FM2N MANUAL PDF

Edit The Nikon FM2 is well known for its durability. In a time where many manufacturers were switching to electronic mechanisms, most devices on the FM2 were built entirely mechanically. Many FM2s remain in service to this day, while many other cameras from that time no longer work. Many parts were designed to be self-lubricating, and so very little, if any, maintenance is required of the owner other than maintenance one would expect with an SLR of course.

Features[ edit ] Like its predecessor, the FM, the FM2n has a long-standing reputation for reliability and durability. The Nikon FM2 in black. This shutter was able to reach such ultra-fast speeds because its titanium honeycomb curtains had a travel time of 3. The only external differences were the red setting on the shutter speed dial and the N serial number prefix.

Advances in metallurgy proved the suitability of high-strength aluminum as a substitute for the expensive titanium used in the shutter, and was adopted for the FM2n in The only way to identify the different versions is to inspect the shutter—the early FM2n had honeycombed shutter blades and the late FM2n had smooth blades. The "T" stood for titanium, which was the material used for the top and bottom plates along with the camera back. Between circa to , there was a dramatic shift away from heavy all-metal manual mechanical camera bodies to much more compact bodies with integrated circuit IC electronic automation.

In addition, because of rapid advances in electronics, the brands continually leapfrogged each other with models that had new or more automatic features. SLR camera manufacturers were attempting to expand from the high-end professional and semi-professional market to the growing consumer market. Against this backdrop, the FM2 may have seemed an anachronism, yet it sold well. It was a reliable, durable mechanical camera in a time of ever-increasing electronic automation, and often, less durable construction.

The FM2 was not designed for budget-minded snapshooters who would never bother to learn to use shutter-speeds and aperture settings, but rather was intended to appeal to serious photographers who demanded a tough, rugged camera.

Nippon Kogaku believed that advanced photographers were not interested in every possible automated bell and whistle, but rather in high quality and precision worksmanship. The FM2 remained in limited production until , long after many other more complex electronic designs from the s had not only left the market, but become inoperable. Many professional photographers continue to use the FM2 as a backup camera, both because of its ruggedness and because it is capable of full mechanical operation with all features except the light meter, even without a battery.
