AgfaPhoto might want you to believe that its Optima range of cams is "perfect for the ambitious photographer," but in truth they're entry-level shooters with a slant toward helping the less technically gifted.

AgfaPhoto's new DV-600uw rugged camera may not be quite as stylish as Pentax's latest ruggedized offering, but it looks like it has it beat where it counts, with it able to handle submersion in water up to 33 feet deep (compared to the Pentax's 16 feet), and hold up to the usual drops, dust, and di...

The new compact marks the firm's first point-and-shoot with "integrated face-tracking technology," which allows up to three f...

Most photog types should easily recognize the Agfa name -- they've been doing the whole traditional and digital imaging thing forever. Unfortunately, they've farmed out their brand for a new AgfaPhoto line of digicams to be built by German consumer electronics company plawa, and plawa's first sta...
