Max memory card size? I love my MX-500. It is old and slow, but takes GREAT pictures. Unfortunately, I needed to upgrade the memory card, so i bougtht 2-64MB cards. They don't work. I called FUJI, and they say only 32MB cards work. If that's true, that's too bad. If anyone knows a way around this, let me know. I still love my MX-500. Very sturdy, except for the fragile clips on the battery compartment door. The lens cover design is one of the best I've seen to date. The case is ...

Love the camera,, great pics and none of the problems downloading if you use a flashpath adapter. Had for two years and will update someday,, but for now it is just fine. Problems: Does eat batteries but don't have the serial + battery download problems with the flashpath floppy adapter.

I have had the MX500 since Nov '99 and have found it to be reliable and an excellent camera for it's time. Image quality and true to life color are probably it's strongest points. Although I am considering getting a newer Camera in the next 6 months, I shall definitely have a continued use for the old MX. Great viewing & slide show options when using the Camera as a photo album. Problems: Sometimes during battery changeover setup returns to defaults. No big deal, just convienence issue. Slo ...

The camera seems a bit heavy on batteries when downloading to a PC.

Owned this camera for about two years now, and It hasn't let me down once, easy to use, and returns the brightest sharpest pic's I have seen with out adjustment on some other camera's even at more pixels use. Macro's are fantastic, and landscapes are best, dull lighting needs adjustment. Love the shutter over lense, something when I was buying was inportant, also th efact it uses normal batteries, when travelling you cannot get to a plug socket sometimes, but batteries can be found even in ...

Bought my MX-500 in March of 99 for $399. It came bundled with another 8mg Smartmedia and the floppy adapter. I tried the serial download once, but the floppy adapter is much faster. Certainly not state of the art anymore (and I suspect that it never was), but it has never failed me, takes good outdoor shots, and great macros. I'm in the market for a new camera, but I plan on keeping the MX-500 handy because it's so compact and reliable. Love that retractable lens cover too! I'll be ...

I know this camera is discontinued, I still own one and am having a hard time deciding to get rid of it or not. The MX-500 was one of the first 1.5 (relative) megapixel cameras to hit the market for under $500, and for the time, it blew the competition away. The features are very basic compared to what's available now, but the striking feature of this camera (still) is it's image quality. ISO is rated at 100, 2x digital zoom (no optical), gerat macro mode, a bit of manual adjustment...on par ...
