    Thank you Rick,,,you have some great supportive posts. I have a handful of point and shoots that came in wholesale lots. Haven't tested. Your welcome to them to hand-out to the neighborhood kids if your still involved with that. Just PM me.

    edit: neighboorhood replaced. my fingers and my brain don't get along to well.

    Thanks for the offer Focus, but the local 4H pulled the plug on most of the art programs this year, and the kids I have been shooting with are falling away. I still have a couple of kids, and this summer they got to shoot some Velvia courtesy of Anscojohn(muchas gracias AJ)and loved it. We are putting a slide show together, just waiting for the last rolls to return from Fuji processing to finish up. I have no idea what they are going to offer for arts next year, I am staying in touch with them to push for photography, maybe it will be partially funded, or at least let me offer it at my expense.

    Looking forward to your Argus Day C-3 celebration results!
    Nah, one step at a time! There are manuals on line if you don't have one. They are definitely not automatic. Mine is not a "Matchmatic" and after a quick look at the manual it does appear they made a complicated beast more complicated, but it can't be too tough to deal with, they sold a lot of them. The biggest real problem I have with my C3 is that the viewfinder and rangefinder windows seem to have shrunk substantially since I was 17.

    [...can't focus in early light either]

    Yeah, it is a very dim viewfinder. I have the magnifier on mine-it would be really hard to focus with out it!

    I didn't get out with my Argus C3, but I am thinking about loading it up anyway and playing tourist.

    I managed to get a few shots with my C-3 and some Lucky 100 film. I even got a couple of them in focus(sort-of, mostly, kinda)and as soon as the prints are dry I'll post a couple. I figured out why they call it "Lucky", I was lucky to get it spooled onto the reel, and I was lucky to get it developed (directions in Chinese-TG for panthermic developer).

    That's my problem...I'm not 17 either! Nice pics. Enjoyed the history and the Knights Dam.

    ArgusDay Returns

    Well gang here is a picture that the shop was able to square to 5 x 5 inches. This is cropped however. I will post a second shot in the technial forum as there is an ugly spot on it. All prints have a huge amount of dust along the lower third. The camera appears clean...the white specs drive me nuts. Can't submit those in a contest! So anyway I got 7 prints out of 12 frames. The last was as I suspected blurry. I also think that with a 75mm lens that getting to close to large objects is not aesthetic. Another lesson learned?
