Our buddy Destin from Smarter Every Day is about to have a new baby, but seconds before rushing to the hospital, he shares a neat slo-mo (or high-speed, depending on your take) video of a Canon 60D shutter going through the a full exposure cycle.

You can see the four stages of the exposure:

  • The mirror flips
  • The first curtain goes down to expose the sensor
  • Second curtain covers the sensor to end the exposure
  • And finally the mirror jumps back up

Now, here is a question for extra credit, can you calculate the exposure time?

If you are like me and like this kind of random science, you can register to Smarter Every Day Youtube channel here.

Congrats Destin for your new baby!
