Hi guys, I just bought an Argus/Cosina model 708 but I don't have the owner manual and I really want it! If someone knows how I could get one, please tell me. An other question: I don't know how to fix a new F:/stop, it's onw of the reason I want the manual. Thanks to everyone!

Hello.

Here I've found your request.

Visit CraigCamera website at: http://www.craigcamera.com/ib_a.htm

There you'll find the list of manuals, including the one you're looking for:

#ARG-175a Instruction Manual
Argus/Cosina 708 S8 Movie Camera (Reprint) $15.00

Hope this will do.

Jonathan.

To set your f-stop, look for the dial on the left-hand side which says "auto/off/manual". Auto activates the light meter, off is off, manual allows you to set the f-stop. Turn the dial and you will see. You need the .625V button battery in the compartment just below for any of this to work.
