About this item

The FM3A inherits most of the FM2's features, like durable metal body construction and a classic centre-weighted meter. And the Nikon's first hybrid shutter control system enables mechanical shutter speed control to be operated without batteries at any shutter speed, while in A mode the shutter speed is electronically controlled for Aperture-Priority Auto operation. In addition, TTL (through-the-lens) flash control, DX-coded film speed settings and bright view focusing screens are also available. These features provide an unprecedented degree of flexibility in a manual SLR with the added benefits of selected automation.

The FM3A offers photographers access to the Nikon System, which includes the professional AF-S Nikkor lens lineup and many other AF and manual Nikkor lenses, in addition to a range of accessories.

With its classic exterior, simple operation and compact body design, the FM3A is the ideal camera for gaining entry into the world of pure, personal SLR photography.
