The Nikon FM

The Nikon FM

A friend asked me to take some old cameras off her hands. I figured a few busted up plastic pocket cameras. While there were definitely a couple of those, there were also some real treasures. They were even in remarkably good condition.

The Nikon FM was a mid-range camera produced in the last 70’s and early 80’s. It was simple and easy to use but solid as a rock and very functional. It is fully manual and only requires batteries to operate the TTL meter.I can’t wait to put some film in this thing!

The Polaroid “Highlander” was a roll film camera produced between 1954 and 1961. There were 3 models in the series and 2 of them were included in the bundle from my friend. It’s too bad you can’t get film for these gems because these two were also in fantastic condition.

There were other little gems in the bundle, including a Kodak Brownie and an 8mm movie camera. I used to have a small collection of vintage cameras that somehow disappeared a few years ago. I hadn’t been too terribly interested in restarting my collection after loosing them, but now the interest has rekindled. I’m now on the hunt for cool little gems like these. Looking to unburden yourself from a box of unused cameras? I’m your guy!
