Seagull DSC-1100 (1999)

The Seagull DSC-1100 was a digital camera made in China by the chinese/vietnamese joint venture companies Shanghai Seagull and Shanghai Fudan Microelectronics Co., Ltd. Although the 1997 Kodak DC210 looks similar, it has nothing to do with this camera because the Seagull DSC-1100 was manufactured two years later in 1999 and first unveiled at the Chinese photography trade fair in 2000. Interesting enough Kodak agreed to a joint venture with Shanghai Seagull in 2001 and agreed to provide knowledge and technology for digital camera assemblies. Farsharp Imaging Technology Corporation marketed this camera under it's own brand Kinon. The camera was then licensed to Vivitar. All three cameras did very poorly on the market and are therefore sought-after items, almost impossible to find nowadays. These are the only three models known to exist.
Some of the features of this camera included a 10 second self-timer, macro mode of 25cm, files could be saved in TIFF format, status display, two compression modes, manual settings, built-in flash, an LCD screen with 10 menu options, serial cable connector, 2x optical zoom, video out port and was powered up by 4 batteries. According to some chinese websites it was the first 1 megapixel camera made entirely in China.
