Click and have a look at the 2nd photo in 2nd line at this site:


To me it seems there is a swinging 45 mirror about where that white dot up front is, projecting the image via a 2nd oblique mirror and further optics to produce a small aerial- or groundglass-image that can viewed via that oblique binocular or goggle.

And as this is a stereo-camera I assume the main idea for an SLR-concept was to deliver both eyes different images.

Here is the patent to that camera:


By substituting an ordinary lens for the special [stereoscopic] lens of this camera one obtains a camera for conventional photography which offers all advantages due to the improvements which form the subject of this invention.
