The Daco is a Bakelite box camera made by Dacora in Germany. The original model dates from 1949, with an f/11 lens; the 1950 Daco II has an f/8 lens[1].

There are controls on the front giving a choice of apertures, f11, f16, f22 (Daci) or f8 & f11 (Daci II), and focus ranges of 1.5-4m and 4m-∞. The camera uses 120 film taking twelve 6x6cm images per roll.

The Daco was superceded by the similar, but metal-bodied Daci and Daci Royal.
