The Seagull Reflex DF was a SLR camera body for 35mm film. It was the first of Seagull's series of SLR bodies with Minolta SR mount. It was cloned under license from Minolta from that company's SR-3, but developed further to have a mirror lock-up feature as first found in the SR-7. This proves that Chinese engineers didn't just copy! The body shape of the Seagull also differs from that of the Minolta model.
The camera was succeeded by the Seagull DF-1 in 1969 and later by a face-lifted version Seagull Seagull DF-2. Serial numbers of most DF-SLR-bodies began with '102-...'. Thus one variant even got this number as name, the Seagull DF-102b.
