Nikon FM Chrome (Early Version) Camera Body -Bargain, 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.
This camera looks good but has a few minor condition issues. There are two stripes of degradation in the prism that are slightly visible while in use. The multiple exposure lever is a little bit sticky, it needs a little bit of help to return to its starting position. Otherwise, the camera is in good condition and the light meter is accurate. Our technician has replaced the light seals, a $75 value.
Get a good deal on a nice camera! Batteries and a body cap are included.
