I know what I’m getting my family for Christmas. 🙂

If you don’t mind holding as still as possible for 30 minutes and paying anywhere from $445 to $2295 (depending on the size of the finished product), you can have your own action figure (or wedding cake topper, or cat toy, etc.)!

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!
