This film camera I “borrowed” from my daughter.She used it when she was going to college in Germany, to take photos of actors while they performed in stage shows. 

If you’re interested in learning more about this camera, you can go to Wikipedia, where the camera is explained in depth. Basically, its a manual focus camera, works without batteries (but if installed, provides a light meter), has an advanced titanium shutter (certain models), and is rugged and durable. It was manufactured from 1982 – 2001 by the company now known as Nikon (called Nippon Kogaku K.K. back then). 

If you wish to purchase one of these cameras nowadays, they are much more expensive then say a Pentax K1000. Expect to pay at least $150 for the body alone. They are well made, and are very sought after.

The following images were taken in downtown Historical Gilbert using the Nikon FM2.
