About Nikon FM-10

If you want total manual control, the FM10 is a great choice. Select shutter speed and aperture. Use manual film advance and rewind manually.

It's 100% your choice - a great way to learn and build confidence.

It's a great first 35mm camera for the enthusiast who wants to begin with basics without cutting corners. For the Nikon enthusiast, the FM10 is a great additional camera - light, compact and it accepts AF Nikkor and AI-S Nikkor lenses for manual focusing operation; it fits perfectly into any photographer's Nikon system.

Complete Control Camera

I've used this camera extensively, in my own home and in travels all over Spain and the city of light, Paris, France. It is easy to use, but you have to be thoroughly familiar with F-stops/ shutter speed/film ISO combinations to really take advantage of its versatility. The 35-70MM lens is convenient, particularly when you are experimenting with camera angles and frame composition. The razor sharp, full color prints are a delight to see.

Wond word.......JUNK

This is not even a real Nikon, it's made by under contract by another company. Very flimsy and not worth it at half the price. Save your money and get a used FE, FE2, or FM. Less money and twice the camera.

Poor College Student Camera

By

from Undisclosed

I go to Pacific Northwest College of Art in Oregon, I needed a solid Nikon 35mm film camera to go along with all my digital lens I have for the D3. I expected Nikon to have quality standers in the products they make, but the Nikon FM 10 let me down. A) Metering was always off by one of two stops never predicable. I compared it with a very nice studio meter. B) The whole body is plastic don't let the colors fool you. The leaver to pull the next shot is also plastic and got jammed with in a year. I ended up having to use my teachers Nikon FM2 which is beauty. I wouldn't recommend this product for high school or college level use.

Review from a D3300 owner.

By

from Lake Zurich, IL, USA

I am an amateur photography enthusiast. Back when I was in college in the early 90's, I wanted to take up photography. I never had the free time to take a photography class or the extra money to develop prints. I knew I'd spend a bunch of money and film learning the proper camera settings through trial and error. Fast forward to 2014, and I have a D3300. I'm able to play with settings, take as many pictures as I want, delete bad ones and keep good ones. I love my DSLR, but it was making me lazy. If I didn't get a setting right, I could take another shot or fix it during post processing. If I don't compose the image right, I crop the picture in post processing. I have a fuzzy understanding of the relationship between sensor ISO, shutter speed, and aperture. I wanted to get a better understanding. Putting the DSLR into full manual mode helped but I still wanted a better understanding. The Nikon FM10 is a throwback to SLR's from my father's days. With the exception of a simple light meter, everything is mechanical. I set the film ISO when I load a roll. The only other settings I have to concentrate on are focus, aperture, and shutter speed. The limited 24 film exposures forces me to slow down and really put thought into making a picture. The FM10 is helping me get a better understanding of photography. I liken the experience to cars: automatic v.s. manual transmission. The DSLR's are like modern automatic cars that have a manu-matic mode. The FM10 is like a manual transmission car. It's important to know how to use both.

Simple Camera, Great Results

By

from Tampa, FL, USA

I purchased this camera basically new and without any wear. I found it easy to use the first time I picked it up. The photos from the lens it comes with are very clear, and the shutter produces a satisfying click. I really enjoy using this camera.

I love this camera. It being my first fully manual slr it was very easy to learn on and it is really good quality. It has however jammed up on me multiple times and has some problems with the shutter release, curtains, and mirror.

Excellent, basic, essential film camera. Wanted to return to film and this was my ticket. Just finished a 12 day trip to Spain where i put it to use for the first time and it worked beautifully. So far so good!

Excellent For Learning Basics

By

from Washington DC  -  Photo Enthusiast

This was my first SLR camera way back in 1999. Since then I have shot more than 200+ films on this camera before moving to Digital world. If we keep the discussion within the analog photography, this camera is very easy to use. It has got all the basic feature like, which any film camera offers i.e. setting up your shutter speed and aperture and depending on your lens, the focal length. I shot mostly potraits and they were really great. My luck with landscapes was not very good. But again, it was due to the fact I was not very good in using filters.

Very nice looking analog camera

By

from Spokane, WA  -  Pro Photographer

Recently I do process my own b/w and color negative films and then scan and digitizing them for fine arts and hobby purposes... And used this Nikon FM-10 resul is much better than my mega pixel digital cameras... And still more fun doing analog and traditional photography instead of digital photography!

Best Basic Camera

By

from SoCal

This is hands down the best manual camera you can buy new today. Whether you're goal is building up a solid foundation in film photography or doing advanced hipster lomo, you can't go wrong. Besides this camera being brand new, it is also reasonably well made. You really can't ask for better quality in this price range. Another great feature is that the FM10 is compatible with almost all FX lenses, making it easy to streamline your equipment.
