The MX-2700 battery compartment
is under a small cover in the base. Normally you
wouldn't need to open or remove the battery as
it charges in-camera. Simply plug in the supplied
charger / AC adapter and battery charging is indicated
by a yellow light next to the viewfinder.
All digicams should be this easy to power!
Ejecting or inserting SmartMedia
is real easy, for those who haven't seen it before,
here's a three step diagram, first flip the right
hand catch down, the door will pop-open, then
push the SmartMedia card in a little and it will
I must admit that this is much
easier than the sometimes awkward CompactFlash
compartments (fingernails please), however I did
find that the SmartMedia cards seemed quite fragile...
On the left side of the camera along wit the SmartMedia
compartment are camera connections. Top to bottom:
Digital - Serial RS232 / RS432 connector (cables
Video Out - TV / VCR output.
DC IN - connection for supplied AC Adapter / battery
Supplied Accessories ("In the box")
Along with the normal serial (PC and Mac), video
cables and the AC adapter / charger is also this
attractive :) leather pouch which has a belt loop
on one side.
Much nicer than the acrylic things shipped by other
NOTE: The inclusion of this
item is on a regional basis, I've had notes from
US MX2700 owners to say they didn't get the leather
