Chronology of cameras Argus 

Traduction de Manuel M

Post-war period, Argus re-used the basis of the Argus M to release a “new” camera. However, the new one puts off of former in many points.
The general form remains the same one, but the lens did not go up any more on a retractable tube. The tube became fixed and much more cumbersome. The lens is less luminous, since it is from now on about a 9,7/47mm. There are however three apaertures whose adjustment is made by an indication “météo': Bright, Cloudy, Color. There is always only one instantaneous speed moreover the pose.

With the back, there is no more that only one green window, because the camera became mono-Format.
