Film compartment. Note the curved film plane, it helps against the vignetting of the simple plastic lens.

These are the ultimate basics of a camera, focus free, single shutter speed and about F8 fixed aperture. Point and shoot only. If you choose the right film, ISO 400 in general and ISO 200 on very sunny days, you can shoot outside photos that look o.k.. The rest will be "Lomo" style, but you can use flash for interior photos. As I always say: You should have used one of these once in your life!
