This Argus C44 (early one) was just given to me by my sister who is up visiting from North Carolina. It was given to her by my grandfather, a man I spent a lot of time with while I was growing but who unfortunately lost his ability to function mentally far before his body let him go. As a result, these sorts of gifts are few and far between. So sentiment and nostalgia are to be assumed here. The camera has similarly lost its ability to function - shutter, wind, and shutter release are frozen but the body is hale and hearty. Lens focuses (rangefinder out of alignment) lens removes, film sprockets disengage and move when wind lever is set to rewind, but no forward winding motion is possible, no shutter operation nor return spring to the shutter release. My sister wants me to get it fixed and take some photographs with it. I have been quoted a repair figure of about $85, but I am going to bet that is low. I know I can get a working one for less than that as well. You can see my dilemma unfolding. Should I get a similar vintage, equivalent condition replacement and shoot some photographs, thereby deceiving my sister and trodding upon the grave of my grandfather or should I fix it? I think I should fix it. Any good repair shops who do Argii to recommend?
