Last week KonDimage A2  characteristic or problem?
« on: December 06, 2004, 12:38:09 PM »

I've had an A2 for 6 months or so and not had these problems. However, I set the AS to only be active during exposure instead of continuously. See page 143 of the manual...

Last week KonDimage A2  characteristic or problem?
« Reply #1 on: December 06, 2004, 07:42:03 AM »

Last week Konica Minolta replaced my A2, under guarantee,
after failing to rectify a recurring fault condition despite replacing 4 pcbs. Of my 6 month ownership, 2 have been resident with service dept.
The faults experienced were overheating of the camera body, especially around the hand grip, which eventually caused the camera to freeze. Reset could only be achieved by dropping the battery out. During the heating up process, which  occurs after  approx. 10 mins of continuous "power on", the anti shake becomes unstable  as does the  auto focus  noticeably  at  about 1-2 meters  halfway through the magnification range ( +/- 80mm).

Unfortunately the replacement camera, in early testing, now appears to be reproducing the same overheating status.

Has anyone else experienced similar problems with this Model?
and if so is this an inconvenient “characteristic”?
