1. Improved Through-The-Lens Exposure Meter

The exposure meter of the FUJICA STX-1 consists of 2 Silicon photocell light receptors located on either side of the viewfinder eyepiece. which are connected to an FET (Field Effect Transistor) circuit and are coupled with the shutter and diaphragm. It measures the average light intensity which falls on the entire surface of the focusing glass In other words, it measures the light that has passed through the lens and will actually reach the film.

Special features of this camera are: the new Fujica X bayonet mount which permits quick interchanging of the lenses, a full aperture metering system. and three-way focusing with split image, microprism and ground glass It is also provided with a shutter speed indicator scale in the viewfinder to enable you to set the shutter speed while looking through the viewfinder

2. World Renowned X-FUJINON Lens
The interchangeable lenses of the FUJICA STX-1 are widely known for their superb color definition and perfect corner-to-corner picture sharpness and clarity.

3. A Complete Camera System in Itself
A wide range of interchangeable lenses, accessories. and its Improved TTL full-aperture exposure meter make the FUJICA STX-1 a complete camera system in itself capable of handling any picture-taking situation and subject.


1. Load the Film

Pull the Combination Film Rewind Crank/Back Cover Lock fully until the Camera Back automatically snaps open Next, load the 35mm film cartridge into the Film Chamber and insert the film into the slot of the Take-up Spool.

2. Set the Film Speed

To set the camera for the speed of the film you are using, pull up the top of the Shutter Speed Selector Dial and turn it until the number you want appears in the center of the ASA Film Speed Indicator Window

3. Set the Frame Counter to 1 (the first white dot before the number 2)

The odd numbers of the frame counter are represented by white dots. Wind the Film Advance Lever and press the Shutter Release Button Do this twice. and on the 3rd winding. the first white dot on the film counter (frame No 1 ) will move opposite the triangular mark.

4. Set the Shutter Speed Selector Dial

Turn the Shutter Speed Selector Dial to the speed desired If you are shooting outdoors. the shutter speed will be either 1/125 sec or 1/250 see If you are shooting indoors it will be 1/30 sec or 1/60 sec The shutter speed can also be set with the shutter speed scale and green indicator needle in the viewfinder (left side edge) The needle is set by turning the Shutter Speed Selector

5. Focus the Lens and Frame Your Picture

(1) Look through the Viewfinder Eyepiece and turn the Focusing Ring to focus and frame your picture

(2) To focus turn the focusing ring to make the upper and lower segments of the split image in the microprism center spot converge and form a perfect fit

6. Set the exposure

To set the camera for correct exposure, press the Shutter Release Button halfway down. Look through the Viewfinder and, while watching the exposure meter needle, turn the Aperture Selector Ring to bring the needle into the center of the indentation

7. Press the Shutter Release Button

Hold camera steady to prevent shake and gently press the Shutter Release Button

8. Rewind the Film

After you have exposed the entire roll of film, press the Film Rewind Button, erect the Film Rewind Crank. and turn it in the direction pointed by the arrow and wind the film back into the cartridge, until you feel tension released Next, lift the Back Cover Lock fully up until the camera back snaps open Now, remove the cartridge.


1. Open the Cover

Insert a coin into the slot of the Battery Chamber Cover ~ located on the upper back side of the body and turn it counter-clockwise

2. Load the Batteries

Insert two alkaline-manganese batteries one on top of the other into the Battery Chamber with the plus sides (+) facing outward and close the cover.

* If you are buying new batteries. be sure to specify LR44-type alkaline-manganese batteries. HR44-type mercury bakeries. or SR44-type silver oxide batteries

 3. Check the batteries

(1) Set the ASA Speed Selector (2) to 100, the Aperture Selector (18) to F2.2, and the Shutter Speed Selector (2) to 60.

(2) While pressing the Shutter Release Button (4) halfway down, look through the Viewfinder and point the camera toward bright light (fluorescent light, etc.)

