nice photo series, ewolfy!
we'd like to feature your photos and remarks in a future article!
can you please explain how exactly you did the last few steps of the disassembly? i.e. how did you separate the lens system from the image/lightfield sensor?

Thank you..
You are welcome to feature my photos. Just share the link with me.
Here is what I had to do to take the two half's apart.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/a6q4ejjup80pg1b/wires.jpg
As you can see from this photo (link above) there are 3 obstacles from separating the camera half's.. There are two tiny ribbon cables and a little plastic tab. Both are easy to remove.
The ribbon cables just require a push from a tiny flat-head screw driver to get the ribbon to slide out from the connector. I had to push a little on the left side (of one) then a bit on the right side (of the same one), sort of inching it out a little at a time.. The I had to do the same with the other ribbon cable too.. Once these are off, the two half's of the camera bend back even further, but the trick was that bending them back (or pulling them apart by lifting up) still didn't separate them. The half's separate by sliding the apart.. Almost if you could imagine two bricks stacked on top of each other and you slide one horizontally off the other. Because the little black tab is under the protruding metal tab.

I don't believe that this plastic / metal tab does anything other than hold the two half's together better, there seems to be no electrical connection between the two half's except via the ribbon cable.

Interesting to note. The camera does not function separated. I thought at least the display would power up because the display and power are both in one side. Also, when I slid the metal housing off the lens assembly, it was tricky to remember which way to rotate this to put it back on the right way. Just make a note of that.

Now, this is as far as I've gone so far but I am going to eventually take everything apart, every screw, battery, display, etc.. I will document that as well.

:)

Can you please re-post the photos, the links are broken. Hopefully, you can find an image host that will keep the photos for a longer time. Thanks

I was trying to view the dropbox images from behind a corporate firewall which said "might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address" instead of saying that the firewall was blocking the website. Thanks for the reply.

to remove the computer without harming the zoom control, you must first remove the display from the front. Once the USB board is out, and the screws holding the frame in are removed push the assembly out far enough to see the seam on the display to frame. using something thin (I used my fingernails) slowly pry the display assembly from the frame, working around it. It releases fairly easily. Fold it down and you will see two flat cables from the display, you can remove them if you want, not necessary, an RF cable for the WiFi antenna, and a pop-up connector to the zoom control. pry that up, and guide it out as you push the assembly the rest of the way out. Now you can replace that battery!
