  • 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.
