Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 Digital Camera
My 3 year old DiMage Z5 has taken brilliant photos and wonderful video up to this point. Recently, I have seen a dark smudge in the upper right corner of the viewfinder which diminishes as I zoom in. This smudge translates to the photo. Can you give me an idea of what might be the problem, how to resolve it or where I can send the camera for repair if necessary? Thank!
Hi, I have the same black area in the corner of my shot, and 'fluttering' on turning the camera on. Have called Jessops and a local independent camera shop. Both have told me that Minolta have been bought by Sony, and as such, there is no support for the Minolta cameras, which is very poor. Also, the price of cameras has come down so much over the last few years, that it is cheaper to buy a replacement than to attempt to have it repaired. A Fuji Finepix S5700 was suggested by my independant shop...does a similar job to the Dimage and costs £99. I was quoted £125 to have the Dimage looked at by Jessops! It's a no-brainer for me, although very annoying as I love my Dimage.
Hope this helps a little.

The odds are you have a broken spring in the anti-shake assembly which has allowed the lens unit to shift to one side. The smudge you are seeing is the edge of the lens housing and will have a slight rounded shape. As you zoom in, you are extending the lens past this area so it no longer shows.
