While in China, we toured factories, seeing how cameras were made.

In the 15 minute video inside, we show step by step how a camera is made / assembled to help you understand what it takes to build a camera.

The camera chosen is an entry level HD IP camera with integrated IR:

Here is an overview of the components:

This is a fascinating video. I do not perceive this assembler is moving as fast as he could or even normally might.

Here is the screw assembly tray. It's simple and I imagine this cuts down assembly time by a bunch.

Mike said that the assembler was relatively slow because he was being filmed, so presumably this could be significantly faster, especially if the tasks were divided up.
