The top plate houses the waist-level viewfinder, frame counter, shutter release and double-exposure release. The front of the viewfinder hood can be opened to form a direct vision, reverse telescope finder. The winding lever and rewinder are on the base.

The camera was replaced after about a year by the Agfa Optima Reflex, which is similar, but the waist-level finder is replaced with an eye-level pentaprism one, and there is a selenium meter for automatic exposure. These two cameras failed to compete with the burgeoning range of SLRs available at the time and the Optima-Reflex was withdrawn in 1966.

- While McKeowns may compare this camera to a Silette, it clearly more closely resembles an Agfaflex.
