Question for the photography people

My dad recently gave me is Nikon FM and we can't seem to find the flash that he had for it. So I was wondering if anyone on here might know what would work with it and where could I get it?

RE: Question for the photography people


A truly great camera from the days of enormous technical development of the Single Lens Reflex Cameras. I never owned a Nikon, but have had a few Pentax, Minolta and now, Canon film cameras and an Olypus Digital unit.

Any decent modern flash will work. Flash units come in two basic types, the ones that mount on the camera and the ones that don't. Those on the camera fit into a "hot shoe" fitting on the top of the prism case that has electrical connections to synchronize it to the camera's exposure system. The flash is powered by its own batteries. These are very automated and work very well, except when taking photos of people or pets looking at the camera. They can make very intense red eye effects because the flash is so close to the lens. The flash lights up the target's retinas and they show up intensely. The others are typically either set up on a tripod or hand held by an assistant or a long armed photographer with the camera on a tripod. These use a threaded connection to synchronize the flash with the shutter.

Check this site out for information on your camera:

Hope this helps, Jim

Try this.

You may have to go to a authorize Nikon dealer.

I took this picture in Alaska with a Nikon F100. I had generic lenses and flashes. As soon as I got to a Wolf/Ritz Camera, I purchased the Nikon lenses. I will never use a generic Lens or flash again.
