My thoughts and activities in photography, camera collecting, current events, and photographic tips. That camera was part of an estate sale that was eventually sold, and I put one roll of film through it. We could not get the camera to work, so I brought it home to see if I could get it working. I opened the bottom plate and saw that a cam was not engaging.

I slipped it back into place, and now the camera works just fine! That gave me the opportunity to shoot with the camera for a bit before it goes back into the FPP School Donation Program.

They were innovative, with the controls for the exposure and focus made via thumbwheels on the back plate. The cameras had other quirks, and like most leaf-shutter SLRs from the s, they were limited in lenses, shutter speed, and were left behind by the focal-plane shutter SLRs.

Today, they are somewhat rare, and probably rarely work well. Fuji came out with their series of ST models which used the M42 mount. The ST appeared in , followed by the ST in The ST appeared in , and featured Aperture-Priority exposure. The ST appeared in , and the ST came out in All of these models have cloth horizontal shutters, are well-made, and use match-needle metering visible in the finder.

The exception is the ST , which was the first SLR to use diodes in the finder instead of a match-needle and scale. Fuji introduced their new system with the STX-1 in Again, a cloth focal plane shutter.

Match-needle metering, visible in the viewfinder. There is a depth of field preview button above the self-timer arm. There is a locking collar around the shutter release, preventing inadvertent releases. The meter is engaged when you press halfway-down on the shutter, and the match needle is easy to see on the right side of the viewfinder.

On the left side of the viewfinder you can see the shutter speeds. I like the meter markings, which are handy in adjusting the exposure.

As a full-manual camera, it is pretty much perfect. The film advance lever is well-designed and comfortable to use. The only oddball thing is that the tripod socket is not centered on the camera, and is to the left. The camera was received with the 55mm f2. These cameras all have more automation and features than the STX Fuji Photo Film Co.

While first and foremost a film producer, they did produce some very fine lenses and cameras. I can understand why they stopped producing 35mm SLRs in the mids. In using the STX-1, I found the camera to handle very well, but certainly not much different than any other compact SLRs from the early s.

Had Fuji adopted the Copal Square vertical shutter rather than the horizontal cloth shutter, they might have had a longer run with 35mm, but by the mids, it was pretty much Nikon, Pentax, Canon, or Minolta for people looking to buy a 35mm SLR as a system camera.

You could do far worse than the Fujica 35mm SLRs. The X-mount lenses were only produced for about 6 years, so there are fewer of them out there. The advantage of the ST might be the plethora of Mmount lenses that are available. I have to agree, based upon what I have seen over the years. Posted by.

Akigrel This page has been accessed 5, times. I have tried this camera out with a roll of Fomapan developed in caffenol, for the results see here. A DOF preview control is present, conveniently placed on the front of the camera next to the lens. Was wondering of its value as I am not a photography person al all. I would recomend this camera to any one and it has proper camera looks. English Choose a language for shopping.
