I also am the proud owner of an Argus; and have had dismal luck getting a decent pic with it. I attribute that to my lack of skill. I treasure it less for its utility than its historical artifact-ness (to coin a word).

Argus cameras used to be made in Ann Arbor, Michigan, minutes from where I reside, in the semirural area near Detroit. The building that housed the factory is still standing, and has been variously a Salvation Army building and a warehouse.

I've been an Argus collector for some time, owning five that I use occasionally. There is a museum in the factory building: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argus_Mu…

This is beautiful! It seems like it could be a lovely advertisement for the camera.

I have an Argus C3 Matchmatic coming in the mail and I'm really excited.

Ummm, this is Cool. It has that vintage look, the same kind you see when you look at an ad from 1960's to mid 80's.

Wow, that's so awsome >w<
Does the 'old' look of the photo come from your camera?
Or did you do something with the picture in a programm?

I'm not sure what you mean by the "old" look. The photo did have some color balancing done in post editing. ;) But the photo itself was not taken with an old camera.
