Muy bueno pero falta documentar 3 tornillos.

1. En el paso 1, en la tercera foto debajo del sticker del código de barras.

2. En el paso 2, justo en el fondo del compartimento de una de las baterías (la del extremo). Incluso se alcanza a apreciar en la foto.

3. En el paso 8, en esa misma pieza de metal a un lado está el otro tornillo.

My shutter button still works but doesn’t give feedback. It’s hard to tell when I’ve taken a picture because it doesn’t “click.” I’m wondering if that’s something that can be fixed, but I can’t tell if the mechanism for that feedback is in the mechanical portion above (and maybe a piece of metal broke) or built into the switch soldered on the circuit board.
