Fujica ST801 Chrome
Probably the most popular and highly rated camera in Fujica ST series, this Fujica ST801 is in excellent 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. No returns on this camera, please.
Meter, film transport and self-timer work properly (accuracy of the meter has not been verified with film). Shutter seems to work well at all speeds except 1/8 and 1/15 sec, which seem slow. Brand new light seals and mirror guard were installed ($25 value). Vintage camera strap is included.
EXC++. No major blemishes or dents, but some small scratches on the bottom of the camera. Focusing screen and viewfinder are clear and bright, with just a couple of tiny specs of dust (no effect on performance). Original leatherette is in excellent shape.
- Fujinon 55mm f/1.8 prime lens. Glass is scratch-free, no fungus. Aperture has traces of oil and a bit sluggish to close - will benefit from service in the future. Focus is smooth. Barrel of the lens shows minimal wear. The lens comes with Hoya UV filter and new generic front cap. High quality prime lens, known for outstanding bubble bokeh.