(3) If the meter needle in the viewfinder moves from the plus side down to the minus side when the camera is faced toward dim light (you can block out the light with your hand). the batteries are loaded correctly.

(4) If the needle remains stationary on the plus side or minus side when the camera is faced from bright to dim light, the batteries are either exhausted or improperly loaded and have to be changed or reloaded properly.

Precautions: If you are not taking pictures immediately, lock the shutter release button to prevent tripping the shutter or draining the batteries inadvertently

* The mercury or silver-oxide batteries will normally last about 1 year. and alkaline-manganese batteries about 8 months.

* If you are not using the camera for a long while remove the batteries and keep them where it is dry.

* Be sure to wipe both ends of the batteries clean with a piece of cloth before loading. Poor contact may result if the ends are unclean


1. Open the Camera Back

Lift the Combination Film Rewind Crank - Camera Back Lock ~ fully up until the Camera Back ~ automatically snaps open.

2. Load the Film

Insert the cartridge into the Film Chamber ~ with the spool head (projection) pointing to the bottom of the camera. push down the Combination Film Rewind Crank - Camera Back Lock ~ to engage the Film Rewind Spindle ~ with the film spool Pull out the trimmed end of the film and insert it down to the bottom end into the slot of the Take-up Spool by

3. Close the Camera Back

Wind the film a little with the Film Advance Lever Expand engage the perforations on both edges of the film with the sprocket teeth Be sure the film is properly inserted between the Guide Rail ~ Now, press down the Camera Back until it closes tightly with a click

* If the Film Rewind Crank turns in the opposite direction of the arrow as you wind the Film Advance Lever4.butkus.org

* it means the film has been loaded properly,

* The odd numbers of the Film Counter (hi) are represented by white dots

* To allow you to take quick shots in succession, the Film Advance Lever (A will be back with a slight latitude Press it all the way back after you have finished shooting

4. Set the Frame Counter (5) to 1 (the first white dot before the number 2) Wind the Film Advance Lever (1) all the way to the right and press the Shutter Release Button (4) Do this twice, and on the third winding. the first white dot before the number 2 will move opposite the triangular mark You are now ready to take the first picture


Lift the top of the Shutter Speed Selector Dial (2) and turn it to the left or right until the film speed number you want appears in the center of the ASA Film Speed Indicator Window (3)

The film speed is printed on the film box. (FUJICOLOR Film FUJICHROME 100 and NEOPAN SS are ASA 100 films FUJICHROME 400 FUJICOLOR 400 and NEOPAN 400 are ASA 400 films )

The calibrations between the ASA numbers represent the following numbers: ( I )

· If you are using a film marked for DIN speed refer to the following conversion table (11)


The letter B and the numbers 2... 700 on the Shutter Speed Selector Dial represent ''bulb'' and 1/2 . ., 1/700 second They indicate the length of time the film will be exposed to light. The shutter speed scale is also visible in the viewfinder (left side edge).

This camera allows you to set exposure either by the shutter speed or by the size of the lens opening However, it is best to set the shutter speed first. For example, the shutter speed would be from 1/125 to 1/250 sec if you are shooting outdoors, or from 1/30 sec to 1/60 sec . if you are shooting indoors To set the shutter speed, first turn the Shutter Speed Selector Dial while pressing down on it slightly and set the number you want opposite the red dot on the camera body. To set the shutter speed with the scale and needle in the viewfinder. just move the needle into position by turning the Shutter Speed Selector.

* Use B (bulb) if the exposure will take l second or longer.

* There are no intermediate settings between the numbers indicated on the dial.

* 60 is marked with a red X to remind you that it IS the speed used for shooting with electronic flash.

Excepting l /700 second, each shutter speed is either l /2 or 2 times the speed of the shutter speed next to it


1. Focus the Lens

(1 ) Look through the Viewfinder and point the camera so that the main subject is seen through the small microprism center spot.

