Seagulls are China's oldest camera brand and are based in Shanghai. My model is from the 80s (I think) and is modeled after a Minolta SLR. Funny thing's I've discovered since taking my first roll.
1- There is a light meter. Very handy to know that and will explain why some of the following pictures are off.
2- Not only is there a light meter, but there is a setting for ISO speed...also very helpful and explains why the first set of pictures are way off. Thankfully I'm inquisitive or I might have been very discouraged, thinking that my light meter was way off...
Here are some of the firsts shots in B&W. More in color to come. All of the ones below are taken at Fulu Jie (from which you've seen pictures before) save the first which was on my way there.
