Oo-ie, I been taking a closer look at the actual mechanics of my camera and I have some questions. Please berate me if I did something bad here and may harm my camera but I was just so fascinated I couldn't help myself.
I opened up the back to look more closely at how the film is really held in and advances, etc. I decided to see what it looked like when the shutter opens.
What I noticed is after clicking the shutter, when I advance, the shutter slids over and a different shutter comes across, just like film advance.
Am I seeing this wrong? Is it maybe just a bar that's sliding across the shutter that makes it look like a new piece of material? If so why, what does it do? If not, and I really have a new shutter sliding into place, where is the old one going and how does it recycle, it doesn't seem like there's enough room in there for that.
I'm utterly fascinated by this. I'm going to go hunt for diagrams of the innards but anything you wish to impart is greatly appreciated, even links to diagrams. Thanx!
