    I have a Minolta Maxxum 5000i. I had a roll of film come back and one
    of the prints came out panorama, What the heck happened. I read the
    manual from beginning to end and can't explain. I have taken tons of
    photos with this thing and it has never happened before. I am pushing
    every button and setting under the sun and can't figure it out.
    I have a Maxxum AF Zoom 35 80mm lense.

    Any ideas?

  2. I have a Minolta Maxxum 5000i. I had a roll of film come back and one
    Yes. Talk to the poeple that processed your film - I think someone was
    being artistic..

    AFAIK, the 5000i did not have *any* sort of panorama function. I never
    owned one, but nearly bought one once, and at that time looked into it
    pretty closely. So I'll be surprised if I missed that 'feature'. (I
    always thought panorama functions on 35mm film cameras were for point
    and shoots aimed at people who didn't realise that they simply cropped
    the view....)

    Look at the negative for that image. It could be the processor
    misinterpreted a frame as being a panorama (cropped exposure) frame.

    Sounds like some idiot at the photo shop screwed up. I took a roll of
    Fujicolor in for processing. When I went to pick it up the whole roll had
    been processed as panoramas and the charge was about $40. "Whats this?", I
    said, "I didn't order any panoramas." "Well, you must have set the camera
    for panorama because thats what our machine printed." "Listen up... these
    photos were taken on a 1960's Canon rangefinder... it has NO SETTINGS except
    f-stop and shutter speed." They had to eat the photos and reprint the entire
    order. I dont appreciate being talked down to by a 19 year old moron
