Argus RF Forum for Argus RF nuts. The American made Argus C-3 may be the most prolific rangefinder, with over 3 million cameras produced! While American RF nutz of the 1950's may have yearned for a Leica, Zeiss, Canon or Nikon, most of them used an Argus !

Argus C3, Sandmar100

Finally got the test roll back from the C3 DanOnRoute66 so graciously sent me for the Christmas giveaway. Thanks again Dan!
Cant remember where I was when I took this one:



I have to remind myself to compose generously with the clip-on viewfinder:

Hi Matthew,

Nice shots with your C3. I saw your Crap game photos over at PN too.

Thanks! I'll post those here also as this Argus RF section seems to be limping along...
Also shot with the Sandmar 100. PlusX and no lightmeter so I just kept my fingers crossed:

Just enough light to make out what's going on in those. Gives me the idea of a smoke-filled speak-easy


That reminds me, I got to pick up some negatives today that I shot with my Argus A, And I've been sitting on some Ektar 100 film shot through a C-44 that I need to post-process and post.

Somehow I missed these when you initially posted them, Matthew. Photos look good! I love to see old cameras get a new lease on life.
