The Argoflex E takes 12 ,6x6cm, images on 120 roll film. The shutter has "T" and "B" settings as well as 1/10th through 1/200th (no self timer). The aperture is f4.5 to f18. It focuses from 3.5 feet to infinity. It's got a wildly fun viewfinder hood complete with fold down flap so it become a sports finder ... there's even a little pop-up magnifier for fine focus - just like a real camera.

The fine focus magnifier.

When I got this camera, the shutter didn't work. I made it into a pinhole camera. I attached a store bought pinhole to the taking lens. The viewing lens actually came close to what I ended up with on the film.

Here are a few images I took with this camera as a pinhole:

 

The shutter has since been repaired by Jaye Waas, otherwise known to me as the Camera Whisperer.

McKeown's PRICE GUIDE TO  ANTIQUE & CLASSIC CAMERAS (2001-2002) states, "1940-1948. Focusing three element f4.5/75mm Varex Anastigmat; shutter T,B, 10-200. $20-30."
