Maxxum 5D "First Black Frame" Problem
8 months ago
So I'm new here and have a question about my Maxxum 5D. For years, it's had the dreaded "First Black Frame" issue that seems to plague a lot of Maxxum cameras (or so I've been told by a local camera shop specialist and the internet at large). Anyway, I kinda love my 5D and was wondering if this is an issue that is going to get worse over time or not.
At the moment, it's just kind of inconvenient. I have to take a first shot, which inevitably turns out black if I haven't used the camera for a while, then turn it off and back on again. After that, everything works fine.
But is there a chance that this could turn into something worse? Will my camera eventually stop working altogether? I've had it for about 3 years now (got it as a hand me down from my brother, who bought it when it was first released) and by the time I realized it was a problem, Sony no longer offered to fix it.
Thanks for any help guys!
