Video camera cloudy image

Camera: Minolta master C-512VHS-C video camera

Problem: Has not been used in 12 months. Looks cloudy ( dark clouds)when viewed thru viewfinder and the recorded image is the same. Kind of has the appearance of a mirror when the mirror silver has gone bad. Can this be remedied and if it requires repair, can you advise as to the approx. cost. Thanks Chris

Dark, cloudy viewing 35-135mm Sigma lens


The problem sounds like the camera did not reset properly after the last exposure. Minolta deigned the camera to keep the aperture fully open except during exposure.
During exposure it snaps the aperture down to the selected opening, then opens it again to allow enough light for proper focusing. If it did not fully open the blades after the shot, much less light would pass through the lens. The viewfinder would be darker and look murky.
Most likely cause? Dried up lubricants in the camera.
Next likely cause? Teeth broken on a plastic gear.
Get it to a camera repair place. Get estimates first.

Image through nikon f80 dark and cloudy


I'm unfamiliar with the F80 but on models like the f65 and f75 the viewfinder screen has an lcd overlay and when the battery is exhausted or removed the viewfinder goes dark and blurry.

Looking at a picture of the f80 it looks like it's just an update on my f75 so it strongly suggests that you just need to insert a fresh battery. The lcd does draw power from the battery even with the camera turned off.

I hope that you found my answer useful, once you've tried another battery to confirm what I've suggested I'd appreciate it if you return the favour by rating my answer.

Dark screen on my video-camera Canon MV700i


I have the same problem, it appears that this camera is one of many cameras that have problems with the CCD (image sensor) have a look at this site for more info www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html

I hadn't used mine for about 9 months, when I went to use it the screen was black with a bit of flicker. Canon are still fixing them if you're from the UK have a peep here - https://self-service.canon-europe.com/uk/pages/

Hope that helps

DARK PICTURES


I am afraid the shutter is faulty, which means it does not get enough light from the image, however it will still print the image but not in natural light, battery is not an issue here, you can try changing new battery but i don't think the image will change, the bottom line is the camera is faulty and tell the seller for refund if possible.

Minolta Maxxum 450si - dark images through view finder


The aperture mechanism needs repair - though most parts are no longer available because Sony purchased Minolta, this is a problem that can be repaired by a competent independent repair shop.
