Great camera


As with most electronic devices, digital cameras will continue to come out with newer and greater models. There are higher pixel cameras on the market that have more memory, but for the price this camera does an excellent job.

Digital is where it's at...down with developing film!, GULPS batteries

Agfa 1280 Great 1st digital camera


I enjoyed this as a first digital camera. Anyone who decides to buy this one needs to also get a FlashPath disk so that your computer can read the mini-photo-disk used by the camera. Or get one of those USB mini-disk readers. You will also need a...

Easy to use, economical!

East batteries! On-off switch too easy to maneuver.

Great Photos and Simple to Use


This is my second digital camera. I first purchased an Olympus D-220 and was very pleased with it. However, as prices came down and resolution went up, I decided it was time for a higher resolution camera.

Very simple controls and a wide range of features

Pics can sometimes be a bit yellowish

Pretty pictures from a pretty camera


I have wanted a digital camera for a very long time, and after looking for a very long time, I came to the conclusion that this one was the best I could get. They were selling the Agfa ePhoto 1280 at Costco Online for much cheaper than other cameras...

Great picture quality, swivel lens, many options

Can only hold so many options, the software is lacking in options

Remember Taking School Pictures?


Not since the fun and anticipation of getting my grade school pictures taken have I had such a camera revelation. If I had spent a little more time education myself about the Agfa ePhoto 1280 prior to purchasing it I think I might have been money...

Inexpensive compared to some

Poor picture quality

A Great Camera for a Great Price!


In all, this is an excellent camera. The features and picture quality far outweigh the speed, which I see as the camera's only real shortcoming. Agfa even includes a charger and a set of NiMh batteries with the camera. I bought this camera for $330...

clear, srisp picture, durable camera, good desing, nice features

a little expensive, but it's worth it

Agfa Forever!


The Agfa 1280 is the perfect camera for the beginner or the professional. As a matter of fact, a Doctor who was s-o-o-o pleased with the quality of Agfa Medical Imaging, recommend the 1280 to me. He was so enthused about his 1280, that he couldn't...

Price, Over all Performance, Zoom Feature

Low light photography, blinding flash

Afga 1280 ~ A little click will do ya!


After struggling for years to use up that last two or three shots on the roll of film I discovered the digital camera world while visiting my cousin in Hawaii. She has some old clunker that probably costs a fortune but she needs it in her work as a...

Clear pics

That little on/off switch sucks

Very User Friendly


Working in the camera business, both in sales and also a photographer, I would have to give the Agfa 1280, 2 thumbs up! Not only is the resolution the highest for the money, it is the most user friendly camera you will find on the market today....

Comes with software, good price, excellent pictures.

I haven't discovered any!

If you liked your Kodak Brownie....


Fortunately, I was able to borrow this camera from a friend before I made a decision about purchasing it. I didn't want this model after using it.


poor image quality, flash that thinks it's "intelligent," awkward to handle.
