What camera body do you have? You may have your depth of field preview button stuck. I picked up a Canon T90 in mint condition but the lcd was blinking EEE. All the problem was the depth of field preview lever below the lens was stuck. With a little extra force and some silicone spray lubricant repaired the flashing EEE problem.

I too like old school camera, mine are the N2000, N6006, N80, and F100. First without film in the camera I would attempt to release the shutter. If it does then there is something going on with the film transfer causing a bind.
However, If it continues not to release the shutter I would put the FM10 on the shelf then go to KEH.com for another. Just now checked KEH.com, 2014-05-26, a FM10 in EX condition is $89, EX+ condition $99. That would be a much better move than repairing yours and less expensive.
Hello, depending on the class he is taking you may find that a normal digital camera will suffice. Most camera classes and courses now use digital, unfortunately the old film cameras are becoming a thing of the past. If your son is a mad keen photographer then I would consider investing in his future and buy him a good quality digital SLR. I hope this is somewhat helpful.
turn the advance lever to charge the shutter.or open the film door and rotate the drive sprocket to the right, this will release the button. if the button didn't pop up then the bottom cover will have to be removed in order to release it manually.
Hey matty reps, You are attempting one of the most challenging types of photography there is, because you are combing nighttime photography and action photography. If you want to stop the action you normally would be using the highest shutter speed possible, but since you are trying to take nighttime action photographs I would rely on a flash since the flash duration in essence becomes your shutter speed. I would definitely use a hotshoe mounted flash because the built in flash will most likely not be powerful enough for your needs. I would have the camera set to aperture priority so I could control the depth of field, because the smaller the aperture the larger depth of field you will have and the less likely your subject will be out of focus. If you are attempting natural light nighttime action photography you will definitely need a very fast film speed such as 3200 speed film which will provide significant loss of image quality. You will also need a very fast lens meaning a lens with an aperture of at least f2.8 or larger, and your camera in this scenario should be set to shutter priority so you can set the camera to the fastest shutter speed possible but this will present focusing issues. In both scenarios I would have the AF system set to continuous so the camera doesn't require you to achieve focus to be able to trip the shutter. As in all challenging photography situations more photos are better than less, because you should have more failed photos than successful. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
1) turn the mode switch/knob on the left of the camera to M ( manual mode )
2) turn your lens to the highest f-stop ( 22 or 16 depending on your lens )
3) in front of shutter release button you have control for your aperture : turn until the desired aperture is displayed ( view finder or the LCD monitor on the top )
4) your shutter speed setting is controlled with your thumb with the control situated next to the strap lug on the right hand side of the camera.
5) press shutter release half way and look through viewfinder and see light meter reading and adjust either shutter speeds or the aperture as explained being guided by the l.meter.
Autofocus Lock ("AF-L"). Pressing the AF-L (Autofocus Lock) button enables the Nikon F4 to lock the focus. Simultaneous lock of AF-L and AE-L is possible. "'FREEZE FOCUS" - is another great function in the F4. It allows automatic shutter release when subject enters a pre focused distance - available with Nikon MF-23 and/or the 250 exp. MF-24 Multi-Control Back. i.e. with the shutter button fully depressed, the shutter is automatically fired when a subject comes into a preset manually focused position. This function is recommended for sports races because the racing course is usually known beforehand. It also works well in wildlife remote control photography, scientific, forensic and other technical photography.
