Argus C3 Rangefinder Camera

Argus C3 Rangefinder Camera

My first 35mm camera. It was a POS but it was all I had at the time and I learned a lot from it. I keep it for sentimental value. Otherwise it is pretty much worthless. The focusing mechanism failed years ago and the shutter now refuses to operate.

other sizes: small medium large original

My first camera as well. In 1964, while parked in Greenwich Village, my car was broken into and the camera was stolen. Thanks for putting yours up for viewing, it brings back many memories.

My firsr cameara also! It was difficult guessing exposures. I think I bought mine in 1963-64 at a PX on an Army Base in Germany. Thanks for rekindling fond memories!

Hi Elliot: I had one of these also...It wasn't the first, but was a mainstay in high school as I shot pictures of my classmates. Bill
