The camera module in all its glory.

Like most compact digital cameras with optical zoom that have no externally telescopic lenses, the S1000pj's internal zoom lenses move perpendicular to the front face.

The basic components include:

A few movable lenses.

CCD image sensor.

Optical zoom motor and feedback sensor to position the lenses.

Aperture and image stabilization modules.

Light has to travel through at least four glass lenses until it shines on the CCD sensor. What a journey.
