Fine 35mm Camera

Kasloguy, B&H Photo
1 October 2014
  • 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. I am old enough to remember using film when it was all that was available and while I play with digital, I love my FM-10. I am even going to develop my own B&W film. (CON) The film advance lever must be kept away from the body slightly to allow the shutter to trigger.
  • 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. Film cameras are definitely harder to work with because you really have to know your f stops, shutter speed and ISO or else your picture will not turn out right when developing it.
  • Pros: Fast Film Loading, Meters Well
  • Cons: Complicated Controls, Uncomfortable Design

Poor College Student Camera

CollegeStudent, Nikon
31 August 2014
  • Summary: I go to Pacific Northwest College of Art in Oregon, I needed a solid Nikon 35mm film camera to go along with all my digital lens I have for the D3. I expected Nikon to have quality standers in the products they make, but the Nikon FM 10 let me down. A) Metering was always off by one of two stops never predicable. I compared it with a very nice studio meter. B) The whole body is plastic don't let the colors fool you.

Review from a D3300 owner.

JaPes, Nikon
7 August 2014
  • Summary: I am an amateur photography enthusiast. Back when I was in college in the early 90's, I wanted to take up photography. I never had the free time to take a photography class or the extra money to develop prints. I knew I'd spend a bunch of money and film learning the proper camera settings through trial and error. Fast forward to 2014, and I have a D3300. I'm able to play with settings, take as many pictures as I want, delete bad ones and keep good ones.

Cosina CT-1

  • Pros: Comfortable Design, Compact, Fast Film Loading, Meters Well, Simple Controls

Perfeita para quem quer estudar fotografia!

Marcelo Passos, Nikon
11 March 2014
  • Summary: Perfeita para quem estuda fotografia e quer entender e ter domínio sobre a técnica fotográfica. Por se tratar de uma câmera quase que toda manual (com exceção do fotômetro), permite ter o controle total da produção da foto. É uma câmera robusta, confiável e muito precisa.

Simple Camera, Great Results

MMcHale, Nikon
2 January 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this camera basically new and without any wear. I found it easy to use the first time I picked it up. The photos from the lens it comes with are very clear, and the shutter produces a satisfying click. I really enjoy using this camera.
