Nikon EM

The Nikon that everybody wants to forget. I used to think the same until a friend of mine bought one. Wow, this is a very compact SLR! Real petite! There are lots of plastic, and the specs are very limited, aperture priority only, no exposure compensation, no spot metering, but an ingenious articulated film advance lever, neat. The viewfinder is great for such a modest and humble camera, needless to say, no DSLR comes close to it, except the very expensive ones. Despite its build (a similar Praktica BCA seems built to survive the 3rd WW), it is a very handsome camera and a real Nikon, as it gives you the keys to the Nikon world for very little.
