✺ Even more info for you
The Fujica AZ-1 was part of the Fujica AZ series, which included other models such as the AZ-1 Professional and AZ-1 Motor. It was designed to compete with other popular SLR cameras of the time, such as the Canon AE-1 and Nikon FM. The camera uses a battery-powered electronic system for its shutter and exposure control, so it requires a working battery to function properly. The Fujica AZ-1 is compatible with Fujinon lenses, which are known for their high-quality optics and sharpness. It also has a depth of field preview button, allowing photographers to preview the depth of field before taking a shot.
The Fujica AZ-1 is dependent on batteries for its metering system. If the batteries die, the metering system will not work. It's always a good idea to carry spare batteries.
