    Digital Camera Tear-Down, Ricoh CX-1 (4K)

    What's inside a digital camera? This is a detailed tear down of one with a built in zoom lens, auto-stabilization, and auto-focus.

    This camera is full of micro motors (including tiny stepping motors), micro-sensors, high precision mechanics, etc.

    I put the sensor under a microscope, and it turns out it was bad because the adhesive used migrated out onto the sensor. I have an older CX-1 that is still good. Looks like a manufacturing change that misfired.

    WARNING: Do NOT take a camera with a flash unit apart! Flash units operate on high voltage that can shock and kill!
