Super-Slow-Motion Video of the High-Speed Inner Workings of a DSLR Camera as It Takes a Picture

Gavin Free of the Slow Mo Guys utilizes a high-speed Phantom Flex camera to capture the inner workings of a Canon 7D DSLR camera at 10,000 frames per second to show off just how quickly its shutter moves to take a shot.

For a very fast moving subject, you want a much shorter shutter duration. The fastest this camera will do it is an eight-thousandth of a second.
