Technically speaking, we are not far from a junk camera: The film winding through a small wheel at the back of the camera. two succinct lenses (I think two menisci) and the non-collimated viewfinder are really simple.

Nothing like a cell or an aperture setting. There is no focusing adjustment, but with a 28 mm hyperfocal allows to shoot without any problem.
The appearance of the device is very special with its large window on front, which protects two mirrors. The image captured by the latter is transferred to two smaller mirrors then to the film through two small lenses (~ 5mm diameter). The film guide is also unique in that it positions the film on a V to better receive the light beams from the two lenses that intersect in the darkroom.
An appendix forming a nose is fixed by means of suckers between the two lenses, on the glass to reduce glare.
