We start with the vintage camera we procure through various camera and antiques dealers nationwide. It has been sitting in an attic or basement for 50+ years and is non-functioning. We lovingly visually restore it with the following:
- Removal of nicotine, mold, mildew with various solvents
- Dissemble and clean the lenses and optics
- Metal polishing using various cleaners and polishing agents
- Leather cleaning, repair and conditioning
- Please note: Each light is a little different and will not match the pictures exactly. The camera while clean and complete will have 50 to 80 years of wear and patina that gives it awesome character! Think of all the memories the thing captured. Contact us with questions.
In 1943, with the Allied invasion of Europe imminent, a newly drafted 21-year old Tony Vaccaro headed to WWII. Tony went out and purchased a $47.00 Argus C3, and carried the camera into the war with him.
This is the camera that popularized the 35mm film format. Released in October 1939 with easy to use range focusing gears it became one of the most popular cameras of all time. Quick to focus and rugged, made of Bakelite and metal. The new 35mm concealed film stayed stable until it could be developed.
The C3 has frequently appeared in movies, including The Philadelphia Story (1940), Max Showalter’s Niagara (1953), used by Gwyneth Paltrow in Sky Captain the World of Tomorrow (2004), and Harry Potter.
