Argus World Argosy III

Welcome to the home page of the Argus WORLD ARGOSY III, a very special project by and for the members of the Argus Camera
Collectors Group.

This is the Argus Collector's Group's THIRD attempt to pass a single Argus camera across the US and around the world.

From September 2002 through November 2004, forty-eight Argus fanatics passed a single Argus C3 camera across the United States, then to Australia and across Europe in the original Argus Argosy.  Each photographer submitted three photos taken with the camera which were published in an online gallery.

At that time the ACG attempted to start a second Argus Argosy, this time sharing a rare Argus olive Model A.  Unfortunately both the original World Argus C3 and the second World Argus Model A went missing presumably while in transit somewhere in South Africa.

Hoping the third time is the charm, the Argus Collector's Group is now organizing a third Argosy.  Will this one be successful?  Only time will tell but we hope so!

Special thanks to ACG Member William Lanteigne for donating the Argus C4 that will be used in this Argus Argosy and special thanks to Jaye W. and Ed Kowalski for tuning up and servicing this and previous World Argus cameras as needed.

Please email Wesley Furr, the Argus Argosy originator and coordinator, with any questions or comments.

For all participants - Please review the Rules for Participation for the Argosy III.

The World Argosy III has made news as it has traveled around the world!  Take a look at Argus Argosy in the News.
