AgfaPhoto Press Release
PMA 09: AgfaPhoto presents a digital camera for nature and sports fans
The AgfaPhoto OPTIMA 830UW is ideal for diving, hiking and skiing
Las Vegas (USA) / Uhingen (Germany), March 2nd, 2009. Only a few days are left until AgfaPhoto releases the new outdoor camera AgfaPhoto OPTIMA 830UW. The new camera will be launched at the PMA in Las Vegas, from March 3rd through to March 5th, 2009, in the South Hall at booth A 271.
Waterproof, frost-proof and shockproof
The extra sturdy, but lightweight digital camera is an ideal companion on the go, delivering a great performance in every one of your favorite sports and activities. It can be used for diving up to a depth of ten meters (33 feet) and, needless to mention, also takes pictures in the rain. The camera is also fit for winter, because it is frost-proof up to a temperature of -5°C (22°F). Even a fall doesn’t throw the AgfaPhoto OPTIMA 830UW off balance, as it is shockproof for a fall from a height of one meter (3.3 feet). The AgfaPhoto OPTIMA 830UW comes with a built-in image stabilizer, which guarantees that real-life action shots don’t get blurry. Taking unique souvenir photos of ski trips and sleigh rides is a cinch. For this purpose you may also want to use the panorama function, which is ideally suited for wide views from mountain peaks. With the included software “Zoner PanoramaMaker”, it’s easy to make great 360-degree shots on your computer. And to show the fun with so much outdoor action, there is the “Smile Detection” function, ensuring the right focus just when everyone is smiling.
Even more top technology in a sporty outfit
The AgfaPhoto OPTIMA 830UW has a 2.5-inch wide TFT display, with 3X optical zoom, 8 mega pixel resolution, high photo sensitivity of up to ISO 1600, and 21 scene mode programs, such as underwater or night shot modes. The camera leads the pack not only with its technology, but also with its sporty silver metal casing.
The AgfaPhoto OPTIMA 830UW is available immediately for only $349.95 dollars (MSRP including VAT).
