    Oupps, j'oublie ma langue maternelle : http://www.analogphotoday.com/

    Je ne suis pas certain que cela dirige vers la version française. Si ce n'est pas le cas, il suffit de choisir "français" dans le menu déroulant à droite.

    While I haven't yet seen a mention of it, 08/08/08 is theoretically Argus Day; ("Argust 8th"). This sounds like a perfect chance to accomplish two things at once. :smile:

    (My C3 is about as analogue as it gets ...)

    Every day is analogue photo day here of course, but something like this looks like fun and if it can get some coverage it can help go against the idea that digi is the only way to go amongst the greater public.

    Oops, sorry, almost missed your question. Since 2001, a group calling itself the "Argus Collectors Group" has organized a one day event, "Argus Day," where one is supposed to go out and take photos with an Argus camera. They have picked a date of August n, 200n, so last year it was August 7th. They have gotten cute and referred to the day as "Argust 7th" or whatever. (Not sure if it is planned to be mn for 20mn when we hit 2010.)

    It appears to be a fairly small group and so far I've seen nothing about an event for this year -- which should fall on Argust 8th , according to the algorithm. Anyhow, I've shot a roll with my C3 for Argus Day the last two years, so this year it could work for both events.

    The ACG does have some repair manuals online which I found handy for doing a CLA on my C3.

    Great coincidence.:smile:

    This camera looks great. I love to take picture with old cameras.

    I'll give it a go, nothing like a deadline to get me motivated. Keep us posted on the participation. I tried to access the members page but it returned a white page so you might want to have a look at that.

    Good luck,
    Sean

    Hello Sean,

    thank you very much for your encouragement ! :smile:

    It's not easy to start a project,
    but Analog Photo Day was born in 2008, that's most important...:wink:

    What?! I though EVERY day was Analog Photo Day?

    Honestly, why promote a single day on *this* Website, which is the same exact thing as Analog Photo Day, but every day? Why not try convincing the boobs at Photo.net, the McPhoto Website?

    ("On the 08/08/08, all over the world,
    you are invited to shoot a non digital picture, and to put it online in our gallery"

    This above quote is just funny sounding!)
