photokina 2008: Wide view with wide angle – the new digital camera from AgfaPhoto

The AgfaPhoto DC-8428s is pure inspiration with its 28mm wide angle lens

(PresseBox) (Leverkusen, ) New product release on 23rd September: The new AgfaPhoto DC-8428s with the 28mm wide angle lens will be presented to visitors at the Cologne photokina trade fair. You can try it out at the show until 28th of September in Hall 05.2 booth C031.

28mm wide angle lens and 4x optical zoom

The 28mm wide angle lens and the 4x optical zoom increases the photographic field of the camera. You can also capture large groups, rambling buildings and landscapes on one photo. The picture quality of the digital camera is as convincing as the fine design of the compact metal casing.

Face tracking

A further highlight of the camera is "Face tracking" function. The AgfaPhoto DC-8428s recognizes up to five faces per shot, meaning people are automatically perfectly photographed. The stabilizer also helps the picture to be sharp when the digital camera is not absolutely still at the moment of shutter release. Quite new possibilities arise when the Coupling function is enabled: two photos can be merged whilst still in the camera.

Panorama function

Further than the eye can see, pictures taken with the Panorama function can be later merged together. The software is easy to use and a 360º shot can be quickly created. Then simply sit back, view it and enjoy as you can now see the subject in a totally new dimension.

Even more state-of-the-art technology

The AgfaPhoto DC-8428s has a 2.7" TFT display (230,000 pixel), a 4x optical and 5x digital zoom, 8-megapixel resolution and 19 scene modes. Another handy feature is the "Display Brightness Mode" with which the display optimally adjusts to the lighting conditions thus ensuring you always get the best view of the display. The AgfaPhoto DC-8428s is equipped with a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery. Additionally the package contents also include a comprehensive software bundle with Zoner PanoramaMaker and Zoner PhotoStudio 9 Express.

The AgfaPhoto DC-8428s is available starting end of October for 169 Euros (RRP including VAT). Visit us at photokina 2008 and try out this exciting new product. We are available for you at the show from the 23rd through the 28th of September 2008 in Hall 05.2, booth C031.
