Nikon FM10 35mm SLR Film Camera

The Nikon FM10 is a single-lens reflex (SLR) manual focus 35mm film camera distributed by Nikon. Along with the professional Nikon F6, the FM10 is the last of two film-based cameras offered by Nikon. The FM10 is manufactured by Japanese company Cosina and simply carries the Nikon name.

Aside from the through-the-lens light meter system that runs on a small battery, the Nikon FM10 is completely manual and has zero automated features. As a result, the Nikon FM10 is inexpensive and recommended for beginner film photographers who want to learn the art.
