A basic, all-manual SLR combination for students, the FM10 35mm SLR Camera with 35-70mm Lens will help you learn the art of photography the old fashioned way. Load, advance, and rewind the film yourself. Determine exposure manually with just a simple match diode centerweighted meter, and enter the settings on the aperture ring and shutter speed dial. Use any Nikon F-mount lens which has an aperture ring. You'll only need small, long-lasting button batteries for the meter (the shutter is all-mechanical) and some film. The FM10 is a basic camera that's a great teaching instrument and fun, too.
