Excerpt: I couldnt afford a new camera and after using one of those tiny keyring digi camera this was brilliant. I had priced up a lot of cameras and needed at least £79.99 for the basic one. My friend then kindly lent me his MX500 and now he has a new camera phone I have brought it off him cheaply. The camera is silver and quite bulky compared to the newer ones. I have put mine into a shoulder strap case.
Excerpt: I bought one of these at auction on Ebay. I paid about £95 but this included a 4 and 32mb card. It is very easy to use, and I use standard rechargeable batteries, which last several weeks between charge if you keep the use of the lcd screen to a minimum. Previewing via TV screen is no problem using the video connector supplied. I bought a flashpath floppy disc adapter to transfer files to PC, (I'm still using win 95) which is quite quick.
Excerpt: This is a very stylish and great looking digi cam. It offers great functionality and comes equipped with a 2 MB smart media card. The MX-500 offers excellent quality as it can take snap shots at over 1.5 million pixels. This I perhaps more than you and I really need, but for the pro’s this is nothing they would require at least 3 million pixels. This cam has red eye reduction, as you would expect from any quality camera. As well as a flash with sensor on board.
Excerpt: this is a great digi cam, with excellent results. it has 1.5 million pixels which is more than enough. the smart cvard it comes with cannot even hold more than 18 pictures. when i bought it, it was £400, i regret purchasing it. it is easy to use, but also lacks features. the manual it comes with is not very thick. on the back there is a 3 inch screen, which doesnt have a shutter, and can be scratched easily. it does not come witha carry case either.
Excerpt: I bought my Fujifilm MX500 when myself and my partner purchased a PC. The complete kit consists of the camera, software CD and download cable, including an adaptor for Macs. the camera itself is a self focussing device about 5"x3"x1", and is quite light. It feels a little fragile, but is sturdier than it looks. it comes complete with a 2Mb card, which allows 21 pictures on a normal quality picture, but only 5 on high quality.
Excerpt: I chose a Fuji camera because it had been recommended to me. This advice has proved correct , for the price , I paid £250 , it achieves high quality pictures , you would normally have to pay a great deal more for. The major drawback with the camera is the connection to your computer , processing pictures takes about a minute and a half , this can be circumvented by buying a card reader howver.
Excerpt: I bought the MX500 camera for a holiday to France. It was on offer at Dixons at the time and recognising the Fuji Name I decided to buy it. The connection to the computer is the basic serial connection which is not the speediest of links, in fact it could have done with being a USB. Downloading off just the 2MB Smartmedia card supplied with it can allow you to make a cup of tea. The other gripe I have with it is the lack of supplied mains power adapter.
Digitale Fotografie einfach gemacht! Die MX-500 ist komplett ausgestattet. Fuji MX 500

Excerpt: Digital, genial, phänomenal, maximal! Das sind die ersten Worte die mir zu dieser Kamera einfallen. Die Digitalkamera MX-500 von Fujifilm ist ein einfach zu bedienen, macht gute Bilder und hat viele nützliche Funktionen.
Pros: Sehr gute Bildqualität, einfache Bedienung, ausführliche Bedienungsanleitung, Speichermedien einfach zu bekommen.
Cons: Datenübertragung zum PC nur über serielle Schnittstelle, daher sehr langsam.
Excerpt: Die Kamera macht recht gute Bilder (im Freien). Die Auflösung von 1,5 Megapixeln ist recht gut. Bei der Datenkomprimierung sollte man am besten "basic" einstellen. Dann verbraucht ein einziges Bild nur noch ca. 200 KB. Der Qualitätsunterschied ist nicht zu sehen, schon gar nicht wenn man die Fotos ausdruckt. So bekommt man auf eine 16 MB Karte knapp 100 Bilder. Innenaufnahmen kommen nicht so gut, vor allem mit Biltz.
