We all wanna see what's inside... human nature (for most) - Nice tear down, thank you for sharing. It's amazing how integrated/small these cameras are getting, I couldn't imagine flying a VHS compact action camera on a multicopter. 
You forgot to include a hi-res pic of the Ambarella side of the main board :(

Thank you for this tear down. Now I can see that it is possible to back-cooling CMOS sensor for astronomy photographing - to reduce noise. Subbed!

Strange thing. I've had an issue with reading SD-card and decided to disasseble the camera. Well, I disassabled it, then looked at it for a couple of minutes, then assembled it. Now it's working! Thank you. Was useful. 9/10 would disassable again.

Can you be more about this lens?
Is it really optimized for 16MP sensor?
Whats the focal length?

Добрый день! А на желтой крышке есть стекло или это стекло самого объектива? А то поцарапал стекло, но не понятно заказывать новую желтую крышку или сам объектив...

It would be possible to position the lens 90 degrees, to fit it within the framework of a mini quadricopter?
