Nikon FM Black Camera Body (Early Version) -No Meter, Good Seals-
For those who do not know these cameras they are the zenith of classic manual focus design. They are surprisingly small, feel great in your hand and have a huge viewfinder, larger than the later HP designs (it is true!) and drastically larger than current digital cameras.
These cameras are perfect for people who know how to use a camera and prefer to set the controls directly rather than relying on automatic settings and menus and they are also the best way to learn photography.
This is the first version of the FM with the cool knurling (bumps) on the rewind knob. Note that it has an On/Off switch surrounding the shutter release.
We have tons of Nikon lenses so we can kit you out!
This camera is in great condition with moderate wear. The camera works well mechanically and the shutter is strong and accurate at all speeds, but the meter is not responding accurately to light changes with fresh batteries.
There is a small dent on the bottom plate and a few spots of dust on the focusing screen, but these are only cosmetic and do not affect the function of the camera. Otherwise the camera looks good with a cool amount of brassing on the edges.
The light seals are in good condition. Get a good deal on a nice camera.
