The Ilford Advocate is a white-enamelled die-cast aluminium alloy 35mm camera made in the UK by Kennedy Instruments, a subsidiary of Ilford. It was introduced in 1949 (series 1), and updated in 1952 (series 2) with a faster lens and flash sync; production stopped in 1957. It was said to be the first British 35mm camera to go on sale. The flash connector was a pair of sockets fitted to the side of the lens mount - of Ilford's own design, and the camera was supplied with an accessory cable to connect to these - rather than use a (by this time standard) PC connector.

  • Shutter: Rotary (with Flash sync on series 2), speeds 1/25-1/200 + B
  • Lens: Dallmeyer Anastigmat 35mm f4.5 (series 1) or Wray Lustrar 35mm f3.5 (series 2), stopping to f.22, focusing 3ft - infinity
