Cheapest 35mm SLR Review - Nikon FM10


Speaking of film photography, the inexpensive Nikon FM10 is what come to my mind naturally. Though built with cheap light plastics and aluminum, its main draw of course, comes with continuous operation without the need of batteries. (Though 2 SR-44/LR44 powers her metering circuit). In certain dicey situations, this can be a life saver.

A credit to all film photographer - ability to use ISO 25 film! I have shot as low as ISO 100 professional film but never to 25. I wonder how cool is that? That aside, its just a very simple camera to carry and use. A more detailed brochure can be found [here].

Hey, at $350 and 200g, who's complaining? Let's move on to something close to our own size, like the Nikon FM5?
