Minolta 5000i 35m

Hi I am Loretta
I have purchase a couple years ago a Minolta 5000i and for the life of me even on the minota web site cannot find any information about my camera.
Are you familiar with it?
It has a place for a card, but I have no clue what kind of card it takes or where to get one. Another thing is what all kind of lenses can I use on my camera other than zoom or fish eye?
Yes, as you can tell I am a beginner.
Thank you let me know if you can help

The i-series Maxxums were the 2nd generation of Minolta auto focus SLRs. They had cards for various shooting modes beyond what you could set on the camera. It is not a slot for memory cards like the newer digital cameras. The slot was also the access point for a repair tool to adjust the cameras internal settings of speed and exposure,

The repair tool used to do this was: An original GameBoy...

You can use any lens made for Minolta AF. Latest models of the lenses will not work properly since they have more features than your 5000i is capable of, i.e. power assisted zoom..

Hi, i have a minolta 5000i and the indicator on the screen keeps indicating that i have the film in wrong. I have my owners manuale and loading the film is dummy proof but the camera wont pick up the film....

Your 5000i is one of the 2nd generation auto focus SLRs Minolta released in the early 90s. They no longer supply parts or service for this model. If there is a mechanical problem with the film transport, it is likely beyond hope. You can use any lenses for it on similar Minoltas like the 300Si/450Si series which came after yours. These are available usually on sites like eBay for a very low price. I would even consider looking on sites like for something local.

I have a Minolta Maxxum 5000i. It is dead

Check to see if there is a button battery in another compartment. Usually the "big" battery is for the flash and some other functions but there may be another one that serves basic functions like aperture and shutter operation.

Minolta maxxum 5000i

It may be worth the effort to try one more battery. Lithium batteries may show good on a tester or meter but still be too weak to power a camera. A good photo store should let you try the battery before you purchase it.