(2) Split-image Focusing

Turn the Focusing Ring (22) until the upper and lower segments of the split image in the microprism center spot converge to form a single image

(3) Microprism Focusing

Turn the Focusing Ring until the image in the microprism center spot appears sharp

(4) You can also focus with any part of the area surrounding the microprism center spot This method is especially useful when shooting with aperture stopped far down

(5) The white numbers on the Focusing Ring are for meters and the green numbers are for feet The distance can also be set by visual judgment for quick shooting

When shooting extreme close-ups the distance from subject to Film Plane Mark (16) must be precisely measured with a tape measure

2. Frame Your Picture

The Viewfinder will let you see 92% of the entire View that will register on your film so that you can go ahead and use the whole length and width of the area in the Viewfinder to frame your picture

*  Eyesight Adjustment Lens

The Viewfinder is provided with an eyepiece for those with normal vision. If you are near sighted or far sighted, be sure to use an Eyesight Adjustment Lens, otherwise it will be extremely difficult for you to focus the lens precisely. Four different Eyesight Adjustment Lenses are supplied as optional accessories: +2, +0.5, - 2.5 and ~4 dioptor.


1. Press the Shutter Release Button halfway down
Point the camera at your subject while looking through the viewfinder and press the Shutter Release Button ~ halfway down The meter needle on the right hand side of the viewfinder will move up from the ( - ) position

2. Turn the Aperture Selector Ring

Press the Shutter Release Button halfway down and turn the Aperture Selector Ring ~ until the needle in the viewfinder moves into the center of the indentation You now have the correct exposure. The aperture can also be set intermediately between the calibrations on the scale to permit fine adjustments.

3. If the Needle Does Not Move into the Center of the Indentation.

If the meter needle does not move into the center of the Indentation by turning the Aperture Selector Ring, you will have to change the shutter speed.

* If the needle is near the (+) side, increase the shutter speed (Example: If the shutter speed is 1/125 see, turn the dial to 1/250 sec.).

* If the needle is near the ( - ) side, reduce the shutter speed. (Example: If the shutter speed is 1/125 sec.. reduce it to 1/60 sec.)

4. Wide Measuring Range

Since the light that is measured is the average light intensity falling on the focusing glass, the range of measurement must differ depending on the speeds of the lens and film. A noteworthy feature of this exposure meter is that it covers a wide range of exposure values If you are shooting with FUJICOLOR Film (ASA 100) film using an F1 4 lens. for example. the range covered would be EV2 - EV17-2/3 (f/1.4 1/2sec. - f/16 1/700 sec) If the lens is 55mm F22. the range is from EV3 - EV17-2/3 (f/2.2 1/2 sec - f/16 1/700 sec ):

The chart on page 56 shows the light measuring range of the FUJICA STX-1 s exposure meter The Shutter Speed Selector Dial can be set over every ASA speed and shutter speed combination on the dial, but the exposure meter will operate only within the range shown in the chart.


1. Hold the Camera Steady

If you don't hold the camera steady. your pictures will not turn out sharp because the camera will shake Be sure to hold yourself in good balance with elbows close against your body and the camera pressed lightly against your face. This is all the more necessary if you are shooting with the camera held vertically. Practice a little and get used to these motions.

2. Press Down the Shutter Release Button

Be sure to press down the Shutter Release Button (hi) gently Any jerky motion can cause the camera to shake and pictures to be unsharp.

3. When To Use a Tripod

If you are taking a close-up. telephoto shot, or if you are shooting at a shutter speed slower than 1/30 sec., be sure to use a tripod and cable release to avoid camera shake

A cable release is also recommended for shooting long-exposure shots with the camera placed on a table, against a tree. or on some other steady foundation. A cable release with a stopper attachment is a very convenient item for shooting with the camera set at B (bulb) You can press open the shutter. hold it in that position with the stopper for as long as you want, then release the stopper to close the shutter


After you have finished a roll of film, rewind it back into the cartridge and take it out of the camera

