Description:

The Nikon FM is the first model of Nikon's new semi-professional SLR line up. Introduced in 1977 the FM is constructed almost entirely from metal and uses a mechanical shutter. It is manual-focus-only, with manual exposure control. Being mechanical, the FM needs no batteries to operate. This is a huge advantage as you never have to worry about extreme weather making your camera inoperative or your batteries running out.

The FM has a big, bright and fully informative viewfinder that displays the aperture and the shutter speed which means you can adjust your without taking your eyes off your viewfinder. The film advancer feels very light and has a very responsive, short throw. It is truly a well built camera that on top of being very compact and light offers all the options someone that wants to get into the Nikon F system needs.

The lens this camera comes with is a wide 28mm Nikon lens. Perfect for shooting street, city- and landscapes. This Nikon lens is also compatible with modern Nikon DSLRs.

Note that the lens attached to this particular camera is a "Pre-AI" lens, even though the camera is an "AI" camera, meaning that the camera's light meter doesn't couple to the aperture set on the lens. However, you can stop down the lens to meter accurately.
