Remove the camera panel by hand (black cover above the battery slot). Be careful; there is a cable attached underneath the case. It does detach, just pull on it carefully. During reassembly, put the cable back in by holding the black piece slightly above its slot and using the spudger to gently press the end of the cable back into its fitting. Then, insert the black piece so it is flush with the black panel again.
