The Argus C3 is a 35mm camera first manufactured in 1939 with production lasting into the 1960's. Because of its boxy shape and durability it was often referred to affectionately as "the Brick". It had a manually focusing 50mm f/3.5 Cintar lens, a top shutter speed of 1/300 second, and a coupled rangefinder. It has a cool, art deco, retro design, and came in different colors. Working models can be found inexpensively on eBay.
|This is my personal model. It is in pristine shape and still works perfectly. I keep it at my studio where we haul it out occasionally to use as a prop that gives our photos a retro look.|
