Those are excellent pictures. It's interesting trying to figure out which parts are worth the thousands of dollars...

I guess I won't have to open up my FX1 or Z1 to look inside when I get one now. Great photos!

i once was at this guys place. It was an adventure I can tell. While waiting for repair on the spot of my vx1000 ( it was a few years ago) one can watch live cameleons and other exotic animals climbing over the furniture and the camera spares.
The place is like a greenhouse/cameramuseum.
Everywhere suddenly strange animals pop up out of a corner.
Very entertaining.
The guy sure knows the inside of cams but you can see that on
his site. When leaving with my repaired camera I could get myself some free fresh flowers on the other side of the street. Very nice!
