Fujica ST801 Black
Another copy of ST801 - this one in gorgeous black finish. Probably the most popular and highly rated camera in Fujica ST series, this Fujica ST801 is in fully functional and in excellent cosmetic condition. Revolutionary at the time, LED meter display in the viewfinder and a full range of mechanical shutter speeds. This camera features a 42mm screw lens mount, perfect for Takumars and other 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 timer all work as designed (accuracy of the meter has not been verified with film). Brand new light seals and mirror guard were installed ($25 value). Body comes with a rare viewfinder cup.
EXC, no major dents or scratches. Minor brassing near the strap-lugs. Focusing screen and viewfinder are pristine. Original leatherette is in excellent condition.
- EBC Fujinon 55mm f/1.8 prime lens in EXC condition. Glass is scratch-free, no fungus, just some faint cleaning marks on the rear element (no effect on optical performance). Aperture is snappy and blades are dry. Aperture tab is intact. Focusing is smooth. Barrel of the lens shows minimal wear, minor paint loss on the front rim, no dents. Excellent prime lens, known for a smooth "bubble" bokeh. The lens comes with both Fujica caps and Hoya UV filter.
- A set of 49mm close-up lenses in a dedicated case.
- Vivitar Thyristor power flash in functional condition (batteries not incuded). Cosmetically rough.
- Genuine Fujica camera case (very good condition), body cap, camera strap and a fresh battery for the camera. Roll of film is included as well (expired, use at your own risk).
