    This is an argoflex FORTY TLR that takes 620 film and makes a 6x6 image. The flash attachment is easily detachable and yet has no corrosion; I guarantee it will work with the right batteries. Shutter speeds of 1/25th to 150th, aperture of 4.5 to 22. Scale focus from roughly 3' to infinity (seems like it could be closer, but the scale runs out making it hard to determine)

    The shutter works well, though I can't vouch for its accuracy. The lens is surprisingly capable in the right hands, and if not, you can just marvel at the WLF! Perfect for those sad-sap Thru-The-Viewfinder'ers out there..

    All the optics are nice and clean, 620 spool included, pure bakelite I think.

    $15 shipped in the US; international is welcome.
