Fujifilm MX-700 / Fujifilm FinePix 700 review
May 15, 2003

Good camera, but slow...

This was my very first digital camera.
It was quite expensive, but featured 1.3 mp (at lot at that time). The images taken can still be considered high quality today, though they lack resolution of course.
Anyway - there was no optical zoom, and storing images took ages and the camera wouldn't let you take another picture until the last has been saved to card.
And of course, downloading images via serial port is not amusing... But, hey, it worked on my AMIGA at this time!!!

Also the battery didn't last very long, especially with using the flash, of course. Since it has a LiIon battery, I never wanted to afford a second battery. (stupid, I know)

But I got a reasonable price for it at ebay, so I went forward to the Finepix 4700 Zoom which didn't have all those problems (and had a lot more pixels, too)

Problems:

- no optical zoom
- very slow
- quite short battery life
