Vintage Argus "The Brick"

The C3 is affectionately called ‘the Brick’ by devout users, (or ‘lunchbox’ in Japan if you believe wikipedia), obviously because of the size, weight and shape. The exposed gears design feature seems more along the lines of heavy industry as opposed to fine clockwork.

The ‘brick’ is an interchangeable lens camera, and when purchased new it came with an Argus Cintar 50mm F/3.5 lens, supposably a Leica Elmar clone, but there are also more lenses available from Argus, a 100mm telephoto, and 35mm wide angle, both ‘sandmar’ designated models.
