History

The boxy, auto-exposure Argus Autronic 35 rangefinder camera (with a plain silver shutter button) was occasionally labeled as the "Autronic C3" and as Autronic I.<br> But in March 1962 Argus launched two successor models: The revised Autronic I upgraded to an f/2.8 Cintar lens; while the Autronic II also adds a new and enlarged bright-frame viewfinder. Both had a new black shutter button threaded for a cable release.<br> Pricing was USD $79.95 and $99.95, respectively.</p>
<p>Just months after this introduction, Argus merged with Mansfield Industries; and as of December, production of these (and other) models moved to their production facility in tiny Spring Grove, Minnesota. This ended the era of building cameras in Ann Arbor which had begun with the Argus A in 1936</p>
