NikonĀ EM

The Nikon EM was smallest and lightest of the Nikon SLR cameras. In attempt to capture an entry level market, it was offered at an economical price and included low cost E series lenses. Simple to operate, the camera operated in the AE auto exposure mode (the operator sets the aperture and the camera selects the correct exposure speed). A friendly electronic beep-beep aided in setting the correct exposure range. In addition the camera was able to exposure manually at 1/90 sec. if the battery went dead. The MD-E motor drive and SB-E electronic flash were dedicated accessories which could be added to the compact system.
