Heel snelle levering van mijn nieuwe camera!

Het was ons (mijn man) vast niet gelukt zonder de goede begeleidende filmpjes!

Hat prima funktioniert dank einfacher Anleitung und einfacher Bauweise.

Geschafft! - Schritt 4 war beim Slim Case nicht so einfach, aber nach ein paar Minuten hatte ich es raus. Ich frage mich bloss, was ich nun mit der alten Kamera mache..? Kann man die zurückschicken? Gibt es dazu irgendwelche Infos? Danke für die Anleitung und allfällige Infos bezüglich “Zukunft der alten Kamera” ;-) !
