When trade shows like Photokina come around, manufacturers love to disassemble their gadgets, giving curious camera geeks like ourselves a chance to look past the metal and plastic skin to the intricate electronic wonders within. Here's a gallery of cameras and lenses that have been disassembled and destroyed for the sake of our gawking.
There aren't many of Sony's full-frame RX1 mega-compacts on the floor here at the show, but they do have one exploded and under glass. You can see the burly magnesium alloy used to build the body, but more importantly, you can see that massive, purple, full-frame sensor. This is definitely one of the hottest cameras at the show.
