I shot this back in 2003 with one of the most interesting cameras in my
little collection, a Seagull DF-1. A lot of people are familiar with the
Seagull TLRs, because they began to be imported into the USA around 2000,
but this is not one of the well-known TLRs. The DF-1 is a 35mm SLR, based on
an old Minolta, the meterless SR-2. The Seagull also lacks a meter, and is
primitive in its construction. It feels like it will fall apart when you use
it, but it has worked perfectly the 10 years that I have owned it. The 50mm
f2 lens that came with it is an excellent lens. The exterior cosmetics look
like a clone of a Pentax M-Series K-mount lens, but I do not know what the
optics are based on. The mount is Minolta, not Pentax, despite the
appearance of the lens!
