Image processing times in REC mode for, and mode images are given as 8. The corresponding times for image playback are 7. These are stated as average times, and agreed well with our own measurements.

Startup time is given as "less than 2 seconds", but this is a little misleading, as it represents only the time required to wake from "sleep" mode, not from a power-off condition. We measured Agfa ePhoto 1680 Digital Camera power-on delay time at about 8 seconds in REC mode.

We particularly like the 's feature that allows you to interrupt image playback: When viewing images, you can move on to Agfa ePhoto 1680 Digital Camera next one in the camera's memory, without waiting for the current one to finish displaying. This is very convenient when you Agfa ePhoto 1680 Digital Camera to quickly move through the images in the camera, without resulting to the multi-thumbnail display.

Shutter Lag Time We've recently begun measuring shutter-release delay times on digital cameras, since this is an often-overlooked parameter that significantly affects camera usage.

By shutter-release delay, we refer to the lag time between when you press the shutter-release button, and when the camera actually takes a picture. This can include autofocus, autoexposure, and other camera functions before the shutter is actually tripped, and can be as long as a couple of seconds for some cameras. Agfa states shutter lag for Agfa ePhoto 1680 Digital Camera as msec 1 secondinclusive of the time required for autofocus. We were surprised to find Agfa's own shutter-lag rating rather conservative, since our measurements consistently found the shutter lag under this condition to be only 0.

The shutter-lag testing utility's resolution is only 0. The 0. Agfa ePhoto 1680 Digital Camera


Relative to other cameras, the full-autofocus shutter lag is slightly better than average, while the lag with prefocus is among the best we've measured. Image Storage and Interface Like most digicams these days, the ePhoto has no memory internal to the camera for storing images. It uses the tiny "SmartMedia" removable-memory cards, and comes equipped with a 4 MB unit. Agfa ePhoto 1680 Digital Camera


Note though, that only 3. No 5-volt cards, please!

Swiveling the lens to a completely vertical position exposes the memory card slot on the side of the main camera body. Open the spring-loaded door, insert the memory card as illustrated on the inside of the door, and you're all set to capture images. All images are captured and stored in JPEG format.

As one would expect, the storage capacity of the card is dependent on the resolution level at which you capture images. At a maximum setting, a 4 MB card can store 6 images; at the setting, 12 images; and at the setting, 48 images. Of course, the number of images stored on each Agfa ePhoto 1680 Digital Camera will vary, as individual images can be captured at varying resolution levels and saved on the same memory card.

As a minor aside, we liked the fact that Agfa ePhoto 1680 Digital Camera could change the SmartMedia card and change the batteries! A small thing, to be sure, but some cameras use a bottom-mounted arrangement for memory cards, meaning you have to unmount them from a tripod in order to pull the card.

Connecting Agfa ePhoto 1680 Digital Camera ePhoto to a computer is equally simple: Plug the jack on one end of the serial cable provided to the serial port on the camera, and the other end into the serial port on the computer. If using a Macintosh computer, use the special Mac adapter cable provided. Transfer rates appear about typical, although we noted that the could successfully connect to our old, finicky MHz Pentium notebook at the full Kbaud. We've found that some cameras will only connect to this older CPU at For Agfa ePhoto 1680 Digital Camera comparison purposes, we timed the transfer of a K sample image at about 40 seconds, with no post-processing to remove JPEG artifacts.

On the slow MHz Pentium, post-processing actually took longer than the transfer itself, as much as 53 seconds additional on Agfa ePhoto 1680 Digital Camera mode image. When testing cameras, we normally just pull the images off the camera's removable media by whatever means are most convenient: PC Card adapter, FlashPath adapter, whatever. We examine the captured images to be sure we've gotten the framing right, but don't run them through the cameras' software unless necessary to exercise a particular feature, and then never until after the shooting session is over.

You can tell the software to automatically apply the PhotoGenie processing during download, but once the images are Agfa ePhoto 1680 Digital Camera your computer, you can only enhance one image at a time, a tedious process. See the separate section below, for more information on the PhotoGenie technology. Fortunately, routine use of PhotoWise is made easier by the fact that it directly supports almost any possible form of connectivity to theincluding PC Card adapters for the SmartMedia cards, or the FlashPath floppy-disk adapter:
