nikon-d3-cut-in-half-04

Tokyobling visited the Tokyo Eco Products convention at the end of December last year and came across a cross-section of a Nikon D3 SLR camera. Everything seems to be there including battery cells, lens glass, the sensor, and what looks to be the mirror.

There’s no mess and no sharp edges which makes me think that a samurai was invited to the Nikon factory to do this job (after all, they are in Japan…right?). I mean, they didn’t build it like this, did they?
