It's OK, not great

Hawke, B&H Photo
23 February 2016
  • Excerpt: I was looking for a camera for my niece for her college photography class and picked the FM10 based on reviews. However I have to agree with some that point to the quality of this camera. I wasn't very impressed and ended up returning it.

Great Camera

T.J., B&H Photo
2 February 2016
  • 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.

Great beginner's film camera

Alexa, B&H Photo
10 November 2015
  • 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.

Decent..But no reason to get it

Zach, B&H Photo
31 August 2015
  • 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

Crystal Jade, B&H Photo
18 February 2015
  • 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.

Excellent camera, hope it never disappears

  • Summary: I got this camera back in 2007 when I was only in 8th grade, and it has been fantastic. I've taken hundreds of pictures and it has never once let me down. The original light-meter battery still works, and the rest of the camera has remained durable.

What a great film camera!

  • Excerpt: This is a terrific film camera especially well suited for student use. A "throwback" to the classic SLRs of yesteryear with manual controls all around. Simple to operate great all around. Highly recommended.

Fine 35mm Camera

Kasloguy, B&H Photo
2 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.
