    Minolta 9 shutter button replacement

    I just got a Minolta 9 with the SSM upgrade, but it appears the seller did not mention the shutter button was missing. I could return it, but it is very hard to find these with the upgrade. Anyone know where I can get a replacement? The mechanism works fine, the button is just missing.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    You can try to contact Sony or former Minolta repair service center, they will probably have a replacement.
    If not, try to get a second body and remove the button.

    The SSM upgrade its still available, see here for further information.

    Problem solved. I found the original button on the floor under the table. It must have come loose during delivery and fallen out of the box when I unwrapped the camera.

    Let us know when your heart stops beating in your throat.

    On the other hand, you now know about where to go for the upgrade.

    Vitor, thank you providing the link to the Dyxum Forum (www.dyxum.com) and the information about the Minolta Maxxum 9/Dynax 9 IC-1 Chip Upgrade for use with the Sony SSM lenses.

    The guys at Runtime seem to have become the world's main service center for the Minolta Maxxum 9.
    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."
