Just got two rolls back, and they both have this intermittent black area on the side of *some* of the images. Some of the landscape orientation images have it, and none of the portrait orientation images have it. Any ideas? I'm using a Minolta SRT SC ii. Previous three rolls did not have this issue.

As others have alluded to, it is shutter capping. The second curtain is catching up with the first curtain. It should only affect shots over 1/125, but is likely worse the faster speed you use.
