The Argus C-3 Camera aka "The Brick"
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

The Argus Camera Company (formerly known as IRC for either International Research Company or even earlier, the International Radio Company) of Ann Arbor, Michigan produced the C-3 for 27 years from 1939 through 1966.The Argus C-3 was the first brick to feature its own flash unit. Early model C-3 cameras were synchronized for flash bulb exposure only, with no provision for electronic flash. Colormatic C-3s which feature color-coded shutter speed, rangefinder and aperture dials were the first C-3s that were synchronized for electronic flash.
The camera was the best-selling 35mm camera in the world for nearly three decades, and helped popularize the 35mm format.
Who else had a Brick? LOL
