This is a review and description of a very popular 35mm manual focus single lens reflex camera — the Fujica STX The camera seems to be fully functioning, and in a clean and tidy state, the only slight issue I found was that a small part of the light seal around the focusing screen had stuck to the bottom edge of the mirror.
It only took a couple of seconds to remove that with a pair of tweezers.
If I get to put a film through it I will need to replace all the light seals because they have all disintegrated to the usual sticky mess that cameras of this vintage have. The exposure system is powered by a couple of SR44 batteries and is of the manuap needle variety.
Although not very sophisticated, I find this system easy to use and uncomplicated. The shutter speed selected manhal shown in the viewfinder by way of a mechanical flag on the left hand side, and the exposure meter needle is on the other side.

Metering is done at full aperture with the lens being stopped down as the shot is taken by a small lever in the kanual mount. The viewfinder also incorporates the almost standard split rangefinder style focusing aid in the middle, a micro prism ring around that and then a ground glass screen for the rest of the view.
The lens is amnual lot like the lenses fitted to similar entry level cameras of this era. I have tried this camera out with a roll of Fomapan developed in caffenol, for the results see here. As with any photographer, film choice is a personal preference.
With the Stx-1, I found that Fuji film produces the best color, and sharpest images.
I have used my STX-1 for 37 years, and it takes just as fantastic photographs today as it did brand new. My grandfather passed away and I received this camera. Was manul of its value as I am not a photography person al all.
Thanks for your help. A standard Fujica STX-1 is only worth a few pounds. The Fujinon 50mm f1.
