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 !

Cool Argust 19th

Was trying to figure out the logic for the date. Now I get it. So 19th of next month?

Finally have a specimen where the controls do work. Kind of.

I'm going to give the Argus K another once-over, to see if I can find that light leak and then shoot it for Argus Day.

Haven’t forgotten. I have a roll in my Markfinder with several Argust 19th frames. Being the cheapskate that I am, developing will have to wait till I finish the roll.
