ST601

General Description
Stop-down aperture TTL metering, mechanical shutter. This introduced as a cheaper version of the later ST701. It is similar in most respects but has a top shutter speed of 1/700 instead of 1/1000 and was sold with an F2.2 lens.

Unfortunately and unlike most of the Fujica SLRs, the 601 is designed to take mercury batteries which are no longer available. For a discussion on solutions to this problem, click here.
