How to make the flash circuit out of a old camera smaller?

The camera is outdated. It is from 2002 with a 2.1 MP and 3x optical zoom. The camera still works (not now), but the picture button is broken and case is cracked every where. This is a flash circuit out of a old Argus 3550. It still held a charge in it for 4 weeks. I am just not sure what traces to cut to make the board smaller also I don't know where power and ground is. I would like to make a coil gun or something out of it.

this looks complicated. i would just get a disposable camera they are WAY more simple. i really hate surface mount tech.
me too, when you want to unsolder something it has short pins, and you cant read name of components and use them for other projects
