Nikon FM Chrome Early Version Camera Body -Bargain, As Is, New Light 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.
This camera looks good but has a few minor condition issues. There are two stripes of degradation in the prism that are ever so slightly visible while in use. There is also a moderate amount of dust in the viewfinder. Otherwise, the camera is in good condition and the light meter and shutter are accurate. We have replaced the light seals, a $75 value.
Get a good deal on a nice camera! This is an as is sale.
