It's nearly here...

The eighth annual World Argus Day is nearly upon us. Fans of low-tech photography should really give this a try. Get your hands on an Argus C3 or one of their other models, and carry it with you on Friday, "Argust" 8th. Celebrate a classic American camera brand, and get re-acquainted with the mysteries of shooting film.

Argust Fever -- catch it!

Oh, holy crap, don't startle me like that. I'm still recovering from last year's Argust Day! And I still haven't fixed the C3. And now that I think about it, there may still be a partial roll sitting in the Super-75. Oh, well. I vow to take at least one picture with an Argus that day!

Recovering? I thought this was just a little photo celebration, not an epic Bacchanalian festival. It should attract more attention if it is.

I have a cheap, plastic, fixed-lens see-through Argus 520 point-n-click. Will it cause some kind of rend in the space-time continuum of Argus Day if I use that cheap thing on 8/8? I don't want to do anything to endanger us all.

Not at all, Duffy. We're passing around an Argus 75 among members of the flickr list, and that's a cheapo box camera with exactly two lens settings (shutter open, shutter closed.)It doesn't get much lower than that.
