The Ilford Sportina Rapid was a range of small viewfinder cameras made in Germany by Dacora for Ilford, introduced to the UK in 1965. They used Rapid film, which ran between two cassettes, giving near instant-loading, with no rewinding. Ilford introduced several rapid films alongside this range.
There were at least four models, I, II, III & IV, with increasing levels of metering and automation. These we rebranded Dacoras, D 101, D 202, D 303 and D 404. The Dacoras were also rebranded by Hanimex and the D202 by Ferrania as the Lince Rapid.
