Twin Lens Reflex Camera Manuals

Recently I've received a message from a TLR usser loated in Malaysia. She just got herself a used TLR camera, a Shangahi TLR in fact. It's exactly the same model as I'm using for my night photography. On the other hand, I've received some messages in my Comments column for a article I wrote back in 2006, June 20 titled History of Seagull TLR Camera.

No doubt Seagull TLR camera is the cheapest and most affordable amongst famous brands like Yashica, Rolleiflex, Mamiya, to name a few. As most beginners who venture into medium format and got hold of one TLR camera, they do not what to do with it, not to mention those who have been shoting digitally in their beginning stage of photography.

So in kind response to help those new TLR users, I've decided to put up 2 original Seagull TLR camera manuals here in my blog. I hope the manuals can help them understand on the camera operation, as most of them bought their set second-hand and without the original manual. Here I posted the Shanghai TLR manual and one on Seagull-4A.

Do let me know if you have any further questions, and I'll try my very best to answer. Thank you for reading this blog and do come back for more upcoming blogs on my photographic work and experiences.
