What are the different types of camera ? 

To choose the right camera, it's essential to know the differences between the models you'll find on our website. At AgfaPhoto, you'll find digital cameras, film cameras, disposable cameras and instant cameras. All these models have different parameters, designs and purposes. So let's take a closer look at the different features of these types of camera. 

Digital camera 

A digital camera (or APN) is a device that records images directly onto a memory card rather than onto film. The camera collects the light via an electronic sensor, and the information received is then digitally encoded before appearing on the screen so that you can view the photo taken. 

Did you know that the very first digital camera was developed in 1979 ? It was a prototype that weighed 3.5kg ! 

Digital camera refers to a category of cameras that includes compact and bridge models, for example. Digital, however, refers to the method by which the image is captured and recorded. 

At AgfaPhoto, we offer digital cameras in our Realishot range. You'll find models that are perfect for discovering the world of photography, but also for meeting all your needs and desires ! 

Last but not least, digital cameras are popular because they are compact, take up little space and can easily be slipped into a bag. 

Film camera

When we talk about film cameras, we're referring to a model that has a long history in the world of photography. Yes, this type of camera was widely used before the advent of digital photography ! 

A film camera differs from a digital camera in that it uses a film rather than an electronic memory. It is on this film that the picture is recorded. With a film camera, you can take photos in black and white, but also in colour, depending on the film you choose. What's special about film cameras is that you only see the photos you've taken once they've been developed ! 

Most of the models you'll find in our online shop are equipped with 35mm sensors, so you can take high-quality photos with all the charm of film! What's more, AgfaPhoto models are reusable: all you have to do to restart a series of photos is put in a new roll of film. 

Note that film cameras are renowned for their ability to withstand light very well. They also have a flash, so you can take photos indoors, for example.
