Fujica ST801 Chrome
One of the best-preserved cameras we currently have in stock - grab this one if you are looking for a spare or just want to experience one of the best M42-mount SLRs! 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-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, 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 ($25 value).
MINT-. No major blemishes or dents, very minor brassing on the corners of the film door. Focusing screen and viewfinder are pristine. Original leatherette is in excellent shape.
- Fujinon 55mm f/1.8 prime lens. Near-mint condition, scratch-free glass, no fungus. Aperture is dry and snappy. Focus is smooth. Barrel of the lens shows minimal wear. The lens comes with Vivitar Skylight filter and front cap. High quality prime lens, known for outstanding bubble bokeh.
- Vivitar teleconverter in near-mint condition, scratch-free glass, no fungus. Vivitar front cap and rear caps are included.
- Vintage camera strap, fresh battery for the camera and a roll of film (expired, use at your risk).
