“At the eind of the 80's I bought my Nikon FM used for...”

Written on: 07/10/2010

At the eind of the 80's I bought my Nikon FM used for a bargain and have it now for more then 20 years. I took her everywhere, in dust, rain, heat etc and never stopped working.

In 2004 I replaced my FM for the Nikon D70 and the FM was collecting dust on a shelf but from time to time I picked her up... just to hold her. Last month I decided to buy a film to see if she still works. The sealing was gone and she was leaking light. Took her away to the repairshop for servicing (first time she saw… Read Full Review

“Bought mine in 1979 and it has been with me from...”

Written on: 18/03/2009 by pete1967 (2 reviews written)

Bought mine in 1979 and it has been with me from Arctic to desert and everything between being carried in far from perfect ways and still working like when it was new. You want to learn photography, by manual camera (FM10 is widely available and reasonably prices). FM its successor FM2 are both amazing pieces of kit (I believe FM10 is on par with them). Simply put: buy it, in my opinion you won't regret it! Original 2L76 battery only lasted about 25 years! Forget auto this and auto that, you… Read Full Review

In my point of view Nikon FM is the best mechanical SLR ever made.

There are a lot of quality Nikon lenses avaiable.
Mechanical.
It s heavy with the MD drive… Read Full Review

“well, I haven't been using the Nikon FM camera for...”

Written on: 09/08/2003 by mclaughlin82 (1 review written)

well, I haven't been using the Nikon FM camera for four months yet, but I'm more than happy with it. I found it extremely easy to use and become accustomed to and is now like second nature to me. with a copper silumin body, it's quite a heavy camera and built to last and it doesn't feel cheap like some plastic bodied cameras do. Because it uses the Ai system lenses, they're pretty much readily available and the depth of field preview button can be very handy.
my FM is a little beaten up with… Read Full Review

“The Nikon FM and its auto-exposure twin, the FE,...”

Written on: 21/07/2003 by shutterbug. (1 review written)

The Nikon FM and its auto-exposure twin, the FE, replaced the Nikkormat series just as Nikon came out with its auto-indexing (AI) lenses. The importance of this is that the camera is one of the few in the Nikon system that was designed to accept EITHER NAI or AI lenses.
If you refer to the Nikon Compendium (book) for data, be aware that there is a glaring error on viewfinder coverage for this camera and the FM-2. The real coverage is 93% (not the 43% listed in the book...that isn't even… Read Full Review
