Argus Tele/Wide C685


While second-hand store shopping for cheap cameras to use at my wedding, I found this unassuming camera – the Argus Tele/Wide C685. The unusual thing about this simple point and shoot was that it had a button that extended the wide lens to a telephoto lens, so you had both shooting options. It takes an AA battery and has an automatic flash option which was an attractive option for night shots. I decided to do a test run with this particular camera before the wedding. I used boring old Klick Max 200 film. I didn’t even redscale it beforehand. So the photos are a little plain. Oh well. Worth a try.
