Dacora 1, 120 roll film camera c1952

German 120, 12 exposures on 6 x 6cm format, strut braced, self erecting camera. The better quality version of our other Dacora, identical body, fitted with higher quality shutter and lens. In common with the other Dacora the film rollers tend to stick mutilating the film emulsion in the process. This example was donated in 1998 but the slow speeds and delayed release on the Prontor were very sticky, this was sorted out with a gentle wash of IPA to that part of the shutter mechanism. Most of the Prontors & Varios I've come across develop this problem, but it is rarely terminal. The same basic shell was used for the Dacora Subita.

Donated to the collection by Mr M. Collins, in 1998.
