The Carena SX-300 is a SLR camera body with Minolta SR-bayonet mount. It can be used with most of the lenses which are made for Minolta's manual focus SLRs. On the back it is marked "Shanghai China". It's a licensed copy of Minolta's X-300 which was produced in the same Seagull camera factory. A similar camera, the Carena DF-300, is the same camera but instead of an all-black body, it is black and silver.
