Argus C-four

The C4 is a 35mm coupled-rangefinder camera built by Argus from 1951 to 1958 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Less handsome than the C-3 and more advanced than the Argus A, the C4 is a solidly built piece of equipment that feels like it will stand up to moderate use on a daily basis.

The viewfinder with superimposed rangefinder is particularly good and film loading is a snap. This particular camera shares its chassis with the Argus 21 Markfinder, though not all C4s do.
