Fuji Shashin Film K.K. known as ‘Fuji Photo Film Co. Ltd.’ was established in 1934 in a Japan, it was named after the Mount Fuji by Asano Shūichi. Fujica was a line of still photography and motion picture cameras which were produced by Fuji. It started producing optical glasses for war; and many Fuji companies were formed but finally consolidated into Fuji Photo Film Co. Ltd. Fujifilm became the largest multinational photography and imaging company of Japan and is known worldwide. Until the late 1970s, fuji cameras were named Fujica as an amalgamation of the word ‘Fuji’ and ‘camera.’
Fujifilms pioneered the Single-8 motion picture format in 1968, as an alternative to the Kodak Super-8 film format. On offer here is a single-8 movie camera, Fujica PX-300 which was produced from 1975 to 1979. It had its own ready-to-use silent single 8 cartridge which could be projected on any Super-8 projector after development, as well. It had a complete black plastic body, but some versions with silver front were also produced later. The camera had manual focusing with a Fujinon MA/Z 1.2 lens. It came with a detachable and retractable handle that could assist in easily gripping the camera while shooting.
The camera is present in exceptional condition with no damage to the body. In the 1970s, it was a common practice to capture their special occasions such as birthdays, vacations, parties, etc with their modern day single-8 movie cameras. This is a collectible worth having for the camera enthusiasts.
