This V.P. size model is similar to the larger and more common 6.5 x 9 cm model. Early examples had the view-finder in the centre later it was placed off-centre with the front lens of the finder on the front standard of the camera.

The method of holding the plates is interesting, the plates themselves fit into conventional metal slides, these drop into an adapter at the back of the camera. The adapter also includes a focusing hood but no screen, a separate screen would have been fitted similar to a plate holder. The adapter is removable from the camera so that, presumably, a film-pack or changing box could have been fitted.
