Detail showing lens cap off. You may not be able to see the pinhole inside the small opening. It's about .1mm.

The top lifts off the camera. Inside you can see the light-sensitive paper negative. I like to cut the paper long and curve it in the camera. This causes interesting distortions and the image circle becomes visible on the left and right of the photo.
