Seagull, TLR, results.

I hadn't expected too much from the Seagull, especially as this example was a bit battered. But it surprised me, by returning twelve out of twelve results from a single roll of rather time expired film... a sign of a slight reluctance to trust it!

It's a bit weighty for what it is, and the viewfinder is a bit dull.... and the magnifier a bit nasty, but hey, it behaved itself when it counted.



As with most 120 format cameras, the 75mm lens gives a fairly short depth of field close in to the subject, allowing you to isolate the background in this agreeable way.
