The Argus A2B

Inspired by the success of Leica, the International Radio started producing the first American made 35mm film cameras starting with the Argus A series.
This Argus A2B was produced from 1945-1950.

I put a roll of Fuji Superia 200 in it and took it for a short walk just before Christmas.


  1. Nice work with the A2B. You got some mighty vibrant reds.

  2. You coaxed some nice images from the Argus. I need to find the time to play with mine again. They often produce results than are better than you would expect.

  3. Thanks, Jim & Mike. I was surprised with colors of the images myself. I was expecting dull colors given the simple lens. Not sure if mine is coated. The only thing is that some of the images showed a little light leak (left of the snowman).
