This has been a research topic with us lately--we need another
camera--more students and teachers using it. I bought an Agfa Efoto 1280
about 2 1/2 yrs ago and it has been a real champ. We bought an extra
smart media card (8MB). The images are stored as JPEG and we usually
take photos at 720 ppi. They are clear and very sharp printed in a 8 1/2
by 11 format. Of course, we usually adjust them in Photoshop--Levels,
Sharpness, Contrast. etc as necessary.( We also bought an Agfa scanner
that has been a real star performer).
I would like to look at the Sony Mavica, but our next round of computers
purchased were Mac G3s that don't have a floppy drive. I was reticent to
get a camera that couldn't be used by every workstation. Perhaps putting
student photos on the server would work. Any recommendations???
