The Fujica ST801 is a manual SLR 35mm film camera made by Fuji in the 1970s.

Feature summary Edit

  • M42 mount
  • TTL average light meter, with silicon cells and LEDs, later models (engraved name on front in place of raised letters) being moderately centerweighted. LEDs show up to 3 stops over and 3 stops under proper exposure, and can indicate as little as 1/4 stop difference in exposure
  • open aperture metering
  • shutter speed up to 1/2000 s

Pros and Cons Edit

Pros Edit

  • very bright viewfinder (probably next brightest to Bessaflex)
  • LEDs of the light meter are visible in adverse light conditions
  • open aperture metering (works with Fujinon EBC lenses)
  • very compact
  • no mercury battery; uses silver oxide, lithium or alkaline battery, 6V 544/PX28 type

Cons Edit

  • open aperture makes the M42 mount non standard. The EBC lenses will not be able to mount completely on some other makes because of the open-aperture metering lug on the back of the aperture ring. Almost all M42 lenses will mount and work properly on the ST 801, with auto-diaphragm, and will meter properly in stop-down metering mode.
  • Stop-down metering must be used with non-EBC Fujinon lenses: easily accomplished by pressing and holding the depth of field preview button on the front, which can be locked if desired. The LED's mean the readout will always be easily discerned, regardless of viewfinder dimming upon stopping down to take a reading.
  • slow flash synchronisation
