Nikon FM Chrome 35mm Camera w/ 50mm f1.8 AI-S Lens -New Seals-
This is one of my all time favorite cameras. My first serious camera was an FM (not this one) and I took some of my favorite photos with it. It also survived several uncontrolled trips down ice covered stairs during Ithaca winters (Cornell University: clear the snow before it freezes!)
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.
It comes ready to shoot with a nice 50mm f1.8 Series E lens.
This camera is in great condition with light wear and works perfectly. The body is in great shape cosmetically, there is only minor wear from normal use. The lens has clean, scratch free glass and smooth operation. The shutter is strong and accurate at all speeds. The light meter is accurate.
Our technician has replaced the light seals, a $75 value. The lens cap and batteries are included.
This is a nice one.
