Type/Model: Argus C3 Made in USA with tele 100mm/f4.5 lens
Comments: Vintage cameras have to be cleaned up and lubricated and this one here has been sitting around in some corners for the past 20-30 years collecting dust! The viewfinder and rangefinder needs to be cleaned and adjusted while the leatherette needs to be changed for good. Fairly easy to disassemble this one.
Again using the croc-type leatherette, I gave this old vintage a new croc look! So handsome now!
Type/Model: Argus C4 1951-1958 Made by Argus Cameras, Inc., Ann Arbor, MI USA
Comments: A very nice vintage 1950s camera made in the USA. I did some cleaning on the blurry simple view finder and took the opportunity to adjust the rangefinder by opening the top cover. Having cleaned the lens and lubricated some mechanical parts, I decided to change the old leatherette for a new croc-skin type. It looks better and handsome now!
