Seagull Guitars GC-104 overview

  • 1Description

The Seagull GC-104 is an inexpensive introduction into the world of medium format photography. This non-metered classically-styled twin-lens reflex camera is patterned in the time-honored design of older Yashicamats. Its lightweight simple design consists of a waist-level finder with pop-up magnifier, manual film wind advance and separate shutter speed and aperture levers. The built-in (non-interchangeable) 75mm f/3.5 Seagull lens produces surprisingly pleasing results.

In addition to shooting in the 6 x 6cm format, the camera is supplied with a 6 x 4.5cm format mask which fits inside the camera and allows the photographer to obtain 16 exposures from 120 film. The mechanical lens shutter design provides flash synchronization at all speeds up to 1/300 second and there is also Bulb exposure. This camera also features a cold flash shoe and PC terminal for external electronic flash connection. For the budget-conscious 35mm photographer interested in trying a medium format camera, the Seagull GC-104 should be considered as an interesting alternative.
