How to find a rear lens cap and body cao for fujifilm STX-2 SLR film camera


Hi so I've bought this Fuji STX-2 SLR camera and it didn't come with any lens caps. I've scoured forums and tried to buy some but to no avail. I'm currently on the line of needing a 50mm x-mount for the camera body and rear lens cap but honestly I'm still quite lost in all of this. If anyone has any idea about what compatability my camera would have and/or where to buy these lens caps I would much appreciate it as I have already bought two lots of caps which I believed to be a fit, only to send them back after realising that they in fact are not. In any case best wishes, and thanks in advance.

This isn't an X-series camera, but a film camera from the 80's, so not surprising the OP is struggling to source the correct caps.
Hope you manege to find them!

This is indeed the old Fujica X Mount as described at the link below, but unfortunately Fuji seem obsessed with the letter X for some reason, and that's why there is confusion between old and new. https://camerapedia.fandom.com/wiki/Fujica_X_lenses

Taking this a step further, I don't recall ever using the body cap that came with my cameras and I'm wondering why you don't just keep the lens on the camera at all times, then you won't need a body or rear lens cap?

There are 3rd party versions which are cheaper.

Note: If you use FUJICA X Mount instead of FUJI you should have much more success

rather than the Fujica-X film camera, which just shows how difficult it can be to find the right item on eBay from the descriptions. Often sellers will choose the wrong Fuji descirptor or will quote 2 or 3 different ones so that it will come up on alternative searches, so a pest at times.
