The Fujica ST801 is a manual SLR 35mm film camera made by Fuji between 1972 and 1978. It was the first 35mm SLR to use viewfinder LEDs, replacing the traditional centre-the-needle meter display with a centre-the-indicator-light system. This electronic light metering system was developed to eliminate mechanical failure, and needle deviation caused by shocks.
The ST801 is a M42 mount. Fuji created a modification to the standard 42mm screw mount, adding a very small tab on the back of the aperture ring to communicate with the body's light meter to permit open-aperture metering. Unfortunately, M42 Fujinon lenses are sometimes found to have had their aperture coupling tab filed off. While unmodified lenses do fit many M42-mount camera bodies, some lens flanges (or lens adapters) are wide enough in diameter so that the aperture tab interferes with mounting the lens.
