    @hafenperle Yes, but the shutter is frozen and the advance knob does not work, either. The pictures it made were good. I never had a chance to use it. My dad had loaned it to his brother-in-law and 15 years later it came back with a roll of film within. Maybe one day it will back to normal. It had a rangefinder type of focus. My dad also has some old Polaroids; not sure if they work or if even film is available.

    @fotomacher It is!!! You have to try your dad´s old Polaroids out, really. You can still buy a few Polaroid films, or try it with "Impossible Project" films. What kind of Polaroids do you have? Try them out! Please! :) I just bought an old one on ebay. I´m a bit disappointed, because I made 5 shots everything was when, but when I tried to take the 6th, something went wrong. No I try to find out what the problem is, because I would love to use it! I bought the SX-70. It´s awesome!!!!! And sorry for the Argus C3. I think it´s too expensive to repair it, right? Maybe you´ll find another one on a garage sale or ebay? Just to shoot with the same camera like your dad does! So nostalgic :) Have a great weekend! Lomo Love!

    @hafenperle I'll have to go see what type of Polaroids they were. One was in a rust colored leather case. This one had some old style electric flashes, and the other more recent one(late 1960's) had one of those pop out one time use flash bulbs. A great camera I bought from a friend was one I now miss. It was a German Aka Relle 35mm. I left it hidden at a model shot in the bushes, and disappeared with some other equipment, but not everything I left hidden.

    @hafenperle My dad's Argus wasn't broken at all. I found out you have to cock the shutter first before taking a picture. It takes pictures just fine.
