Beautifully restored rare black-body Fujica ST801 fitted with a new genuine leather cover. One of the most popular and well known Fujica film cameras featuring M42 screw mount - perfect for Takumars and other manual focus lenses. Full range of mechanical shutter speeds (battery is not required!), split-prism focusing screen, built-in self timer, TTL metering (no stop-down necessary with Fujinon lenses) and gorgeous LED light meter indication in the viewfinder. Fujica ST series are well known for robust operation and a very "dark" (well light-proofed) mirror box, which helps with contrast.
Shutter, meter, film transport and timer all work properly. Meter accuracy was not verified with film. Brand new light seals and mirror guard were installed ($25 value).
Very good, no major dents. Minor brassing throughout and some scratches on the bottom. Small dent on the left side of the top. Minor discoloration on the shutter curtain. Focusing screen and viewfinder are bright and clear, with just a couple of tiny specs of dust (will not affect shooting in any way). Original leatherette was professionally replaced with genuine black pigskin leather.
