Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200 Digital Camera

Open Question

I have a Minolta DiMAGE A200 that shakes when starting up and anti-shake will not turn on. (Icon is always red)

I just received this camera from my mother, after my father passed away. He used the camera once and it's been in a box since. I just recently took it out and started using it. Everything was fine, took over 100 pictures, turned if off the other night. As soon as I turned it on today, the screen/lens shakes and sounds like it's trying to adjust, stops and functions fine.... except the anti-shake icon is always red in EVERY mode. I press the anti-shake button to engage, and nothing happens.

The tracking servo motors and associated gears are damaged or misaligned. The purpose of these servos are to automatically adjust the lens positioning so that it seems the camera is almost stationary. When the anti shake is enabled, the lens locks onto a target and if the target moves, the servos move the lens to compensate for the offset. If you are experiencing screen shaking it means that the lens is trying to adjust but cannot because the servo system is damaged. It's quite possible that only one servo motor is functioning and the other is loose. It will require in shop repair.

I have a Kinica z5 camera with anti shake. The problem is almost all pictures are blurry.


With autofocus digital cameras, blurred photos are almost always a result of camera shake. You need to hold the camera still even after pressing the button, as there is often a short delay before the shutter fires.

Many digital cameras have a two-stage shutter press- first pressure causes the camera to focus, then the follow through pressure takes the picture. If you are rushing this, you may get unfocussed shots.

Finally, make sure that you have not left the camera in Macro mode. This is a special extreme close-up mode offered by some cameras, and it does not allow autofocus on objects at normal distances. The icon for Macro mode is a little flower. Some cameras have a "face recognition" mode that tries to find a face in the shot and focus on that, so check your autofocus modes to see if it is set to something odd like that.

The images that I take are blurred


On almost all newer cameras there is an anti-shake feature. AND it is almost always turned off by default. Go through your camera menus and look for anti blurr or anti shake, the icon is usually a hand or person with lines "moving" outside it (to represent shaking). Good Luck!

Shutter is delayed and pictures are blurry


Check the anti-shake setting and turn it off to see if that is a problem. Batteries can affect that mode as well.

Konica Minolta Dimage Damage


I had the same problem with mine, a minor fall cracked this, I disassembled the unit and one of the springs that hold the main sensor was broken, thus the sensor vibrates instead of "floating" when the camera is turned on. There are two possible solutions: The first is to get a faulty Z6 from eBay and get the parts (the main sensor assembly) and have it replaced. (If you are not comfortable working with 1mm screws, you'd better go with the parts to a camera repair shop and explain them the problem. The second solution is un-elegant but useful: If you disconnect the anti-shake circuit from the main board you won't have the annoying vibration at start, and the focus will work properly. I've done this and I am happy with the result (I rarely used the anti-shake feature, so I don't miss it). For reference, the anti-shake circuit ribbon is the one entering the mainboard just under the left side of the screen.

Ejoy.....
PS. if you have dark spots, chech that the sensor assembly is not too out of place or that a piece of the broken assembly is on the way. Realign it in place (and please don't touch it). and asseble tha camera back

How fast is the time lag for shutter release?


Approximately 0.06 sec. (From when the shutter-release button is pressed down to when the exposure starts.) Conditions: Motion 60 fps live view, M mode (SS:1/30, f/2.8), after MF or single shot AF, and anti-shake off
