Key Features

Film SLR: The FM10 is a film-based, manual SLR camera that uses 35mm film.

Usable Lenses: All NIKKOR AF-D, AI-P, AF-I, AI-S and AF-S lenses.

Note that AF-S NIKKOR lenses can be used with the FM10 however NIKKOR G lenses, which do not have an aperture ring can only be used at the lens' minimum aperture and can not be opened up.

Flash: Non-TTL method controlled from Speedlight.

Simple Camera, Great Results I purchased this camera basically new and without any wear. I found it easy to use the first time I picked it up. The photos from the lens it comes with are very clear, and the shutter produces a satisfying click. I really enjoy using this camera. January 2, 2014
Best Basic Camera This is hands down the best manual camera you can buy new today. Whether you're goal is building up a solid foundation in film photography or doing advanced hipster lomo, you can't go wrong. Besides this camera being brand new, it is also reasonably well made. You really can't ask for better quality in this price range. Another great feature is that the FM10 is compatible with almost all FX lenses, making it easy to streamline your equipment.

sea and sand welcome to Thailand. I enjoy to grab my love nikon fm10 and capture pictures during trip. this picture i took it from Hua Hin Beach. May 8, 2012
Still my all-time favorite camera Growing up, I learned the principles of photography on my father's Nikon F and F2 cameras. In 1997, I bought an FM10 for myself, and it has been my faithful friend and companion on trips all around the world -- my latest was a 6-week trip to Australia and New Zealand in 2011. The FM10's quality is outstanding, as you can expect from all Nikon products. Rugged, simple, easy-to-use, lightweight, and quick-loading, it is a delight to carry and use. I highly recommend the FM10 to film enthusiasts and people wanting to understand the rudiments of photography. I am preparing to purchase my first DSLR, the D7000, but in my heart I know that it will be the FM10 accompanying me on trips as long as 35mm film is available. April 23, 2012
The best camera I have ever owned! All I wanted for my birthday in 6th grade was this camera, we were living in Germany at the time, and I got it! I am 24 years old now and use this camera to this day, which makes this camera roughly 12 years old; I have used it literally all over the world! I love this camera, it definitely will not let you down. I uploaded a picture I took back in 6th grade, it's not the best in the world but hey I was in 6th grade! I'd recommend this camera to anyone!

Answer: 
No, DX lenses are optimized for digital cameras with DX sensors. Since DX sensors are smaller than a frame of 35mm film, vignetting will occur when using a DX lens on a film camera. Look for lenses without the DX designation, like the AF-S Micro 60mm f/2.8G ED lens, in order to avoid vignetting.

I additionally purchased a Nikkor 55-200 AF-S VR lens as well as an SB-600 flash. I simply HATE the D70. Way too many knobs and adjustments. Prefer a simple camera such as the Pentax K-1000 but the N65 will do for now. Will the D70 lenses work on the N65, as well as the SB-600? Thanks

Answer: 
The FM10 is a great camera to learn the basics of manual photography and exposure. All settings are adjustable. For beginner Digital SLR cameras the D3200 has a guide mode that will teach the basics of using the camera.
