The Fujica STX-1 was manufactured by Fuji during the late 1970s and early 1980s and was their entry level SLR during that time. It was introduced to the United States in 1979. The cloth type focal plane shutter is mechanical, with a top speed of 1/700th of a second and a flash sync at 1/60th of a second. The lowest speed is 1/2 second and the camera includes a bulb setting along with shutter release cable connection. Selected shutter speed is shown along the left side of the viewfinder through a mechanical linkage. A DOF preview control is present, conveniently placed on the front of the camera next to the lens.
Everything about the STX-1 is manual. No program modes are available. The camera does require a battery, but only to run the meter.
