Question about Konica Minolta Dynax 5D / Maxxum 5D Digital Camera

2 Answers

Hi!! I inherited a Konica Dynax Maxxum 5D it takes great pictures, but I can't figure out how to get the LCD monitor to show the picture I am taking...it is on a blue screen with functions and settings, but I can't find where in those settings to change it back to seeing the view by looking at the screen, I always have to look through the view finder to shoot a pic. Hope you can help, Thanks a lot, Cath

To see the picture you want to take on the screen, your camera needs to have a feature called "live view". I'm not sure if your camera has that feature. It's a relatively new feature on more expensive cameras. Check your owner's manual.

Without sounding cheeky I don't know what the other reply is talking about as I have a camera which is 6 years old and was not that expensive and I can view what I'm taking on the LCD screen. The link below provides a manual for your camera which should show you how to do this and I'm sure will come in useful for other things too

two reasons for this are possible:
1) you changed the exposure compensation by mistake to minus something... - see below - change it again to +- zero:

I could not find a Konica Minolta Model DG-5D camera listed on the support web pages.
I did find a "DYNAX5D/Maxxum5D" that had driver software for Windows 98/98se.
If you're using XP or later, these drivers probably won't help you though.
Can you confirm the model number?

My Monolta Dynax 5D judders on startup, then the shake reduction display flashes then it wont take pictures or turn off. It just shows br1 in viewfinder display


It would appear from other sites and users that the anti-shake mech has failed and the cost to repair outweighs the value so I will stick with my SonyA700, sell the lenses and filters I dont need and scrap the body. Thanks for the reply.

Out of funcion


This is a known issue with a fault with the charged couple device CCD.  If you contact Konica Minolta / Sony in your city they should replace it as a recall.

Lack of image


There is a known problem with the 7D and some early 5D's where sometimes when you turn the camera on and take a picture it is all black and the camera locks up. You can turn it off and back on and the problem goes away for awhile. Don't know if this is what ou are experiencing. If it is, Sony (who bought out Konica Minolta's camera division) will fix the problem for free. Just had this repaired on my 7D.

Konica Minolta Dynax 5D/Maxxum 5D turns itself off after first shoot


It sounds like that's the first black frame problem that is a fairly common defect with the cameras, so much so that Sony is repairing it for free, for more info, see:

http://ca.konicaminolta.com/information/20070202/01_en.html

then go to:

http://eservice.sony.com/webrma/web/index.do to set up for service.

Camera freezes after taking picture


Shooting in the dark here, but the basic things you should try before all else is another mem card, and new compatible batteries. sounds more like a card problem though. hope it works out
