    Nice! I love that later C3 with the color on the wheels.

    Now ya need a matchmatic. :D

    I will post some pics of mine with it's 100MM lens some time. :)

    Edit: You can actually put that shutter cock on the buffing wheel and make it look nice, even makes the camera look spiffier. :)

    Cool.. thanks for the advice. I'll have to do that.

    I did take a polishing cloth to spiffy up the dials, gearing, and lens body. The years left a bit of oxidation and grime.

    Woohoo. got another on the way. Argus C-4 from Ebay... supposedly in working condition winning bid... $0.99 + 12 for shipping. heheh

    :lol::lol: Good luck w/that one... It should get up around $350-500 by the end of the bidding. Get it for any less and you're my hero!:thumbup:

    Added hotshoe and speed system on the matchmatic. They originally came with light meters that hooked onto the shoe, but mine didn't have a lightmeter with mine. :(

    Cool on the C-4, I love mine, and have both the early model and newer model.

    Here is a pic of my newer one with the original flash unit.

    Thanks for the info.. I added it to the sticky thread for future reference.

    My argus C4 arrived a couple days ago. Seems to work and in ok shape. Not bad for a 0.99+shipping ebay find. I'll clean it up and post a picture of it in a few days.
