"Argus" to PC-sync cord

Discussion in 'Lighting Equipment' started by young, Jan 1, 2009.

  1. So I have this flash, seen in many google photos listed with an Argus A4 or C-type camera.
    The flash is a bulb type, black, takes 2 C batteries, and says Argus on one side. It has two prongs on one side which can trip the bulb when closed... "shorted"...
    I can make my own, which would work fine, but I would rather have some sort of adapter cord ready made. I need a female (Argus) to male (PC) type cord.
    Does anyone know of anything like this avaliable for sale?
     
  2. This is exactly what I needed, however the prongs on Argus flash unit are round.
    Wounder if they will fit... buying time.
     
  3. @Tom, that's a HH to PC (household to pronto-compur) adapter. The OP needs single round pins to male PC. I don't see one on the Paramount catalog, but, they'll make anything.
    @ OP. You might inquire at the Argus Collectors Group (http://arguscg.tripod.com/) they seem to know everything about Argii.

  4. My first 35mm was an Argus and my Grandfather who help me get started in photography left me his Argus Camera. I thin I have the adapter on it for a regular flash to Argus but would have to see..

  7. Argus changed their flash interface somewhat during the long history of the manufacture of the C3. I think that the C3c was the first with zero sync for flash.
     
  8. Thanks Mr. Webster, ill check that now.
