Slowed down Nikon D3 shutter and aperture

16 03 2011

Have you ever taken the lens off your camera, clicked the shutter and watched the shutter open? I have, and while trying this on an expensive DSLR runs the chance of getting dust and stuff on your sensor, it’s less of a problem with an old school SLR.

The video shows a Nikon D3 shooting 11 frames per second (fps) at a shutter speed of 1/4000 and an aperture of f/16 filmed at 5,000 fps.
