K-x disassembled?

Has anyone ever had the guts to break down a K-x on to its bear electronics? What is inside, i am very curious. i am really into a grip for the k-x is it possible to wire a micro connector to the switch? And the mic do you think its able to fit one more connector in the body of the camera?

maybe it could be done, but make no mistake : all the room avaible is use; So you'll have to have it outside of the body.

If you want to try this, when taking the top of the camera off, there is a screw in the battery compartment that is hard to see, and there are screws under the pop up flash too.

I have a K10D approaching 'in pieces' levels... Its very very *very* cramped in there (and the K10 has bigger body than Kx no? Admitedly the K10D has more circuitry for the Li-Ion batteries etc.. but not that much more... ).. I also will be happy to never see a single flexible PCB again.. the things covered in them.. so you'll need a very fine tipped iron with reliable tempreature controls
Check out the pentax service manual on Downloads - it at least will give you an idea of the component groups.

that is true. and i was thinking of leading the wires out of the body threw the battery compartment. and lead it into a grip of a sort.
