Have you ever seen a camera being disassembled? Here's your chance to watch one being taken to pieces without ruining your own camera, as the folks at Kolari Vision have shared a video of a technician stripping a brand-new body down to its core.

Kolari Vision specializes in modifying cameras, specifically image sensors. The video (embedded below) shows a steady-fingered engineer delicately opening one of Fujifilm's latest cameras, the Fujifilm X-S20, and removing components piece by piece. In this somewhat agonizing watch, we get a unique opportunity to look at the inner workings of one of the best Fujifilm cameras of the year.
