Yes, after someone made some slightly derogatory comments about a C-3, I pointed out there was much to be said for a camera you could repair with needle-nosed pliers and a screwdriver. I calibrated my rangefinder as the final touch-up for this year's Argus Day and shot some 200 C41 film. Sure, it's not a Leica, but I was actually impressed with the general quality of what I got out of it. It's fiddly to operate, and those view and range finder ports are mighty tiny to these weary old eyes, but for basic daylight shooting it's not bad at all.
