History

The Argus c-four is the very worthy successor to the once-popular C3. Simple, handsome and rugged, it's got a great comfortable feel like the German and Russian classics at a significantly smaller price. Shutter speeds are limited to 1/10, 1/25, 1/50, 1/100, and 1/300 (kind of like a FED!) but there is an actual hotshoe, activated by an M-F switch beneath the eyepiece. It has a removable back for film loading similar to old Contax/Leica and Russian copies of those cameras. Takes very nice pictures with its sharp coated Cintar lens. And it's virtually vibration-free.
