AgfaPhoto at Photokina- We still make film cameras

Daniel Lim - Sep 25, 2008

Apparently the marketing team at Agfaphoto didn’t get the memo that analog segment in photo camera has long lost it battle to digital cameras. They are still showing not one, but two snapshot film cameras at Photokina. Now that doesn’t make much sense to me; new comer looks to learn back-to-basic photography would probably force to pick up a film camera due to academic reason. (Yes, photographer-wannabe has to start from scratch) There are plenty of prosumer and pro-level film cameras widely available in used market and they are dirt cheap; you can find them almost everywhere from ebay to local mom and pop stores. Why would one buy a new point and shoot film camera at this point?
