Question about Konica Minolta Maxxum 3Xi 35mm SLR Camera
i have a minolta maxxum stsi that i have had for about 8 yrs. i have never had anything go wrong until about a month ago. i had about 4 rolls of film developed and they all came back panaramic style, i did not shoot them this way and there was no problem at the printers. as far as i know i dont even have a panaramic setting on my camera. could you please tell me if you have any idea what could be causing this. thank-you.

Double check your camera as this model did have a panoramic version available and you had a lever on the side of the camera to select normal/panoramic.
If this is not the case you may have a problem with the shutter on your camera.
Check on the negative and if the exposed part runs is the lower third of the negative it is a shutter problem and needs to be looked at by a repair tech, if the exposed part of the neg is even and runs through the middle of the frame. I am pretty sure you have a panoramic camera and you would just need to switch it off
