The Nikon FM2 was so strong that proponents of it were known to deliberately drop it on the ground to show off its invincibility. It was a heavy, reliable camera that sold very well, presumably as most other cameras at the time were relying on electronic automation and lightweight construction as their key selling points. First produced in 1984, it cost about 40% more than other SLRs of the time. It had a mind blowing fastest shutter speed of 1/4000th of a second. It is completely operable without batteries; a rarity for any gadget that was in production up until 2001.

Michael Bradfield has produced a series of highly detailed photographs of 20th Century film cameras reflecting his commercial still life work. They are beautifully lit in his studio and then deep etched for printing, to best show the classic design elements of these historic analogue cameras. All the wear and tear of these cameras are celebrated with revealing lighting. Isolating the subject on a pure white background gives these iconic cameras the status they deserve.
