Seagate Microdrive: Actuator Arm, Read/Write Head and Platter

The internals of a 5 gigabyte Seagate microdrive, a miniature hard disk designed to fit in a CompactFlash Type II slot.

 

Moem will fashion a trinket or a necklace out of this.

Stoneshop had to use a 0.6mm screwdriver to unscrew the tiny screws and open the device.

 

Shot with my Canon FL bellows with a reversed Pallas 135mm f/2.8 attached to it.

 

The bigger picture can be seen here. The entire drive is pictured here. View the setup here.
