This is an unbelievably adorable little camera. Almost the same as the regular Argus C3 ("The Brick,") this has pretty two tone leatherette in black and tan. The C3 was a very popular camera - sturdy, easy to use, not too expensive. These traits made it one of the best selling cameras of the time - it was often called "the poor man's Leica." The Matchmatic C3 was produced from '58 through '66. Features a coated Cintar 50mm, f/3.5 lens. takes 35mm film, which is the standard for modern film cameras, making it very easy to locate and process. That being said, camera does not have a built in light meter, so you would have to use a hand held meter. Or use the sunny 16 rule: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunny_16_rule

***Marked down from $60!***

This camera is in gorgeous condition. A bit of soil and an indentation to the leatherette in back - from where a closure on a carrying case pressed against it. Otherwise, leatherette and body are super pristine. Inside looks so clean I'd guess it 's been rarely used. Lens is clear and clean, shutter is crisp and all dials move appropriately. Viewer is also clean.

Over all, a pretty piece of camera history that is a great addition to a photographer's collection, as a working piece for a student or artist, or as a decorator camera.

Shipping is for flat rate priority, or international first class.
