The Soligor SR-300 MD is a compact SLR camera body with a Minolta MD SR-bayonet mount. It can be used with most of the lenses which are made for Minolta's manual focus SLRs. It's a copy of Minolta's X-300 which was produced in the same Shanghai General Camera Factory. Other name variants branded Safari, Seagull, Centon and Carena were also sold; and the Vivitar V50 seems to be the same camera, as well as the Zenit DF-300.
