Relive the uniqueness of film photography with the Nikon FM2 35mm Film SLR. This camera accepts Nikon F bayonet mount lenses. The TTL full aperture exposure measuring system operates on two SPD cells and offers a working range of EV1– EV18 at ISO 100. With the eye-level optical viewfinder, you get 93% coverage of the actual image. You can also view the exposure scale, shutter speed, and f-stop value in the viewfinder. The camera uses a split-image microprism focusing screen. You can mount an external flash to the hot shoe or connect a wired flashbulb to the sync terminal. The camera runs on a single 3 V lithium battery, or two 1.55 V silver-oxide or 1.5 V alkaline-manganese batteries.
