Description:

The Nikon FM2 is an advanced semi-professional, interchangeable lens, 35 mm filmsingle-lens reflex (SLR) camera.

It was manufactured by Nippon Kogaku K. K. (today Nikon Corporation) in Japan from 1982 to 2001. The original camera was released with some incremental improvements (such as a higher flash-sync speed) in 1984 and this later version is commonly referred to as the FM2n (for 'new' due to the N preceding the serial number on the rear of the top plate) although both versions are labelled as the FM2 on the front of the camera body.

 

Specification:

  • Exposure control: Manual
  • Shutter speed: Mechanical 1/4,000 to 1 second, plus B (long exposure)
  • Exposure metering: Center-Weighted, TTL full-aperture metering; EV 1 to 18 at ISO 100 with f/1.4 lens
  • Power requirements: One 3V CR1/3N lithium battery, or two 1.55V SR44 silver-oxide batteries, or two 1.5V LR44 alkaline batteries
  • Dimensions (W x H x D): Approx. 142.5 x 90 x 60mm (5.6 x 3.5 x 2.4 in.)
  • Weight (body only without batteries): Approx. 540g (19 oz.)

Review:

Nikon FM2 is somewhat of a legend, in the world of photography, with a reputation of being a great lifetime companion of any photographer. I was lucky enough to find one in my parents’ house. Considered to be, even if only for some, the holy grail of cameras, it is for most at least, a very respectable camera....

I find it to be a very handy, robust and efficient camera. Easy to use, with a large set of quality lens available and although still a bit heavy, it’s quite lighter than a few of its counterparts. And indeed, it never gave me any problems. Currently, I happen to use it mostly for black and white, but it performs well no matter the grains in the film I use.
