Nikon FM2 in black with Vivitar 28mm f:2.8 wide angle lens, with original instruction manual.
The Nikon FM2 is an almost fully-manual, semi-professional interchangeable-lens 35mm SLR camera manufactured by Nikon from 1983 through 2001. The FM2 is known for what was at the time an advanced shutter design. The various versions can be simply divided into two:
- The FM2, manufactured through to 1984
- The FM2n, manufactured from 1984 and on.
The primary difference between the two was an increase in the Xsync time (from 1/200 to 1/250). Early shutters were made from titanium; however, from 1989, for the FM2n, manufacturing technology had advanced sufficiently to allow for aluminum to be used.
The FM2's shutter was completely mechanical yet was capable of speeds from 1s through 1/4000th. This was unheard of at the time it was made. The camera also had an extremely high level of manufacturing quality; this could be felt in the extremely smooth mechanical functionality of the camera, such as the film advance lever.
