20 Most Recent Nikon FM10 35mm SLR Camera Questions & Answers


Hello Blair,
I too like old school camera, mine are the N2000, N6006, N80, and F100. First without film in the camera I would attempt to release the shutter. If it does then there is something going on with the film transfer causing a bind.

However, If it continues not to release the shutter I would put the FM10 on the shelf then go to KEH.com for another. Just now checked KEH.com, 2014-05-26, a FM10 in EX condition is $89, EX+ condition $99. That would be a much better move than repairing yours and less expensive.

Hi Carrie,
A number of things could be the cause, camera and processing. If it is C41, negative film, we will rule out processing.

Another thing is your camera may not be setting the exposure correctly. Are you setting the exposure manually or automatically? With the camera in automatic exposure open the back, point to a bright spot press the shutter, do you see light? Then Set the camera to one second, and at the widest aperture, say f2.8, open the back press the shutter, now do you see light?

Depending on the results you will need to decide if the camera is worth repairing or a new/used one is in your future.

I can't speak to the FM10 specifically, however nikon has a few standardized positions for the serial number. It may be embossed in in small numbers on the metal at the top back above the film door. Or on the bottom. If you can't find it, I would go to the Nikon USA website. You can e-mail there support department by following this link: Contact Nikon Customer Service Call Nikon Technical Support

Not sure exactly which piece you mean, but take a look at http://uscamera.com/fe10-fm10.htm

If the "edge numbers" are present on the developed film it is not a processing error. Most likely the film is not advancing, film was not loaded properly of the shutter is not working.
