Removing capacitor from digital camera

Hi all,

Can anyone please confirm whether or not I can simply remove the capacitor from a digital camera if I no longer want the flash feature? I'm hacking the camera with a timer circuit to do time-lapse photography, but I don't want the capacitor in there in case I get shocked while messing with the camera, or in case it affects battery life.
