Fujica ST801 Black
Rare black-body Fujica ST801 in excellent serviced condition. Probably the most popular and highly rated camera in Fujica ST series. Revolutionary at the time, LED meter display in the viewfinder and a full range of mechanical shutter speeds. This camera will work wonderfully with Takumars and other high-quality M-42 (Pentax) screw-mount manual focus lenses. Fujica ST series are well known for robust operation and a very "dark" (well light-proofed) mirror box, which helps with contrast. Full user manual can be found at Butkus.org.
Shutter, meter, film transport and self-timer work properly (accuracy of the meter has not been verified with film). Brand new light seals and mirror guard were installed.
EXC. No dents or other significant cosmetic blemishes. Some brassing on the film door frame. Focusing screen and viewfinder are bright with just a couple small specs of dust (will not affect operation in any way). Original leatherette is in excellent shape.
- Fujinon 55mm f/1.8 prime lens. EXC+ condition, scratch-free glass, no fungus. Aperture is dry and snappy. Focus is smooth. Barrel of the lens shows minor wear, consistent with age and normal use. The lens comes with Tiffen UV filter (small dent on the rim) and generic front cap on a leash. High quality prime lens, known for outstanding bubble bokeh.
- Vintage camera strap and a fresh battery for the camera.
