The FM was produced by Nikon between 1977 and 1982
and was marketed along side the renown F2 as a more compact alternative. This is
another fully mechanical manual camera, only relying on its batteries for the TTL exposure metering
which is indicated by three red LEDs in the viewfinder. The selected
shutter speed and aperture are also indicated in the viewfinder. Over time the Nikon FM has proven to be one of the finest and most reliable 35mm
SLR cameras ever made.
A good solid camera which is a joy to use.
