Perfect Pair: Fujica ST 801 and the Argenti Vivid Arrow 400 DX

There are films that, for one reason or another, I don't see being used with any other camera. In my case, it's the Fujica ST 801 with the Argenti Vivid Arrow 400 DX film. These are my reasons.

I bought the secondhand Fujica ST801 online. I like the results produced by this analogue camera.

This photo was taken at the bus station in Cordoba. The girl’s father caught me taking the photo, but who cares – the girl and her hair deserved it.

The brightness of the camera is one of the things that made me decide to buy it, although at first it had me with its fixed focus.

The colors of the Argenti Vivid Arrow 400 DX film have me fascinated.

I did not hesitate for a moment to load a new roll when I was in the barrio de las letras of Madrid.

It also has a vintage air that comes in handy for the Fujica, except that with this film, I always shoot in black and white.

And of course, they are the perfect combination for portraits, both stolen and posed.

And finally, the perfect sunset taken from the terrace of the Circulo de Bellas Artes.

What about you? Do you have a perfect combination?

    For me, the best combination I found until now is that of the Nikon F60, with the 50 mm f/1.8 AF-D lens and the Kodak BW400CN film :).

    Currently, I have just inserted an Argenti film in my F60 (this is how I found your article - I wanted to know more about the film's capabilities; however, mine is the black and white Opticon-X, ISO 400 ). I got it from a loved one on a trip in Spain, just can't wait to see the photos.

    Best regards!
