That was the state of a Sony Alpha A200 when the author of these photos got it. It was... Let's say someone trod it down several times. The rear view is the same - broken LCD leaked, protective plastic cover was missing. It was absolutely clear that there's no way to repair this poor camera. So a curious mind and a screwdriver were set on foot.
First impression of seeing the camera naked was a surprise of the level of miniaturization. Plenty of tiny ribbon cables connecting small cards, a flashlight and its capacitor, a beeper ad auto-focus switcher - all this was placed in a small black box which can be easily held in hands.
What's seen from behind? That big (only comparing with the others) card, the main one, carries probably the CPU (see that Toshiba chip?).
