Canon EOS 5D: Shutter in slow motion

Did you already see an SLR camera operating in slow motion? The video here will show you the steps -normally invisible to the naked eye- that are splitting the shutter operation in individual stages:

  1. mirror going up,
  2. shutter uncovering the sensor,
  3. nearly immediately, shutter covering it again (the image is now “in the box”),
  4. mirror falling down too.
