Dispositif d'occlusion pour l'objectif d'une camera

Camera lens shuttering mechanism

Verschlussvorrichtung für Kameraobjektiv


A camera lens shuttering mechanism includes an image conducting unit disposed within a shutter housing when the camera is in a closed position so that the camera cannot record images. When moved to an open position, the shutter housing does not block the image conducting unit from imaging objects. The image conducting unit may be one or more lenses or one or more mirrors that reflect images to one or more lenses. When in the closed position, it is apparent to users that the camera is unable to transmit images.
