The idea of image formation using a new kind of metamaterials based on hierarchically organized mirror channels with semitransparent walls, metamirror structures (MMS) is analyzed. In case the MMS's have relatively small cell sizes from one to tens microns they are mechanically solid materials having abnormal optical properties in wide wavelength region beginning with visual and even near infrared wavelengths up to hard UV and soft X-ray diapason. The ray transmission and reflection is considered for various MMS geometries and types. It is shown that one-step reflection 2D MMS's based on rectangular elementary cells being properly curved possess lens properties and MMS lens generalized law is derived. Properties of a mirror lens prototype with finite meta-focus position made from one layer 2D and 3D MMS with reflecting walls are evaluated theoretically. Micro-machine mirror systems and modified macroporous structures are discussed as mirror lens devices.
