Argus M


Traduction de Christopher Solow

I was surprised by the small size of this Argus when I first received it ­ it has the spirit of both the C3 and the C4!
The lens is mounted on a retractable tube, and is protected by a small metal lens cap. The film advance button is located underneath the camera. The lineage of this camera follows the design tradition known as ³streamline.² The French camera that is most similar is the Photax Blindé.
In May, 1940, this camera cost $7.50 US dollars.
