Jump to: navigation, search

The Revue DF-300 is a SLR camera body with Minolta SR-bayonet mount. It is a licensed copy of the Minolta X-300, and was sold only in Germany through the Foto-Quelle chain of photography stores. 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, licensed by Minolta". It's a licensed copy of Minolta's X-300 which was produced in the same Shanghai General Camera Factory. Name variants branded Safari, Centon, and Carena were also sold, and the Vivitar V50 seems to be the same camera, as well as Soligor's SR-300 MD.
