Marcy's Argoflex Seventy-five Camera Review:

 

Hey Look! An Argus I can handle! You ACG folks may be a bit miffed at my bumbling attempts at reviews of the C3 "bricks"...but I just can't seem to forgive Argus those silly split viewfinders. But the Seventy-five? Now, here's a simple, straight-forward, easy to use, no nonsense camera. I found it in a box of cameras that I bought for a buck apiece. I put a roll of 620 film through the Seventy-five and it gave me twelve 6x6 images. This twin lens ("Argus Lumar 75mm") camera is made of metal and weighs a healthy amount. It's got instant and time settings. The film fed smoothly from beginning to end. No problems. No light leaks. Oh...well...hmm...maybe that makes it a little boring? I took it to a haunted lighthouse and an abandoned army fort from World War II.

I also took this camera with me on my first Pintoid Adventure to Lake Superior:

 

A very cool lightning storm near Billings, MT.

Messed around with some old color film:

I actually took these shots for Argust 8th, then never submitted them. Story o' my life....
