GoPro’s new camera is a tiny cube. It’s unlike any GoPro ever made. What’s packed inside? iFixit tore the GoPro Hero4 Session apart—literally—to find the answer.

What did they find? Tiny circuit boards, of course, a fairly tiny lens assembly, and a totally sealed transparent cube they had to tear apart with a saw and a box knife. That could be bad news if you want to replace the battery, or repair a broken unit. But it’s good news when it comes to making sure this sucker stays waterproof.

Besides, it’s pretty cool how GoPro managed to cram so many miniature components into a case this small. Here’s an 360-degree X-ray of how it all fits together:
