Great Camera

  • Excerpt: I needed a camera for a class I am taking so I looked for the one that gave the most options with a comparative cost. This one fit the bill. My instructor was impressed and I know I will get much use out of it.

Consider a used older model instead

  • Excerpt: If you're a student, I would urge you to look for a used camera in good condition, such as a Nikon FM or Canon AE-1, preferably with a 50mm non-zoom lens. You will save a couple hundred dollars and have a superior camera.

It's great... if you get one that works.

  • Excerpt: (Rounding up, since I can't give it 2.5 stars) It's a simple camera with a simple purpose, and that purpose is to take pictures on 35mm film, which is luckily making something of a comeback in recent years.
  • Pros: Fingertip Controls, Lightweight
  • Cons: Easily Marked, Poor construction

Great beginner's film camera

  • Excerpt: I am a photography student and had to take a film class. I bought this camera after I had a used one that kept breaking and ruining my film. It was definitely worth the extra money to get this one.

broke after five rolls

  • Excerpt: I was eager to use this camera, as it was similar to one my father had used. It's lightweight, and easy to learn to use. Sadly, after shooting a mere five rolls of film, while on a photo workshop, the shutter jammed and broke. The camera will be on its way back to B&H shortly.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Broke After 5 Rolls

Decent..But no reason to get it

  • Excerpt: I own five Nikon bodies: FE, FM3a, F2 (x2), and a D3200, as well as a solid lens collection. Bassed off of my experience with those cameras and my handling of the FM10 while at my university, I just don't see the value in purchasing this camera.

Film SLR? Digital SLR? Choose Nikon

  • Excerpt: All features of this camera are manual. I am currently using this film camera for portrait photography. Whether you are developing in the darkroom or using a negative scanner, this camera is relatively easy to use and the manual in box explains all of its capabilities.
  • Pros: Comfortable Design, Compact, Depth Of Field Button, Design, Multiple Exposures, Simple Controls
  • Cons: Counter May Be Inaccurate

What a great film camera!

Fine 35mm Camera

  • Excerpt: This is a fun 35mm camera which is full frame, film technology. The FM10 is a relatively inexpensive option as compared to the second-hand market. It is completely manual with a built-in light meter.
  • Pros: Comfortable Design, Loads Of Fun, Simple Controls, Teaches Not To Chimp
  • Cons: Film Advance Lever

Not Bad

Chris, B&H Photo
29 September 2014
  • Excerpt: It's an all manual film camera so you need to learn about its functions or else you won't know what is going on. Going from digital SLR to a Film SLR will help getting to use the camera but there are some functions that the Digital SLR doesn't have.
  • Pros: Fast Film Loading, Meters Well
  • Cons: Complicated Controls, Uncomfortable Design
