    The Seagull cameras seem to be better known here as the Shen Hao. Do a search under that name here and you'll get a ton of info. The general opinion is positive.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Yes, that Mr. Hicks still calls the Shen-Hao cameras "Seagull" is a little strange, assuming of course the cameras of which he wrote in that Shutterbug issue are only from Shen-Hao; the UK distributor may well be purchasing cameras from other manufacturers, but as far as I know only Shen-Hao markets direct from their factory.

    Perhaps in the UK the importer is using the "Seagull" trade name for marketing purposes.

    The Shen-Hao company uses their own brand-name on their website; I've visited their website several times and have considered purchasing direct.

    Also, there are several resellers in China that sell view cameras with custom labels (or no labels) and these can be found on eBay at times (often with over-inflated prices). They too look like they were manufactured by Shen-Hao.

    If you are looking for wood, look at WISTA too, well made camera's.

    An other interesting site could be www.bigcameraworkshops.com .

    "Seagull" has a long history and famous camera band name know by everyone in China. It is high quality and make in Shanghai ( same city as Shen Hao )so they also use this band name.
