The FM2 originally used an advanced Nikon-design, metal-bladed, bearing-mounted, vertical-travel focal plane shutter with a (then unheard-of) speed range of 1 to 1/4000th second plus Bulb, plus a fast flash X-sync of 1/200th second.
The FM2 is a member of the classic Nikon compact F-series SLRs and was built using the same material - copper-aluminium-silicon (copper-silumin) alloy - as the earlier Nikon FM (introduced in 1977) and FE (1978) cameras. The Nikon FE2 and FA of 1983 also had this silumin alloy construction, along with the limited production Nikon FM3A of 2001, although the design of the housing differs from model to model.
Here's a collection of 15 wonderful shots taken by using Nikon FM2 cameras. You can also find more information about Nikon FM2 through Wikipedia page or view much more photos through Nikon FM2 Flickr group, a group dedicated to Nikon FM2 (and FM2n) cameras around the world to share its photos and discuss all things camera related.
