I am an avid photographer and I love two brands of cameras, Canon and Nikon. The Nikon FM10 is a durable and dependable 35mm film camera. The kit comes complete with everything you will need to begin your new photographic adventure. My only concern for people that are not VERY familiar with cameras, is that you might now realize that this model is not automatic like the newer versions. If you have the time to spend focusing your subject-then this is a camera that will perform consistently for you. If you are brand new to photography and would like for your camera to do all of the focusing and other adjustments, you're likely better off at least reviewing the newer versions of this SAME camera.
I have used this camera over and over and over again. In all honesty, it's as good a camera as any at this level. The photos are always crisp and predictable and the body of the camera has held up well for over 7 years. I've found myself taking photographs and then the rain would come and soak myself and the camera. Even without proper water protection, the camera has not shown any problems or any sign of rusting.
You'll find it easy to load your film and quite easy to get used to taking great pictures. The lens that is included with the Camera Kit is a very good one and will serve most of your needs.Read more ›
They're very wrong. The camera's lighter than most manual cameras I've held, but it feels very sturdy. The lens it comes with is just fine for students and beginners, and I'll hold on to it even though I plan on getting a fixed 50mm Nikon lens very soon. Still, for the price, you can't beat it!
If you've read other reviews about how cheap this camera feels and you're weary, all I can say is go to a camera store and hold it. If you want something much more rugged you'll pay a lot more money. If you want something to start shooting with then get this camera. It'll also help you start building a good Nikon kit so if you decide to upgrade bodies later you won't have to repurchase all your lenses.
Great clarity, great quality
I am taking off one star because it is plastic. I don't like that and it takes something away from the feel of quality. There is something intangible about that. Now that this camera is retired, I would have expected that given the many years of use, I would feel more sentimental about it. I don't and I blame the plastic.
But plastic construction is where my criticism ends. Let me be clear: this camera is a work horse and looks pretty much as new after about 10 years of use and abuse. The only apparent wear and tear is on the lens. Also, in terms of design, it is an elegant looking camera.
I have taken it on many trips abroad as a student and have brought it to remote wilderness areas. I even dropped it into a lake once. The film was obviously ruined, but I immediately opened it up and dried it out in the sun. Nothing happen to it! I've never had any mechanical problems with the camera and the the pictures that it produces are great!
I don't believe any reviewer who says that this thing is not durable because of its plastic construction. My guess is that people just assume that it won't last. I think this really is just an aesthetic issue.
What I really like about this camera is the very large (although slightly dim) viewfinder. The camera is just asking to be held up to your eye. The lens is good but also plastic with cheap looking aluminum mount . The focusing ring has a smooth and nicely dampened action. It's relatively small too.
I hate to say it, but in spite of the fact that this is a good camera, if I were to shop for a manual SLR all over again, I would purchase something that's metal. Having said that, I've never regretted owning it and I am happy with it. I would recommend it.
