Since I always massively enjoy the "exposé" of more or lesser known cameras here with some photos, I figured I'd try to contribute the little bit I can. Fact is that I hardly have cameras that apply, and the one camera I am about to show isn't mine either - it's my dad's; I've ran two rolls through, for fun. Now it will probably go back to its owner. I've got nowhere near the knowledge on the inner workings and company histories as the frequent posters do here, so I cannot tell too much background story on this camera. The info I dug up on the various internet sites that have shreds of info, then. The Ilford Sportsman series cameras are rebranded Dacor Dignette cameras, mainly sold in the UK and the Netherlands. Introduced in 1957, there are 4 "redesigns", this one being from the third series (1959) which introduced a choice of 3 shutters and a model with a real rangefinder. This specific one is the second most luxurious, with a Prontor SVS shutter with a wide(r) choice of shutterspeeds, a 45mm f/2.8 lens but not the rangefinder. So, it's a really simple straightforward camera, quite sturdy, small. I haven't been able to find out when this one was bought, but probably 1960-1961 somewhere. It's in its original leather jacket, and generally well taken care off. It didn't need any repairs (though the frame counter doesn't appear to work), and probably it could be better with a disassmebly to clean it properly, but I'm not (yet?) too skilled at that, so I shot it as-is.
