing looks slick and emphasises the lifestyle character of this AgfaPhoto camera.
AgfaPhoto OPTIMA 8328m
Slimline camera for ambitious amateur photographers
The AgfaPhoto OPTIMA 8328m is the right choice for ambitious photographers. Its PASM mode enables parameters such as aperture and shutter speed to be manually adjusted. Just like the OPTIMA 1338mT, the camera additionally permits videos to be saved in YouTube format. An eight-megapixel CCD sensor, a 3x optical zoom and a 2.7″ display round off the features of the OPTIMA 8328m.
Additional functions for perfect photos
The cameras in the AgfaPhoto OPTIMA range feature automatic “Face detection” of up to eight faces. The “Smile detection” function ensures that the camera captures the shot just at the moment when the smile happens. The picture stabiliser reduces shaking on shutter release. All OPTIMA cameras are equipped with a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery, support the SDHC memory card format and can be used as a video camera.
The AgfaPhoto OPTIMA 1438m is available for $209.95, the OPTIMA 1338mT for $199.95 dollars and the OPTIMA 8328m for $139.95 (MSRP incl. VAT).
