The Qingdao General Camera Factory was located on Yan An San Lu in the Chinese port city of the same name.

The plant manufactured at least two cameras:

  • the 1975 to 1984 Qingdao SF-2 - a post-1960s Rolleiflex inspired TLR, which took 12 exposures of 6x6cm on 120 roll film, or 16 6x4.5cm exposures by use of a metal mask [1], and
  • the post 1983 Qingdao 6 - a copy of the discontinued Agfa Optima Flash Sensor.

The front gate of the factory had a huge replica of the Qingdo 6. This factory has long ceased and was demolished to make way for housing.
