The Kneissel AF BF69 is a very basic compact camera, probably not an ultra compact one. I got it for next to nothing on a flea market, so I tested it nevertheless. There is nearly no information about this camera. It's from the 1990s and has no features. 

~35mm lens, min. focus ?m
Size 115x73x42,  Weight 177 gr.
auto DX, only 2 cantacts, 100 or 400 ISO, auto wind, but no rewind, autofocus (?) and AE

Front closed and case.

Back view. Flash charged lamp. Viewer. Film type window.

Seen from above. Just a shutter button and a mechanical film counter.

Seen from below. Rewind button, the camera doesn't rewind automatically. Battery compartment (takes 2 AA batteries). No tripod socket.

Camera open. Big Finder.

Film compartment open.

Camera dismounted. There was a battery contact problem, so I took it apart (just 5 screws, 3 on the outside, 2 in the film compartment). There are some electronics indeed.

This camera is incredibly basic. You slide it open and push the shutter, that's all. There are no features. All the rest is all automatic. The lens doesn't move and you don't hear the focussing. But it gets everything right. Point and shoot as basic as possible.
