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.

Due to the age of the FM their light meters tend to be burnt out. Fortunately this is not too much of an issue as these cameras function fine without batteries.
This mechanical reliability is one of the main advantages of the Nikon FM. To meter a scene before taking a picture just use an external light-meter or a light-meter app on your phone (we recommend myLightmeter), or alternatively the foolproof sunny-16 rule.

The lens this camera comes with is a wide 50mm Nikon lens. Perfect all rounder lens with incredible bokeh when shot wide open. This Nikon lens is also compatible with modern Nikon DSLRs.
