Question about Konica Minolta Maxxum 70 QD with 28-100 lens 35mm Film Camera

1 Answer

My camera wont focus and I cannot read the text in the viewfinde. At first I thought it was just me but my husband says he cannot see it focus either. I also have another lens I tried with it so I think it's in the body of the cam. I hope its simple, but I cannot figure it out. Thanks for any suggestions.

The camera is probably ok.
It is probably the diopter setting.
To the left of the eyepiece, there is a + - scale ...
Turn the setting all the way to either + or to the - just to check which is better for you.
Maybe midway to the + will work best.
This adjusts the eyepiece focusing, not the camera lens.

I hope this helps!

Blurred LCD screen = Blurred taken picture


Still I think your CCD or CMOS sensor is damaged. The viewfinder, is just a set of lenses, where you can see through. It has no connection with the sensor. These type of camera's also use the sensor to focus. The sensor needs things with some contrast, where it should focus. But when the sensor is not working correct, the camera can't focus, or take a sharp picture. On your screen you just see what the sensor can record. Nothing more, nothing less.
I don't think it is worth repairing the camera, because this will cost more than you pay for a new camera, with better specs.
Sorry I can't help you with this.

Can you check that you haven't moved the little toggle switch on the side of the 4-way controller/wheel to the L (or Lock) position? If it's locked then you won't be able to move the focus field in the viewfinder.

There's a diopter adjustment knob above and right of the viewfinder. Turn the knob while peering through the viewfinder until it comes into focus.

I have just started using my husband Pentax K100D camera. The viewfinder seems really dark. My camers is a Fujifilm S5700 that seems to have a lighted viewfinder. Is there any way to make the viewfinder...


The best way to lighten the viewfinder is to purchase a new focusing screen. There are many alternatives available and usually cost around $100. There are specialty screens to allow better manual focusing and others that brighten the viewfinder. These effects are usually achieved through coatings on the screen. They are relatively simple to install, however if you are uncomfortable doing it yourself, a local camera shop should be able to do it in a matter of minutes.
This screen will allow better focusing of manual lenses and will also brighten the viewfinder, when you purchase the "Brightness enhancement treatment" option at the bottom of the page. http://www.katzeyeoptics.com/item--Pentax-K100D-K110D-K200D-K-r-K-x-Focusing-Screen--prod_K100D.html
The linked product also fits your camera, and the brand is highly regarded as being good quality. There are other options available though, simply search on B&H Photo Video or Adorama Camera. They have many different options.

First make sure that the viewfinder glass is clean. If that is not the problem, it may be that the diopter adjustment has been accidentally changed. On the right side of the viewfinder screen is a very small knob. This adjusts the focus of the viewfinder to your vision. Aim your camera at a stationary object and let the camera auto focus. Look throught the viewfinder and turn this knob one click at a time until the image is clearest to you. Hope this helps.

Rebel 350d - i press button 1/2 way and it auto focuses but wont take pic when presses the rest of the way. every once and a while it will take a pic.any thoughts?


it won't take the picture until the focus is not confirmed (big dot lights up in the lower right side of the viewfinder) even though the button is pressed all the way down.
tamron lenses are notorious for slow (noisy) auto focus, so you have to be patient when focusing and half press repeatedly several times before it locks down, confirmes the focus and takes the picture.

Blured viewfinder


Look at the viewfinder on the camera.

Now look on the LEFT side of the viewfinder; just above the swivel-screen.

You will see a little thumb wheel there.

That is the focus for the viewfinder. Move it up and down to bring the viewfinder into focus. (Don't forget to do this while you are looking through the viewfinder so you can see what you are adjusting.)

Easy fix. :)
