Inside the Guts of a DSLR

By Jason Fitzpatrick on November 9th, 2012

It’s safe to assume that there is a lot more going on inside your modern DSLR than your grandfather’s Kodak Brownie, but just how much hardware is packed into the small casing of your average DSLR is quite surprising.

Over at iFixit they’ve done a tear down of Nikon’s newest prosumer camera, the Nikon D600. The guts of the DSLR are absolutely bursting with hardware and flat-ribbon cable as seen in the photo above. For a closer look at the individual parts and to see it further torn down, hit up the link below.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
