    OK this is either the deal of the century (or last 24 months!) or I know even less about vintage stuff than I thought? Just picked this one up. Correct me if I am wrong but 120 is medium format yes? Anyway this is supposed to be circa 1940-1948 and shoots 120. I really don't even care if it still works or not becaues it is such a relic even if it is a cheap or undesirable brand or model it will make one hell of a conversation piece, no? Either way the seller says everything does move, has not tested with film but dry fired. Paid winning bid, $15.50 :shock:

    If it works? :shock: 8) :lol: :wink: SWEEET!

    It's an Argoflex, a camera made between 1940 and 1951. Three basic models:

    E - with Varex Anastigmat lens 75/4.5

    EM - same but metal body

    EF - same model but with flash.

    I think you might have the EM model, made in 1948.

    Put some T-max in it, see what gives... :lol: Have fun.
