We need far more information - lens in use, shutter speed and aperture settings, white balance setting, ISO setting, exposure compensation, lighting conditions, subject matter etc. All of these have a bearing on exposure. From your description, it sounds as if your images are seriously under exposed. Have you looked in the trouble-shooting section of the camera manual ?

Are you saying that on the same card, you are able to view other pictures you took but new pictures appear black? (or is this happening on different cards?)

Developed film pictures have black around the edges


My guess would be that whatever lens your using is causing that. The black edges are basically caused because the lens may not be fit the camera correctly, causing the camera to "see" part of the lens itself when taking a photo.

Camera shoots all the film then rewinds.


Repair would be at least $139 from Blue Moon Camera. I would buy another MZ-50 (ZX-50 is the same) off eBay or you could buy a ZX-30 from Blue Moon Camera for $75 with 1 year warranty. They are professional.
