High Speed Video of Canon DSLR Shutter

The action begins at the 60 second mark.

Here’s a great video showing the mirror and shutter mechanism in a Canon DSLR. The action begins 60 seconds in.

Keep in mind that the entire real-time duration of the mirror swinging up, the shutter coming down, the exposure, the shutter coming back up and the mirror swinging down is .213 seconds.

Great find, Tom!
