  • Bend the camera's screen forward to uncover two 3 mm screws below the eyepiece.

  • Locate them and unscrew them.

There's also a screw under the dial just to the right of the viewfinder. You have to pull off a sticker in the middle of it to access. I also removed the top part of the camera in order to easier remove the back. It may not be necessary to do this.

  • Use a plastic opening tool around the body of the camera to wedge the back cover off. Start from the bottom next to the battery compartment.

  • If necessary, lightly use your hand to pull the the back cover down to completely remove it.

Is not necessary remove the back cover to remove the top cover.
