Argus A2B

1939-1950

The A2B is a very interesting camera. to the right of the viewfinder, there is a long hole you look through. The long hole is divided up into 6 different holes, which have a progressively darker or thicker piece of paper in them. The light shines through these holes, and you move a pointer to the dimmest hole. After performing a few other operations, you can read off what f/ and shutter speed to use. This is called an exposure meter. The rest of the camera is pretty similar to the A.
