Chronology of cameras Argus 

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

 

Autronic is a little a modernized “brick”. The body (out the part sheltering the finder) has besides same dimensions as those of the bricks C2 and C3. The lens became Cintar 2,8/50mm. It have only one finder in which the effects of the rangefinder are directly visible. The shutter release is in frontage. Around him is a large serrated roller of setting of the distance . A cell makes it possible to have an automatic exposure, which can be disconnected.
Last common point with “bricks”… the weight!!!
