First photo was in my backyard. The others were at the National Museum of Transportation, St. Louis, Missouri.
All images were hand held with available light.
Kodak 200 print film.
Argus C-four, s/n 0329457.
Acquired in online auction, the camera was in sad shape. I gave it an extensive cleaning and repair, replaced lubricants, adjusted and calibrated functions, and replaced the front glass element of the lens; there were a lot of scratches in the original piece of glass.

Cosinon f/1.7 50mm lens on Kodak T-Max ISO 100 35mm black & white
film. Set a small aperture (f/16) to get depth of field which also
helps lag the shutter a bit (1/100?) to get some motion blur on the
|Here is what I have from an Argus Geiss C Forty-four camera. Photos is on Fuji 200, handheld at truck window, as it was too bitter cold to use tripod and cable. I shot this at f5.6 1/15 sec. or 1/8, focus was just past the 50ft. mark. Too many cars were passing by on that street. Wind was up to 18mph. Between the mans yard light, and the different distances of the objects within the 40 feet from sidewalk to front of his house, I wanted it to appear as dark as I could behind them, without showing too much of the house. The big blue column is his Sycamore tree, and he's done a great job of placing the lights so each piece showed up at its max. I think the depressing of the shutter is what caused the slight double image. Love the results of the Cintagon f2.8 coated lens. This camera feels good in the hand.|
|Here are my entries, from my my first roll from my first Argus (a C4). It was my test roll, and I have to say I'm pretty pleased! I used Fujifilm Superia 400.|

Photo 3 New toy
three photos taken with an Argoflex EF on Kodak Ektar 100 film.
The first photo was taken with a Press 25 flashbulb, 1/50 at
f/18. I only wish I had a video camera rolling to capture their
reaction when the flash went off! The other two were long
exposures. The 2nd photo is of the bottom of the tree seen in the
first photo. The 3rd image was taken in the lobby of the Fulton
Steamboat Inn near Lancaster, PA.|
