The Honor SL is quite different in design to the earlier Honor S1 models. It is similar in appearance to the Tanack V3.

The SL has a removable back/baseplate, to facilitate film loading. Film advance is by lever, and rewind by a folding crank (rewind is selected by rotating the collar around the shutter release button).

A combined viewfinder/rangefinder window is fitted and the camera is synchronized for both M and X at 1/30. The flash contact is located on the end of the body, above the strap lug.
