The Fujica Fujicarex II was introduced to Europe in about 1963. There was also a 1962 Fujicarex sold only to the Japanese market and a 1964 Fujicarex SLR 35 for the US. There appears to be no difference between the three cameras. The Fujicarex seems to have been produced for just a few years.

The Fujicarex is a 35mm SLR with an automatic diaphragm and instant return mirror. Focusing is via a ground glass screen with a split image rangefinder, which is operated by a thumb wheel on the back of the camera top-plate housing. The rangefinder provides a three-way split, so a central section within the circle is the bit that moves.

The camera also features a selenium powered shutter priority, match-needle, auto-exposure system. The meter needle is visible through the camera viewfinder, and also operated by a second thumbwheel on the back of the camera top-plate housing. Aperture selection is coupled to the meter, so the thumbwheel sets the lens opening size, but the diaphragm remains fully open until the moment of exposure. A preferred aperture can be set manually for non-automatic operation.
