This an Argus Seventy-Five (originally called the Argoflex Seventy-Five) which is an inexpensive plastic bodied box camera made by Argus out of Ann Arbor, MI. Although it resembles a Twin Lens Reflex, it is still a box camera in that the camera has a fixed focus, and there isn’t actually a viewing lens like on a TLR. The top “lens” is just a clear piece of glass (or plastic) that reflects light off a mirror into a viewfinder on top of the camera. The camera has a single element lens, fixed focus, fixed aperture, and only one shutter speed. Despite these limitations, the camera is actually capable of taking decent shots on medium format film, certainly better quality than cheap “toy” Instamatic cameras that would become popular in the 1960s and 1970s.

Film Type: 620 (120 spools fit on the supply side only)
Lens: 75mm f/11 (estimated) Single Element Meniscus
Focus: Fixed Focus (7 ft to Infinity)
Type: Pseudo-TLR Box Camera
Shutter: Single Speed Metal Blade (Time and Inst only)
Speeds: Approximately 1/50th sec (Some say as slow as 1/30 and as fast as 1/60)
Exposure Meter: None
Battery: None
