AgfaPhoto's return to the digital world
At the Photokina 2006 there were not that many surprises in way of digital camera introductions. The last couple of years we have seen several big names disappearing from the digital imaging market or merged with other manufacturers. One well-known name in the world of photography is Agfa. It is therefore quite nice to see the rebirth of this brand with a new series of digital cameras.

Although Agfa Photo is not developing any digital cameras and just bought the license to brand-name a line of cameras, we are welcoming Agfa Photo and wish them success in this competitive world. The AgfaPhoto DC-633xs is a compact digital camera with a six Megapixel CCD image sensor on board and a 3x optical zoom lens. Nothing really special, just an entry-level model for the mass market.

This is also the case with its little brother the AgfaPhoto DC-533; a compact digital camera offering 5 Megapixel resolution and 3x optical zoom. The AgfaPhoto DC-630x is a silver colored digital camera featuring a 3x optical zoom, and 6 Megapixel resolution. All the Agfa Photo branded digital cameras will become available after the Photokina. Well let us see if AgfaPhoto will succeed in re-entering the digital camera market and more important stay in it!
