Argus Cosina STL 1000 35mm SLR Film Camera with Auto Sears/Sekor 55mm F/1.8 Fast Prime Lens


Here we have a very nice Argus Cosina 35mm film SLR camera with Auto Sears/Sekor 55mm F/1.8 fast prime lens and new battery. The camera is fully functional and ready to produce another lifetime of fantastic photos.

The camera is cosmetically nice and mechanically perfect. The mirror box, pentaprism, film compartment, and battery compartment are clean and free of damage or corrosion. All lever, dials, and switches work as they should. The viewfinder does show some dust that, while having no impact on images or function, is a bit distracting. As such, the camera is being sold at a discount.

The included lens is a made in Japan Auto Sears/Sekor 55mm F/1.8, which is a fast prime lens of the standard focal length. This makes it an excellent choice for general snapshots, all-purpose shooting, street photography, portraits, and more. The fast aperture of F/1.8 makes it ideal for low-light and available light shooting found in many photography scenarios, including street photography.

The Argus Cosina STL 1000 is a well-made and reliable 35mm film SLR camera made in Japan. It is a fully manual camera with exposure meter assistance and a match-needle exposure display in the viewfinder. This makes it an excellent choice for those who want control over their photos and who want to see how changes to settings will influence exposure.

It uses the M42 universal screw mount lens mount, meaning that any and all M42 lenses can natively mount to this camera, including excellent lenses made by Pentax and Mamiya, among others. Additionally the included lens can be used on any M42 camera, as well as on new mirrorless digital cameras via inexpensive adapters.

A very nice value camera and lens combination, this is the kind of machine that will serve anyone very well without costing very much.

It will be carefully packaged and shipped immediately.
