Mid-Century Argoflex Seventy-Five Camera with Original Leather Case

Mid-Century Argoflex Seventy-Five Camera with Original Leather Case

16.00

The Argoflex camera line was put into production beginning in 1949, produced images that were 6x6cm on 620 film, and had a TLR viewfinder. Though simple overall, the camera was made to have a feature that prevented double-exposure and another that notified the user when the film had been wound. The lens is a 75mm Lumar lens, in front of an f/11 aperture. The design was remodeled in 1964, though this camera is true to the original 1949 design.

The camera’s main body is made from a durable plastic, while the film door, front panel, and viewfinder are all metal. The text and graphics on the camera are that of the line produced between 1949 and 1958. The accompanying case is leather with cobalt blue plush interior lining for protection. The camera and the case are in great condition.
