Nikon FM10 35mm Film SLR Camera with Zoom Nikkor 35-70mm F/3.5-5.6 Lens, Strap, Batteries - Fully Functional
Here we have the Nikon FM10 35mm film SLR camera with a Zoom Nikkor 35-70mm F/3.5-5.6 lens and strap. This camera is fully functional and is ready to produce another lifetime of fantastic photos. The camera is being sold at a discount due to the lens's name plate missing, as well as a chip in the filter threads. There is also a small crack in the plastic of the camera body just under the hotshoe and a small spot in the viewfinder. Despite these issues, they do not impact usage nor image quality in any way.
Aside from the issues listed, the camera is fully functional, and everything operates as it should. All switches, buttons, levers, and dials all operate correctly. The film compartment, battery compartment, viewfinder, lens mount, and mirror box are all clean and pristine.
The lens is functionally excellent. The glass elements are free of fungus, balsam separation, marring, and haze. The aperture blades are clean and dry, and actuate as they should. The focus and zoom mechanisms work perfectly, and the aperture ring clicks nicely.
The Nikon FM10 is the latest enthusiast-level Nikon film camera, and next to the professional-level F6 is one of only two film cameras currently in production from Nikon. It is an excellent camera for students, enthusiast photographers, and new film shooters alike.
It is a fully mechanical camera, meaning that it does not require batteries to operate. However batteries are required in order to use the built-in light meter. The mechanical shutter is capable of speed from 1/2000th of a second up to 1 second and Bulb mode. Flash sync is at 1/125 of a second.
The camera is very light at 450g, which is great for travelers and street shooters.
The camera is capable of mounting all manual focus Nikon F mount lenses made after 1977, which is an amazing number of available lenses. All Nikkor, Series E, and 3rd party lenses made after this time will mount to the camera, though modern autofocus lenses will have limited functionality (no aperture control or autofocus).
The camera will be carefully packaged and shipped immediately.
