The Alfa has an unconventional vertical format, with the portrait-format viewfinder in a curved, cream-coloured surround at the top, the lens barrel below that, and the film running vertically from bottom to top. There are cream plastic controls around the lens, a wind-on knob on the user's left, and an accessory shoe below that. The shutter release is a large button on the front, below the lens on the user's right. The frame counter is also on the front, below the lens opposite the release. The camera has a leaf shutter with speeds 1/30 - 1/125 + B (the top speed seems to be different on some examples), synchronised for flash with a PC socket, and a WZFO Euktar 45mm f/4.5 lens.
The Alfa seems to have been available in red, pink, dark blue, light blue, light green, cream, grey or brown, each with a striped chrome front panel.
The Alfa 2 is a slight upgrade, with parallax correction marks in the viewfinder (obvious from the front, as small points on the cream surround), a redesigned shutter release with a separate cable release socket, and an Emitar lens.
