Low cost shutter speed tester

  1. Malc Raggett
    Here's a DIY idea for anyone wanting to test their leaf or focal plane shutter: http://www.mraggett.co.uk/shuttertes...ttertester.htm

    Use the setup in a darkened room with a torch. A laser light won't work as well, but any DC light source that can be shone at the entire lens front element (or lens mount in the case of a SLR) is fine.

    I've used this method in a similar way. I just use the microhpone on my laptop as the input. No electronics required. The circuit shown should however give you a cleaner signal with less noise.
