Weird question - does anyone have a diagramme of the vertical-run shutters used in Pentax DSLRs? I understand that they involve slats rather than the two curtains of a horizontal-run shutter, but don't really know what that means.

I would imagine that it's based on the technique developed as far back as the Pentax K2 which was basically a set of 'slats' that were swept vertically as the shutter opened.

I recall seeing quite an explicit diagram all those years ago but haven't located one to view here.

Maybe someone somewhere has one lurking around.

Here's one for a Nikon. Not the best.
