Argus C3

This was the first camera I ever bought that had f stops and shutter speeds and just looked like a camera should. Knobby, gnarly and no nonsense. Argus sold millions of these and it's still possible to find them at yard sales. This is one of the first cameras I bought as a user. It took good pictures (in bright light) but was a little clumsy to use. Made in Ann Arbor, MI, from 1935 to 1968. I believe they sold for $70 new. It takes 35mm film.
