There is a large triangular object in the bottom range of my viewfinder. This is a Minolta XL400 that was just shipped to me.

Any ideas as to how to remedy this?lensprob.JPG

I need a bit more info. Are you showing me a frame from an actual piece of super-8 film that was shot and developed through your camera? If not, that round blue object might have something to do with if film is running through the camera or if you are over or underexposed, or maybe some other camera function.

If it is when something you see through the viewfinder, does it blink when the camera is running, does it change shape or size at any time?

Actually after some research I figured out that its an over/under exposure warning. Thanks!
