Cracking Open Fuji's FinePix Z1 Digital Camera

FinePix Z1 Strap Removed

Here's a look at the FinePix Z1 with the strap removed. In this image you can also clearly see the Tri Wing tamper-proof screws used to secure the outside casing. At the top of the camera's sideplate is an infrared port, an unsupported feature on this model. The FinePix's two topside controls are also visible. The first is the Mode Switch. If set to the right the camera is placed in Photography Mode. Moving the switch to the left prompts the camera to change to Movie (video) Mode operation.
