iFixit Tears Apart The Nikon D5100, Warns Of “4 Billion Screws”

27 Apr

There are some electronics that are totally worth fixing yourself. Most modern electronics aren’t, though. But you still do it anyway for shits and giggles. Then there are DSLRs — or in this case, the new Nikon D5100 electronic gadgets. You’d have to be John Biggs-crazy to tear this thing apart.

Still, iFixit did just that for the good of the Internet and posted their traditional how-to guide. Before you grab your buddy’s camera to see what magic is inside, you might want to jump the last step and read notes: 2 out of 10 in the Repairability Score (the iPad 2 electronic gadgets scored a 4), there are wires that need to be desoldered, “4 billion screws”, and you need to discharge the flash capacitor. Yeah, that doesn’t sound like fun to me. It’s probably best to leave this one to the pros.
