The blinking zero would indicate that the film has not loaded but the cartridge is in place. The camera won't do anything when this occurs. Try opening the film door and load the roll again

Hi, I have the same black area in the corner of my shot, and 'fluttering' on turning the camera on. Have called Jessops and a local independent camera shop. Both have told me that Minolta have been bought by Sony, and as such, there is no support for the Minolta cameras, which is very poor. Also, the price of cameras has come down so much over the last few years, that it is cheaper to buy a replacement than to attempt to have it repaired. A Fuji Finepix S5700 was suggested by my independant shop...does a similar job to the Dimage and costs £99. I was quoted £125 to have the Dimage looked at by Jessops! It's a no-brainer for me, although very annoying as I love my Dimage.
Hope this helps a little.

I need the brand new price for a minolta riva zoom 70 af please


These have not been sold new for a while (in the UK).

Do you mean the price of an equivalent camera, or the price (some years ago) when you could buy it new, and in which part of the world.

You can get a lot of them "as new" - from £5 - £20 (inc shipping) on eBay .. for example ....

http://shop.ebay.co.uk/?_from=R40&_trksid=m38&_nkw=minolta+riva+zoom+70

Local charity shops int the UK would have a price tag of £1 - £5 on it nowadays ,and not expect it to sell. Film cameras have died a death here, and this minolta was never a top rated model.

When I push the button to take a photo, the camera


Sounds like a broken gear or linking arm. It will cost as much to fix as to replace. You now have a very nice Minolta paperweight, lol.
Those neat little film cameras are now a thing of the Ebay, LOL. Since many are dumping them for digital, they're quite available at good prices now.

Cameras compatible with Quantaray AF 70-300mm lens


Depending on how new your Minolta SLR film camera was, the lens may or may not work on a Minolta Digital SLR. In many cases, a lens with the correct mount (in this case, a Minolta mount) can be used on the same brand of camera in the digital format.

One thing you should know is that DSLR sensors are, generally speaking, smaller than the size of a 35mm film negative. Long story short, that means that your lens will have a magnification factor on the DSLR. Usually, it is in the range of 150%, so a 70-300 lens from a film camera would cover 105 to 450 on a Digital SLR.

To be sure about the mount, you'll need to seek advice specific to Minoltas -- probably best to take your lens to a local camera shop and see for sure if it fits and what features will work (aperature, auto-focus, etc) and which won't work on the DSLR.

MINOLTA 16mm CAMERAS From their modest beginnings after World War Two, the Minolta subminiature format rose to become the most popular Japanese 16mm, still-picture manufacturer and helped Minolta establish itself as a major player in the photographic industry. The revolutionary Minolta cassette is the closest the subminiature market ever came to a "standard" 16mm film format and it was copied by many other camera companies, even outside of Japan. With the exception of the Minox cassette, it is the long-distance runner of the submini world; Minolta manufactured and sold its film cassettes until 1995, and replicas are still being made in the Ukraine and China (?), today. Fortunately, even the older cameras are still very useable since the Minolta cassette used 16mm film (which is still readily available), and they did not require perforations in the film to advance the film. They are very easy to reload. Check out The Darkroom for details.
The original Minolta 16mm camera was designed by the Konan Institute and used the original Konan cassette. This cassette will not fit in any of the Minolta cameras -- or at least cameras with the Minolta name, since Minolta ended up making many cameras with the Konan name. Basically, Minolta bought-out Konan. When Minolta took over, they redesigned the cassette using black felt for the light trap. There were actually several versions, nearly identical. The first was metal, but this was soon replaced with the more standard plastic type -- of which there were several versions. Minolta made two plastic models, identical except that on the second version a notch or indentation was cut into the cassette bridge to make it easier to break off the film take-up lobe for processing purposes. (If you have the newer version it's a good idea to fill in the notch with a little epoxy to make it last longer.) To complicate matters even more, similar cassettes were made by other companies, such as Yashica (which sold a camera that used the Minolta cassette), a company called FR (which sold the film and offered processing), and others. The Minolta cassettes are fairly easy to find today, and will fit in all of the cameras on this list. They will NOT fit in Mica and Konan.cameras. To top it all off, there are even bogus Minolta cassettes being sold. For more information check out the NEWSTAND.

Panoramic pictures??


A panoramic photo on 35mm film is just cutting off the top and bottom. even if you can't set the camera that way, you can ask your local photo store to print any shot that way for you. Usually 2x the price of 4x6.
