The ifixit website has photos showing 30 detailed steps on taking the camera apart. I don't think I have the guts to go after my new D600 with a screwdriver, but the photos are really interesting, including a 350x magnification of the image sensor.
Neat! I also would not go that far to fix my D600. I like the SEM shot of the image sensor as well. It's easier on my heart (however, not my wallet) to send it in to Nikon for fixing if it ever breaks after warranty.
I'm wondering if they were ever able to put the camera back together and take a picture. I don't know how you could put all those parts back into the body and still get it to fit together. It appears that there's not any extra soace in that body.
I wonder if they've take a D4 apart. I'd like to see those pics.
I woke up this morning feeling something was missing from my life. Then it hit me and all made sense. After spending UK £1450 on a D600 I realised that until I took it to pieces my life (and photography) would be incomplete. I've now seen the light...........
Thanks for the link. I note they rate the D600 as 2 out of 10 for ease of service. I was especially struck by their finding that the rear LCD is not only fused to the glass screen but even the glass screen is part of a larger component which makes a cracked screen repair very expensive. See step 14. Their recommendation: screen protector.
