I thought the Fm10 was outsourced and is produced by another camera make, the nikon name is the only thing of value on it.
Yeah, it's a Cosina camera with a F mount.
NSXType- I know nothing about the film line of Nikon. I need model numbers to search for. I'm cool with plastic parts. I have NEVER shot film, so I don't need anything grand for my 1st film camera. I'll look in to those F3-6 that were mentioned.
Personally, I like the metal bodies of old cameras, I don't really like plastic ones. But the Cosina camera shouldn't be all too bad. It's just that used old film cameras are selling at the same price or less than the FM10.
Check B and H for their used prices of old film SLRs.
And yes, B and H still sell the F100 new. :D