1. Press the Film Rewind Button

First, press down the Film Rewind Button (35) located on the underside of the camera Once you have pressed down this button, you can let it go because it will stay depressed The Sprocket Wheels (29) are now free4.butkus.org

2. Turn the Film Rewind Crank

Erect the Film Rewind Crank (15) and wind it in the direction of the arrow to return the exposed film back into the cartridge. Just before the end of the film is reached, you will feel a slight tension released on the crane Give it 2 more turns and the film Is wound back into the cartridge
If the film cannot be rewound (this will sometimes happen if the Film Advance Lever is not in the correct position). just depress the Rewind Button and, while holding it down. wind the Film Advance Lever all the way through Next, release the Rewind Button and rewind the film.

3. Open the Camera Back
Lift the Combination Film Rewind Crank - Camera Back Lock (15) until the Camera Back (32) opens with a snap. Now take out the cartridge and send it to the processor - the sooner the better

Be sure to load and unload the cartridge in the shade and away from direct sunlight by all means If the end of the film is reached when you have wound the Film Advance Lever half-way around. do not force it because the film might break Simply press the Film Rewind Button and wind the Film Advance Lever all the way back The shutter will be cocked. but the film will remain stationary Since you have already pressed the Film Rewind Button all you need do is turn the Film Rewind Crank.


A complete range of highly color-compatible. high resolution X-FUJINON interchangeable lenses are available for shooting scenics,. portraits, snap-shots, news photos, and photo records with the FUJICA STX-1

1. Mounting

Fit the Lens into the camera's Lens Mount (17) so that the red dot on the Lens' mounting end comes opposite the red dot on the Lens Mount (19) then turn the lens about 65 to the right (clockwise). Ii will lock itself with a click.

You can also use the Aperture/Distance Mark on the lens barrel as your guide because it is located on the same line as the red dot on the Lens' mounting end

2. Dismounting

While pressing in the Lens Lock (23) toward the camera body. turn the lens to the left (counterclockwise) as far as it will go, then pull it out toward the front

* When changing the lens, be careful not to touch the lens glass or the mirror in the body with your fingers



The ASA film speed and shutter speed are coupled over the range shown In the chart on the next page. To measure the exposure you can use the entire range of apertures provided on the lens you are using
Example: With the ASA speed selector set to 100 you can use a shutter speed of from 1/2 to 1/700 sec. The aperture will automatically be coupled to the shutter speed being used
ASA Shutter speed that link with the meter
25   1/2 sec to 1/700
32   1/2 sec to 1/700
40    1/2 sec to 1/700
50   1/2 sec to 1/700
64   1/2 sec to 1/700
80   1/2 sec to 1/700
100   1/2 sec to 1/700
125   1/2 sec to 1/700
160   1/2 sec to 1/700
200   1/2 sec to 1/700
400    1/2 sec to 1/700
800    1/4 sec to 1/700
1600   1/8 sec to 1/700
3200 1/15 sec to 1/700


Any normal subject can be accurately exposed by following the meter reading. However, best results are obtained under the following situations by correcting the exposure.

1. Back lighted Subjects, etc.

Back lighted subjects or ski scenes, which are dominated by white areas and strong reflections, will turn out with the main subject underexposed. By opening the aperture by 1/2 or 1 full stop. or by approaching the main subject to measure the light intensity, it can be correctly exposed

2. Spot-lighted Subjects. etc.

A person standing before a black background or a spot-lighted subject in a stage play will be influenced by the dark surroundings and turn out overexposed. The aperture should be stopped down by 1/2 or 1 full stop below that indicated by the meter.

3. Copying Documents

The major portion of most documents are occupied by white areas. The situation calls for opening the aperture by 1 full stop from that indicated by the meter.

If you want to be more precise. place an 18% standard reflectance card in front of the camera and set the exposure with the exposure meter

For maximum corner-to-corner sharpness. the minimum practical aperture should be used for copying work and for taking close-ups.

