Fujica ST701


Good size and brightness.

Exposure needle

Build quality:

Very solid and well built.


Uses M42 screw mount.
You can find hole range of old nice lenses for this.


First thought this was a new camera then the ST605N that I have tested before.
But they are more or less the same camera.

This do have a better shutter that goes to 1/1000s to 1s.
The mirror and shutter don't make as much vibrations but this is still noticeable.

Biggest downside is that the light meter doesn't work with todays silver battery.

Thumbs up:
Good view finder
All mechanical shutter
Build quality

Thumbs down:
Don't work at all with today's batteries
Mirror vibrations and no mirror lock
Quite noisy
