An older camera now (November 2002), but still one with unique features that I enjoy. For near 1MB pictures, the images display beautifully on a monitor. Plastic body is disappointing, but swivel lens with flash is a plust for design; also, menus are logical and easy to use (why did Agfa drop this design?). Threaded lens is another nice feature. RJC Problems: Plastic covers for connections frequently opens; plastic, while light with good tensil strength, would have been nicer in a metal. ...

When the decision were made to buy a digital camera i was looking for the following features: 1- A robust camera in our harsh conditions 2- Quality and performance 3- Facility to use filters and additional lenses.

The slow loading time is certainly not a problem as I was looking for quality and ...

I purchased the camera May 1999 for only 4990.-ATS, that's about $330. Very good is the swivel lens design. January 2001, the camera survived 1.5m down from the tripod to stone ground. But in September 2001, the monitor of the camera did not survive when my 3 year old doughter stumbled with the camera. I just purchased for $150 an other AGFA 1280 for my doughter that she can continue to learn how to make photos. Annoying is only the software from AGFA. At every program start, the AGFA ...

I've had my 1289 for 2 years and let me tell you the image quality beats the pants off the Kodak D280L I have to use at work. OK so the camera is a little ackward to use but I don;t get nose prints on the LCD like viewfinder users do! I am now using the Energizer Lithium batteries and have taken hundreds of pictures on my first batch. I also like the light collectin properties of this camera. I've taken many concert photos from the nose bleed seats, turning the camera to the dark ...
