yeah the seagull 203 is a great performer,
it is very similar to an Agfa Super Isolette, has coupled rangefinder.
Anything about this camera you can read here, there are many streetphotographers in Cuba and
China and asia still using this camera for professional shots...its a kind of chinese Iskra.
Sometimes you can find these rare birds in ebay, still quite unexpensively, if you can get a working one,
get it, a similar Agfa or Super Ikonta will cost you much more.
I use Ilford B/W and Fujicolor 160 Pro
Here you can compare the Seagull 203 to the Agfa Super Isolette,
both cameras perform great, the Seagull is much cheaper to come by because very few people know about their existence ;-)
I would say its agood idea to ask any seller of a vintage camera for
working rangefinder and shutter...there are many Seagulls around that became "tortured" by people without an easy hand for fine mechanics and vintage compur licenced shutters...
My camera was new old stock when I bought it so its perfectly adjusted and has never seen any kind of rough treatment...
