During a recent photoshoot with the talented Monique Dinky, I stumbled across the Argus Seventy Five at Deep Ellum’s local thrift store, B4.  I decided to purchase it as a prop for the shoot, not knowing if it was in working condition or not.

Since a few of my photography buddies (Trevor Masid and Lauren Herbst) had been telling me to pick back up on film, I decided to use the Argus Seventy Five.  After doing research on the camera, I realized that it only took a 620 film which is no longer in production.  I am rarely deterred from anything that I have set my mind on. #VirgoProblems.  Upon more research, I found that the 620 film is a smaller version of the 120 film.  Luckily, the 120 film spools are made with plastic and a pair of scissors or nail clippers can easily trim these to size.

I was beyond stoked to have a Vintage camera to play with and decided to load a spool and head to Downtown Dallas to take some photos.  After the roll finished, I wanted to see the end results and took it to a local CVS – 24Hour Film Processing.  They regretted to inform me that they do not process 120 film.  It’s quite misleading to call yourself a 24Hour Film Processing store.
Nonetheless, my trust iPhone Safari came in handy as I searched for “120 film processing,” and ran across BWC which develops 120 films.  However, to my disappointment, when the film was developed, I was handed all black negatives.  Had I never shot with film before I would have given up and quit on the Argus Seventy Five here.  But the Virgo inside of me wouldn’t let me back down and I was convinced that there had to be an issue with the shutter not opening despite hearing the camera mechanics firing.  I began disassembling the camera to figure out what to repair.
After a few attempts, I finally found the culprit.  A single golden pin that was suppose to hold the front and rear curtain together was loose and shifted every time a picture was taken.  My solution? Some toilet paper placed on the golden pin to keep it in place.

Sure enough it worked like a champ!
