    I wouldn't refuse it if it were a gift, buy wouldn't spend a nickel on it if it were for sale.

    Obviously I did not consider the most obvious. Thank you Ian.

    The Minolta Autocord was a damn good camera. Keep looking. So was the Yashica (124) and Rollei (flex or cord). While too heavy for my needs, the Mamiya is another solid camera that can be found at very attractive prices.

    Fellas,
    Thank you very much for your informations!

    The camera is not a gift, and in the same time is quite expensive for its characteristics.


    To use the topic here: If someone can offer me a good TLR camera, or know a friend who sell, I would be glad to recive some info's, pictures and prices.

    It's a fraud. Rip-off. Blatant misrepresentation. Seagulls are cheap Chinese cameras and this one looks like it's been through some hard use.

    Fake camera. I am curious, what were they asking for it?

    [QUOTE=stevco;1021499]Hi,
    I have interested to start some medium format photography with a good not expensive TLR camera,
    ************
    I am wondering if, perhaps, a used Kiev 88 SLR might not be a better idea, given your location.

    If you search for "Seagull camera" on Google Images, there are lots of pictures and details of this (and other) Chinese cameras. The English lettering below the lens reads "Shanghai, China".

    Other than some older-type bulb flashguns under the National brand, I'm not aware that Matsushita had any photographic involvement until the more recent Panasonic/Lumix digital gear.

    I've used a Yashica 124G camera from new, and it's given good and reliable performance for general and landscape photography, although it doesn't have the versatility of a 120 SLR for closeup or more technical work.
