Chronology of cameras Centon 

This camera is derived from the Minolta X300, X370s, and X-7A. Apart from the outer casing, it is similar to the Carena Sx300 and likely comes from the same Chinese factory in Shanghai. Even its user manual corresponds to the respective Minolta model. The lens mount is of the Minolta MD type.

It was also marketed under the names Vivitar V50 and Seagull DF-300x. The name Centon corresponds to a brand name of the British distributor Jessop. Some retail outlets in France, such as Studio 67 in Rouen, sold Jessop products in 2000.

At less than 1200 francs (for the Seagull DF-300x), it may have seemed like a great deal, but the lenses and accessories in the Minolta-MD range were expensive. It was a good idea to have it as a second camera body.
