The Hogo Reflex was inspired by the Auto Graflex Junior. The main body has a boxy shape. There is a viewing hood on top, hinged at the rear. The front standard is hanging below two rack-and-pinion bars, driven by a focusing wheel on the side. The recessed lensboard is covered by a flap hinged at the top.
The camera has a focal plane shutter, reportedly giving T, B, 10–1000 speeds. Various controls are visible on the right-hand side. There is a small plate attached to the front of the viewing hood, displaying the name HOGO REFLEX and a table probably explaining the speed settings.
