Replacing the IR-block filter of a Minolta Dynax 7D


I have lost some of my notes, so therefore only a photo series for this camera. It may help anyways. the basic procedure for this camera is:

  • Remove the Back
  • Lift up the top and remove the back part of the chassis
  • Loosen the four screws on the sensor and lift the sensor out
  • Replace the filter and put back together again

This is a fairly easy camera to handle, but don't overtighten the sensor screws when putting it back together as this may cause errors related to the sensor stabalisation.


Some more helpfull information on the construction of this camera and the positions of all screws etc. can be found in this Repair Guide .

Good Luck!
