The design of this camera is in complete break-up with the concept of T trained by the body of an camera and its lens. Here, all is conceived around a zoom 35-105 mm. To hold the camera, the user positions his hands of each side of the tube 7.5 cm in diameter.

The hiding cap of the lens is interdependent of this one, by a vertical hinge, located on the right of the camera. By opening this cap, the camera is energized. The inner face of the hiding cap is an enormous Fresnel lens, behind whom a flash with the number-guide of 25 is (in 105 mm). The Fresnel lens goes forward or backward according to the focal distance used.

The focusing entirely automatic, is provided by an autofocus system with 188 steps, of 80 centimetres to 12.5 meters. In the event of insufficient signal of the autofocus system, the focusing is automatically regulated on 24 meters, and with 96 meters in the event of absence of beam. A button makes it possible to commutate the focusing on the infinity for the landscapes. A green diode ignites in the viewfinder as the focusing is made.

The viewfinder integrates a dioptric correction for the holders of glasses.

The measure of the light is done by a cell located at the end of the camera. The starting of the flash is automatic for the subjects with strong contrast, like the back-lights or if speed must go down below 1/100 from second. The flash can however be stopped. It has a function anti- red eyes. An orange diode ignites in the viewfinder to announce that the flash is operational. It flickers if it is necessary to use a foot. It flickers more quickly if the anti- red eyes mode is active.

The loading of the apparatus is made Leica way, by the sole and not by the back. The adjustment of the sensitivity of film is automatic thanks to coding DX.

Epoca in Europe, Photura in the United States, Autoboy Jet in Japan, it had a successor in 1992. This one had a zoom 38-135 mm. It took the name of Epoca 135, Photura 135, Caption Jet 135.
