The Cameras Used

Description of the cameras used to take the photographs

Digital cameras are great fun. It's easy, it's fast, it's cheap. In no time one has a few thousands photos, and not the faintest clue as to what or who is on which photos.

Since I bought my first digital camera in late 1998 I have taken more than 6000 photos, several thousands of them are available on this site.

This page describes the cameras used to take most of the photographs.

Olympus C-700UZ

I bought this camera in July 2001 so the bulk of the pictures in the database are still taken with the old camera.

The Olympus C-700UZ is a 2.1 Mpixel camera, offering various resolutions up to 1600x1280 in JPEG og TIFF formats. It has a 10x optical zoom and 2.7x digital zoom.

The C-700UZ uses SmartMedia flash memory cards.

The camera uses a USB interface. Once connected to the computer it behaves as a removable disk and the pictures can be opened or copied with any program.

Linux: the camera is an USB storage class device so it uses the usb-storage driver. The camera appears as a SCSI disk, normally on /dev/sda1. Once attached the camera can be mounted as a vfat file system.

Technical specifications: Olympus.

Agfa ePhoto 780

This is a fairly old camera. I have had this camera since November 1998, so I have several thousands picture taken with it.

The ePhoto 780 is a 0.35 Mpixel camera, capable of 640x480 resolution. Windows software can extrapolate these pictures up to 1024x768 pixels. Image format is JPEG. It is an absolutely no-frills camera, with no zoom or other adjustments.

The ePhoto 780 uses SmartMedia flash memory cards, but only up to 8Mb.

Picture are copied to the computer via a serial cable.

When used with the build in flash pictures get a yellowish colouring as can be seen on a lot of the indoors pictures on this site.

The Agfa ePhoto line has been discontinued.
