Question about Minolta Dynax 404Si Film Camera
Generally when a camera refuses to take the photo is because you are operating beyond its expected lighting settings. If you are on automatic, it will just flash a light at you, or give you some indication it is beyond the limits of that setting. Try manual, or some other setting like landscape, or backlight. Generally this will happen on automatic settings.
Film? Try the f16 rule. In broad daylight, the rule is use f-16 and a shutter speed that matches your film's asa. So 100 ASA film? Shoot the sunset at 100th at f-16. Darker, open it up two or three stops. f-11, 8, or 5.6.
Bottom line, make sure you are on manual. The problem is likely an automatic exposure.
