    Hello, I just joined hoping to find some Argus enthusiasts here. I want to know what Argus cameras take the 30mm series V filters? I know the Argoflex does which is MF but I think at least one of the 35mm Arguss takes it too. Can anyone confirm?

    Thanks

    The Argus C3 Standard and Matchmatic both take series V filters. The earlier C3s do not.

    For what it's worth, the Kodak No. 18 series V adapter will fit the older Argus C3 Cintar f/3.5 50mm lens. The f/2.8 50mm Cintagon lens for the C-44 takes series V filters.

    + 1 for Kodak series V adapter, better still if you can find it, is the Argus C lens hood assembly, takes one series V filter along with the filter. Somewhat clunky looking, it fits over the lens with a finger turnable screw to fasten it to the lens. The shade looks rather narrow for a 50mm, but works fine.
