Argus Argoflex EM

Jump to: navigation, search

The Argoflex EM is a geared-lens TLR produced briefly by Argus in 1948. It was based on the metal body castings of the ill-fated Argoflex II, but modified to remove the poorly-designed automatic film advance. Early examples can be identified by the chrome trim wrapping from the sides of the body downward under the two lenses, bordering the leatherette. Later bodies were all black. It was quickly updated into the longer-running Argoflex EF, which was mainly differentiated by a hot shoe for flash.
