X-E1 dismantled / disassembled


At first, I want to introduce myself. My name is Jens, I am located at Schweinfurt, Northern Bavaria, Germany.

I own an X-E1 since three months now and I love this camera really much

I want to share here some shots of a defective X-E1 which I bought very cheaply @ the bay.

I was curious if the X-E1 is as solidly built as the X-Pro1, especially when it comes to bajonet mount and sensor fixation, as it can be seen in a video on Youtube where somebody disassembles a X-Pro.

What is to say? The X-E1 is as solidly built, only except for the back, which is made of polycarbonate. This is nothing new, but it is remarkable, that despite the high amount of metal and Mg-alloy being used, the weight could be kept that low.

Inside, right behind the polycarbonate-back, there is a piece of metal which goes through the whole case. One part of its functionis to keep the display in place. The display itself is sealed towards the backside-glass with a rubber-seal. Done so, no dust or dirt should be able to enter the space between the glass and display.

All in all a very nicely built camera, not only from the outside, also on the inside it is very high worthy and durable/precise.

The shutter- mechanism is made of plastic-parts in a glassfiber-reinforced housing. This is nothing bad, for plastics being nowadays sometimes more durable than metals. For instance parts of a gear made of plastics CAN last longer than the same gear made of metal.

Here are the photos (if it works as intended, it is my first time here
