Nikon FM Chrome 35mm Camera w/ Brown Leather & 50mm f1.8 AI-s Lens -New Seals-

*This is the first version of the FM with the cool knurling (bumps) around the shutter release. Note that it also has an On/Off switch surrounding the shutter release.

 

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.

 

We have tons of Nikon lenses so we can kit you out!

 

This one is in beautiful condition with redone brown leather. It's a nice look against the chrome that doesn't feel to flashy. It works nicely with the black and red components of the camera as well.

 

Mechanically the camera is working perfectly, the shutter speeds and meter are accurate. The camera comes ready to shoot with the excellent 50mm f1.8 metal bodied E series lens. The lens is also in great condition with clean scratch free glass and no haze or fungus. The focus is smooth and the aperture is dry and snappy. Our technician has replaced the light seals, a $75 value.

 

Batteries are included as well as a lens cap.

 

This is a nice one.
