The Argoflex forty is just a plain old TLR to me...It's very nicely built, and the taking lens is the only lens that focuses, compared to the earlier Argus TLR's, that had both the viewing and taking lenses focus. It's also got real shutter speeds, and real aperture settings, campared to the later modely which had 'instant', and 'time' settings for shutter speed, and had no aperture settings that i am aware of. It looks like a nice camera, though :) .
