This is simply amazing to see. It’s a process that so many photographers take for granted. The Slow Mo Guys made a video showing how the shutter and mirror retraction occur in a typical DSLR camera. This particular experiment used a Canon 7D which is their go-to camera for filming non-slow-motion footage.
Another thing they touch on is the “rolling shutter” effect that DSLRs have when capturing fast moving objects. The whole video is very interesting so if you have a few minutes, take a look. Enjoy!
What did you think? I found the whole video fascinating. If you want to see more interesting and slow motion videos, I highly recommend the Slow Mo Guys or Smarter EveryDay. Both are my favorites.
As always, thanks for reading!
