    PS, Ansco was absorbed into Agfa

    Ta Rick. What's changed in all that time? Just what they're pushing, not how.
    CC, Image editing OK.

    Wow, I'm guessing that was the very first camera every with an auto mode huh? It's also great to see an old advertisement like that too, even the prices and deals - just how money was back then.

    Well, I guess the Sony a58 is the new Ansco in the sense that the a58 will do auto cropping for you now too (which I wished my a65 had so I can use it to compare my idea to Sony's lol)
    Take a portrait shot, it'll crop it so it looks the right way. Take landscape? No problems (if I remember correct, it can autocrop that too for you). Auto correct lens distortions and problems, etc. lol

    Anyways, back on topic, has anyone here used an Ansco?

    So where's the proof they took perfect photos every time?
    Love being reminded of the advert voice overs though.
    GO H.... N....., GO, away.
