Was getting ready to pack up all the old Vectis lenses I had accumulated for my s-1 when I found out that minolta made a digital SLR that accepts the lenses. I bought a refurbished unit on Ebay, waited eagerly for it to show up and when I loaded it with batteries and a brand new CF card. I found that the display didn't work- It showed the frame number and thedate but just a blank (blue) screen instead of the picture.
I should mention at this point that the camera takes pretty good pictures.... THe display is the only part that appears to be operating impropery.
I compained to the company I bought it from and they agreed to replace it. When the replacement showed up, it had the exact same problem. Now I am beginning to think it is a user error, or perhaps an incompatability problem with my CF card.
anyone have any thoughts?
