The Agfa CL34 digital camera has fair to poor energy efficiency. Flash range is only a mere 2 meters.
Unretouched image quality is surprisingly poor (but remember, this IS a budget camera) and is usually full of artifacts. Unless the subject is really very well lighted, this camera doesn't perform very well -- not even in daylight.

Picture quality is good, as is the software bundled with the camera. Dead easy to use.
After buying the camera I bought a compact flash card. This is a must. Also rechargeable batteries are a must, the highest capacity available. (read more)
