20 Most Recent Konica Minolta Maxxum QTsi with 35-80 lens 35mm Film Camera Questions & Answers


No. Duct tape will hold the battery but it won't make contact. Without something connecting that end of the battery to the circuitry in the camera, you may as well leave it empty.

Remove the lens and then look through the viewfinder at a blank wall or out a window (not directly into the sun!). Do you still get the red hue? (Nothing will be in focus. Don't worry about that. We just want to see if the color is still there.)

The Konica Minolta Maxxum QTsi is a nice SLR camera that can accept a wide range of 35mm films. You can buy 35mm films from Kodak, Fujifilm and many other companies.

They're temporarily out of stock, but they may have one soon.

Did it sit for years with batteries in it? You may need to clean corrosion off the battery contacts. Even alkalines and rechargeables can leak.

OK, so we know that the film transport motor is not dead. That's a good thing.
When I have that problem with my HTsi or XTsi, I try several ways of placing the film leader on the take-up roller. Also be sure that the take-up roller is clean or it will not grab the film. I also have a TEST roll. I put it in cameras to be sure its grabbing film.
RARE, but it can happen...film can refuse to come out of the canister. Take it into a room tonight, turn out the light so you do not expose the film, and try pulling the film out. Use the knob to rewind it before you turn on the light.
Meantime, try another film roll
NOT likely, but possible - Film advance motor running but take-up spool not turning. This means a trip to repair shop. Since the QTsi/STsi/HTsi and XTsi are not that expensive on Ebay these days, get one as a parts donor/ spare camera. The other models will give you more choices. HTsi and XTsi have 3 AF sensors.

Carry one of your lenses to a camera store and ask them to let you compair it with one for a Maxxum.

The Sony Alpha / Konica / Minolta mount is called a TYPE A bayonette mount. google the Maxxum and see if it accepts the TYPE A mount.

I think you mean Landscape. Just push the button next to the top display panel. Push it again until it shows the setting you want.
Panorama is not available on the QTsi. Panorama mode blocks out the top and bottom of the frame to give you a shorter picture top to bottom.
Landscape mode just biases the camera towards smaller lens openings to get more of the image in focus. By default, this makes exposure times longer, so use a tripod for landscape images.

I'm assuming you're not able to shoot pics. Its my best guess that the film just isn't getting loaded properly. Next time you attempt to load film there maybe a small red mark near the take spool (bottom edge where film goes) to indicate how far you need to pull the leader forward toward take up spool. I think the film isn't out quite far enough for the camera to do its auto load thing & when you close the back it goes thru its auto loading motions but the film just isn't getting loaded. Then close back & see what happens.

Oddly enough, the camera and lens are working just fine now - or at least they appear to be. I'll shoot some more when I have good lighting and 1-hour them tomorrow for the results.

These use two of the L44 common button battery. The + sides of the battery (flat) goes towards the body ... the bump goes towards the battery holder. Check the contacts on the body and where the threads (-) contact the body. Not voltage, no work. Assuming you have 4 different batteries, can you check the batteries ? One bad one of two will not allow voltage. I have bought new button batteries that were dead right from the package. Strange two cameras are dead. They have electronic shutters. The LED should light up in the viewfinder when the shutter is slightly pressed.

If you have manual focus Minolta lenses, then they are not usable on anything other than other manual focus M35mm Minolta SLR's.

If they have the Minolta autofocus mount then they will physically fit onto any of the current range of Sony Alpha SLR's and also the discontinued Konica Minolta digital SLR's, but there will be some issues:-
  • there will be a 1.5x magnification factor due to picture cropping caused by the digital image sensor being smaller than a 35mm film frame. As an example, a 70-200mm zoom lens will produce an image equivalent to that of a 105-300mm lens if mounted on a 35mm camera. Lens apertures are not affected by the 1.5 crop factor.
  • Earlier Minolta AF lenses relied on the camera body providing the autofocus motor. Later Konica-Minolta and Sony models lack this motor so the lens can only be used in manual focus mode.
  • If you have a later SSM (SuperSonic Motor) equipped lens and want to use it on an Minolta Alpha/Maxxum/Dynax 9 (different model names in different countries), the camera needs a complete additional circuit board which is no longer available.
  • Later Sony Alpha SLR's have far greater electronic communication with the lenses used. Many Minolta lenses will not be compatible and as Sony don't support legacy products there is no fix.
In short, Minolta MD lenses (manual focus) can't practically be used on any modern digital cameras, and Minolta Alpha (autofocus) lenses will physically fit onto a Sony Alpha digital SLR, but will act as if magnified and may not autofocus or work at all on a Sony SLR. But there's no harm in trying.

Sorry there is no absolutely definitive answer for you, but I hope that you now understand why and that you take a moment to rate my reply.