4. Taking Advantage of the Eye Cup

With the aperture stopped well down, the light reflected from your eye or spectacles (if you are wearing them) will reach the focusing glass and slightly influence the meter reading. To avoid this, use an Eye Cup over the Viewfinder eyepiece


If you want to use your Praktica screw-mount Fujinon lenses on the Fujica STX-1 use the Fujica Mount

Adapter X-S (optional accessory).

(1) Screw the Mount Adapter X-S on the lens rear

(2) Place the red dot on the adapter s rear end against the red dot on the camera s Lens Mount (17) and turn the lens 65 to the right (clockwise). It will lock into position with a click.

(3) While looking through the viewfinder press in the Depth of Field Preview Button (11), hold it there and press the Shutter Release Button halfway down Then turn the Aperture Ring until the exposure needle in the viewfinder moves into the center of the indentation.

(4) Focus the lens. compose your picture and squeeze the Shutter Release Button gently down.


1. What is meant by Depth of Field

To check the effects of the aperture you have selected —how well you have blurred out the background or how wide the depth of sharpness is - all you have to do is to look through the viewfinder, because the aperture will close down to the size you have selected as you press In the Depth of Field Preview Button

Thus. the sharpness of a picture extends over a considerable range both in front of and behind the point the lens is focused on This zone of sharpness is referred to as the depth of field The width of the depth of field differs depending on the lens focal length, subject distance, and lens aperture


(1) The higher the aperture number (the smaller the aperture), the wider the depth of field The lower the aperture number, the narrower it becomes.

(2) The longer the focal length of the lens, the narrower the depth of field, and the shorter it is the wider it becomes.

(3) The farther the distance the lens is focused on, the wider the depth of held.

(4) The zone of sharpness in front of the point of sharpest focus is narrower than the zone of sharpness behind the same point.

(5) Example A shows the aperture fully open.4.butkus.org

Example B shows the aperture stopped down to f/16.

2. How to see the Depth of Field

All the interchangeable lenses of the FUJICA STX-1 are provided with a depth of field indicator on the lens barrel. For example. if you are using an F2 2 55 mm normal lens and have set the aperture at f/8 and the distance at 15 feet (5 m), everything from about 11.5 feet (3.5 m) to 28.5 feet (8.7 m) will be in sharp focus.


If you are taking pictures of a group or if you are shooting a family souvenir picture and want to get into the picture yourself, just use the self-timer First, mount the camera on a tripod, wind the film and push the Self-timer Set Lever all the way down, Next, press the Self-timer Start Button and move back into the picture The shutter will be automatically released in 8 - 10 seconds.

* You can set the self-timer first. then wind the film afterwards, whichever way you prefer.

* Don't press the Shutter Release Button ''instead'' of the Self-timer Start Button, because you will
    release the shutter if you do

* Make sure the Self-timer Lever is pushed all the way down (never part-way down) before
    depressing the Start Button


To take infrared pictures with infrared film in your camera, the Lens is focused on a point slightly short of your subject. The procedure is as follows:

1. Focus the lens on your subject.

2. Check the distance given on the Distance Ring and move that distance opposite the Infrared Setting Mark. Next, put a red filter on the Lens and shoot. (The Infrared Setting Mark is the small red dot located next to the Lens Setting Mark. )

* Read the instruction sheet packed with your infrared film carefully because exposure is not determined by subject brightness.


You can use a flash for shooting indoors and night pictures as well as for supplementary lighting in outdoor photography To take flash pictures. use a cordless hot-shoe type electronic flash Just clip it Into the camera s Hot Shoe ~ and set the Shutter Speed Selector (A to 1/60 sec (marked with a red X on the Shutter Speed Scale)

* Setting the aperture

(1 ) If you are using an automatic electronic flash. set the Aperture Selector ~ to the specified aperture and the flash will take care of the rest

(2) If you are using an ordinary electronic flash. just divide the guide number of your flash by the distance from flash to subject to find the correct aperture
