Memory card for older camera

I was given the Minolta Maxxum 5 xi by my dad. He never used it. I read on the net it could take a memory card and I was able to find the memory card spot on my camera- I just need to know what size or do I have to order it special?

Hey ForestFamily,
This camera has the capability to use what are called creative expansion cards. These cards are not memory cards since this is a film camera. Creative expansion cards set the camera for a specific shooting situation and reconfigure the cameras' controls so it can best achieve your desired result. These cards are no longer being made, but you can find them for sale on different websites used. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Where do you insert a sim card into a minolta maxxum 5 camera


Cameras, especially film cameras, do not use "SIM" cards. There were some models of Minolta film cameras that used exposure cards for auto-settings but only cellular phones and devices with cellular interfaces (iPads) use SIM cards. Here's a copy of the Maxxum 5 manual if that helps.

Konica lenses do not fit Minolta cameras. I think you messed something up.

Minolta MC and MD lenses worked on the older manual focus Minolta bodies. They will also work on the Phoenix and Seagull clones of the old Minolta bodies.

The Konica lens should only ever be mounted on a Konica camera.

Your 7000i is now a Minolta paperweight. You need to send your 7000i for repair or replace it.

You could also look on Ebay for another Maxxum body to use your lenses designed for the Minolta A mount. As a rule, camera lenses are not interchangeable. You can use any Maxxum lens on any Maxxum body as a rule, but Minolta changed their flash shoe after the original 7000 series. Flashes that work with your 7000i will work with any subsequent Maxxum.

Autofocus doesn't work on maxxum 5000i


Auto focus makes noise? Its been jarred outa position or tiny mirror behind main mirror outa alignment. AF silent? AF module needs replaced = repair shop. Considering what you'll pay for the repair, buy another Maxxum on Ebay for less and give the 5000 to a repair guy for parts to repair others. That generates goodwill with the repair guy. Maybe a discount on a future repair, and get you a newer Maxxum with better AF, more features, less weight, it will use all your current stuff except flash, and you'll save $$ over the repair price. Look for a 500xi, 700 xi, 50, 70, 5, XTsi or HTsi.

Can't format memory card on maxxum 5D


  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    Is there a micro focus switch on the lens
    On my lens if switch to Micro Mode the Auto focus is disabled, Also it is a stupid question but you are using a AF lens and not a xi series or manual focus lens.
