Looks like an striking city. I like the streetlamps and church(?) shot very much. You did well with that old Argus.
That's the city's train and bus station. It was built to resemble the former station which burned in 1990 and the Alvarado Hotel which was demolished by the RR company about 30 years earlier.
These are gorgeous; rather sharp. Can you explain how to collimate the lens on this camera? Mine is ever so slightly off at infinity. Any advice or pointers elsewhere are appreciated.
It has been quite a while since I played with the Argus AF. I pulled it out and looked it over, but don't see any provision for adjustment of focus. It seems like the focus was set at the factory. I also looked through the various manuals and don't see any mention of a possibility of altering the focus of the lens. The available on line information is listed in my first post on the camera at https://connealy.blogspot.com/search/label/Argus%20AFThe whole lens unit unscrews from the shutter housing in one piece. If it is properly screwed back in it seems like it should be ok.Sorry I don't have a better answer for your question.
Thank you for referring me back to the other post. Kuzyk's 35mm for the Proletariat is fascinating!
Kuzyk's book is a great resource on the Argus A cameras. Pretty amazing that he would choose a camera like that for a tour of duty in Iraq.My memories of using the two cameras I have are pretty hazy. I did a little cleaning up on mine, but nothing very significant. I'm wondering now if there might be something that could be interfering with the full extension of the lens tube on yours. It is worth sorting out as the camera is capable of a lot better performance than many people have given it credit for.
