Argus “Brick” Match-matic Rangefinder Camera

Argus “Brick” Match-matic
PRODUCT ID: SF.110907

OVERVIEW

The MatchMatic is basically a C3 with different colored leatherette covering and different, propriety markings on the exposure settings.

The Argus C2 and C3 are often referred to as the “Brick”, a sobriquet earned largely due to it’s appearance and weight. Largely conventional in operation it can catch out modern camera users as the shutter needs to be cocked prior to release with what looks like a delayed release winder. The C3 shares the same sprocket system as the earlier Argus A and like the A series enjoyed a long production run, remaining largely unchanged from 1939 to 1966. This heritage extends to the lack of double exposure prevention. These are fairly late examples with accessory shoe and coated lens.
