Just bought an A1 on ebay, problems......OPINIONS?
Nov 26, 2010

This camera was suppose to be in mint condition. There are two dings on the lens and some superficial scratches. The major problems: The anti-shake light continuously blinks rapidly in every mode. When I first turn on the camera, there is a grinding noise and the LCD shakes and then it settles down. I've had 4 A1's and never encountered this. I wonder if one of the problems is an impending CCD failure. I paid $75 for the camera, guess it was too good to be true.

I took several test shots, have seen much better. some are in a .THM format where a picture doesn't show up in the thumbnail and when I click on it, it's a tiny image.
Minolta A1
