Argus / Cosina STL 1000 Holiday Images

This is the second classic Argus camera I have used this Holiday Season.
The body was built by Cosina for import by Argus into the USA market. It was a nicely appointed 35mm SLR for the time, with through the lens metering, and Universal 42mm thread mount.
The one I used for this series is black body, with hotshoe, and top mounted speed dial. This particular body is also extremely battered, well used by someone in the past. The repairs I made got it through this roll of film.
Film was Walgreens house brand ASA 200 print film.
Lens was a GAF f:1.9/50.
The shot with the red pillow and bears was with a shoe mounted Chinon auto mode flash unit.
All other images were available light.
I used extension tubes for focusing the closeups of the tree ornaments.
