FUJICA STX-1 MANUAL PDF

My dad got this camera from his grandparents when he graduated from high school, around , and I in turn inherited it from him around the time I completed my B. It holds a special place in my heart; it's the camera I learned to shoot film on, and a camera I continue to take out and use on quick jaunts. I plan on buying another one or two for friends interested in photography to use as a beginner's camera, rather than a Canon A-1 or such although I plan on buying one of those as well. Here's a few reasons why. Its size makes it ideal for street photography as its retro looks combine with its diminutive stature to allow it to go unnoticed when shooting pedestrians.

My dad got this camera from his grandparents when he graduated from high school, around , and I in turn inherited it from him around the time I completed my B. It holds a special place in my heart; it's the camera I learned to shoot film on, and a camera I continue to take out and use on quick jaunts.

I plan on buying another one or two for friends interested in photography to use as a beginner's camera, rather than a Canon A-1 or such although I plan on buying one of those as well. Here's a few reasons why. Its size makes it ideal for street photography as its retro looks combine with its diminutive stature to allow it to go unnoticed when shooting pedestrians.

Thus, it overall is easy to carry and maneuver to get the shot you want. However, its blocky nature means your hands can get sore quite easily, especially if you have hands on the larger size like I do. My ring and middle finger often are forced to wrap around the bottom edge of the camera and over long periods of shooting this gets quite irritating.

Additionally, the right side of the top plate is quite crowded and it isn't easy to quickly access the shutter speed control knob, since the film advance lever and shutter release are right by it. This camera does not let you get off easy when it comes to composing an image. Being a manual-everything camera, the STX-1 forces you to work to compose, meter and take your image. It's a bare bones experience, but a very rewarding one. The svelte frame definitely compensates for this, and doesn't punish you for moving around to try to get the perfect shot, and gives you some support while you do all the rest of the work.

Really, this theme continues throughout the shooting experience: the built-in, still-accurate! The wide ASA and shutter speed ranges work similarly too: they are small advantages that make shooting easier without completely holding your hand. The split screen viewfinder means you have some help achieving perfectly sharp images, but it's certainly not AF either.

The lens selection for the STX-1 is honestly superb, with very sharp stopped-down lenses, although not that fast. Most lenses are around this range of f-stops.

But I think this continues the theme as well: fast enough that your viewfinder isn't totally dark, but not so fast that you can ignore camera shake in low light. And for people who are interested in doing photography somewhat seriously as an art, this is ideal; they really can own their work and understand f-stops, exposure, and composition in a careful way.

Film definitely slows me down; I'm more conscious of every shot I take, and this consciousness is an ideal mindset for a beginner to be in. I don't think advanced users can really say no to an STX-1 either: it's cheap, the EBC lenses are great, and there's some good fast 50mm offerings in the Fujica X lineup that are affordable as well.

Adding in the tiny frame, who wouldn't want to throw an STX-1 in their bag and take it on the street?
