Nikon EM was introduced in 1979. It was the first model in a revised design concept by Nikon to introduce a series of ultra compact bodies characterized by compactness, light weight, easy to use, yet still possesses some quality as other Nikon bodies.It was manufactured by Nippon Kogaku K. K. (today Nikon Corporation) in Japan from 1979 to 1982 (available new from dealer stock until circa 1984).

Taking pictures with the EM is really easy. In technical term, it uses an aperture priority automatic exposure control system. In operation, just set a shooting aperture on the lens. Then, focus and shoot. The EM will automatically select the right shutter speed to match the user selected aperture value for proper exposure. If the shutter speed goes outside of the “safe” range of approx. 1/30 to 1/1000 sec., there is even an electronic “beep-beep” quietly warns you to readjust the aperture before taking the picture !


The design of Nikon EM was trying to expand out from the saturated high-end professional market and appeal to the large mass of low-end amateur photographers who were itching to move up from compact automatic leaf-shutter rangefinder (RF) cameras to an SLR, but were intimidated by the need to learn the details of operating a traditional SLR.
