and electric-SR

From time to time the German Dacora Kamerawerk surprised the market with another unique camera specialty. In the case of the DACORA electric super dignette it was the two flash types feature that made the difference. The camera had a hot shoe for an electronic flash, and, unusual for a 35mm camera, a connector for flashcubes. The super dignette electric-SR and the Super Dignette "electric" 500 S-R were versions with coupled rangefinder.
