The Nikkormat series of cameras were solid, well-made all-metal SLRs from Nikon from 1965 through 1978. The most widespread and esily obtained model is the FTN. With the metal-bladed copal square shutter, and speeds from B to 1/1000 sec and a center-weighted 60:40% meter, it is a dependable workhorse of a camera. The only downside, is the use of mercury cells for the metering, which can be overcome with one of the C.R.I.S. adaptors to allow the use of silver-oxide batteries - well worth the expense. Mine still has a mercury cell in it.
I have been shooting with it again -- using color print film, and getting it developed and scanned at Walgreens. I paid 50 cents for the film -- expired Kodak Gold 100, and $5.15 for the develop and CD. The results are outstanding. Fun how a nearly 40 year old camera with cheap film can still compete with the DSLR for image quality.
