Instacora R is a 126 film instamatic viewfinder camera made by Dacora and introduced in 1966.

It takes 28x28mm frames on 126 film. It has built-in hinged AG-1 flash reflector or flashcube socket. The lens is zone focusing Dacora Color-Dignar 40mm f/3.9 in programmed shutter with five weather symbols.[1]

There are four versions of the camera:

  • Version 1 early type for AG-1 "peanut" bulbs
  • Version 2 for flashcubes
  • Version 3 with flashcube and smooth metal finish
  • Version 4 with flashcube and waffle finish

With these cameras Dacora obtained a big sales success. The Instacora already has a modern housing and a metal (alluminium) shield on the front. On the back it even carries a leather trim.
