Fujica ST801 Chrome
Arguably one of the best M42-mount film SLRs and most popular and highly rated cameras in Fujica ST series. Revolutionary at the time, ST801 features LED meter display in the viewfinder and a full range of mechanical shutter speeds. This camera will work wonderfully with Takumars and other high-performing 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, film transport and self-timer work properly. Meter works, but seems off by about a stop - easy to compensate by adjusting film speed (set camera to ASA 200 for ASA 400 film, for example). Brand new light seals and mirror guard were installed.
EXC. No major blemishes or dents. Focusing screen and viewfinder are bright, with a few tiny specs of dust (will not affect shooting). Original leatherette is in very good condition.
- EBC Fujinon 55mm f/1.8 prime lens. Scratch-free glass, no fungus. Aperture is dry and snappy. Focus is smooth. Barrel of the lens shows minimal wear. Front rim has a few small dings, but the filter threads are perfectly functional. The lens comes with Vivitar Skylight filter and generic front cap. High quality prime lens, known for outstanding bubble bokeh.
- Original camera strap and factory manual for the camera.
