The Brick

    Newer Older

    Argus C3 camera. The Argus C3 camera was one of the more massively produced american-made cameras. Some people credit it with making 35mm film the preferred amateur format film in the days where 120 and 620 film ruled. This particular sample is no longer functional unfortunately. The "Brick", as it was known because of it's shape, will remain one of the more significant players in the history of photography. Mamiya RB67, 90mm f/3.8 Mamiya Sekor C lens, Mamiya No 2 extension tube, Polaroid film back, Fuji FP-3000B instant film. Exposure was 1 sec at f/32.

      I've not yet attempted it, but they're supposed to be very easy to repair, a great first repair project. Might be worth a shot! Love the photo, shows off this slightly awkward but nonetheless classic design very well.

      I remember buying one in a pawn shop when I was in high school in about 1958. The price was right and it was my first real camera.
