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 !

Tiffen Aperture Control Adapter

A hard to find accessory, the Tiffen Aperture Adapter is great for being able to change settings when you have a Series Filter Holder attached to the older style Argus 3.5/50 Coated Cintar. One of the two reasons I bought this particular camera, the other being the standard accessory shoe that has replaced the original L-3 Meter shoe.

I see the little yoke style one more often. This is only the second of this type I've ever seen.

I love how we have to buy the entire camera to pick up accessories like these.

Ever come across the ratcheting add-on wind lever? I missed out on one last year. Ugly, but so cool.

Yeah, soon I'll have enough bricks for a wall.
