Default High Speed Video of E-P2 Shutter in Action

Hey all,

I just shot some high speed video of my E-P2's shutter in action at 1,200 frames per second using my Casio EX-F1. Here's a link to the video:

I also have one of my E-3; interesting to compare to the E-P2:

And if you're interested in neutral density filters, I just finished that episode today:

Enjoy!

Excellent example of how a focal plane shutter works in the video of the E-P2. The curtains always move at the same speed no matter the shutter speed in use. The slit just gets narrower and narrower, which increases the shutter speed.

Thanks for the comments Greg and shoturtle.

Yes, the high speed video does wonders to clarify such subjects. The shutters may move at the same speed, but still blisteringly too fast for us to see anything useful at normal speed.
