Argus USA

 

 

Argus the most known and diffused camera prepared such interesting prototype just at the end of the first rangefinder era. Unhappily it did not reach the market

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a further development of the previous C-44 type, now incorporating the original revolving universal finder of the first series, coupling it to the rangefinder.

The main mechanical improvement is the lever advance addition.

 

 

This C-5 model, shares the same optics of  C-44

 

 

 

Above a C-44 camera and below a universal finder of the first series type, whose optics are used in the C-5 prototype
