Lesson Goal: This lesson contains detailed descriptions of various shutter designs, where you will find them and how to service them. We emphasize the design and troubleshooting of digital SLR shutters since they are such a large part of the repair market. During the lab portion of this lesson you will get hands on experience servicing a focal plane shutter. When you complete this lesson you should be able to service shutters as well as troubleshoot and repair cameras with shutter problems.

Hands On Lab: Disassemble / Repair a Focal Plane Shutter

  • The Lab Shutter is not included with the 45% Paperless Discount.

  • The Lab Shutter is available for purchase ($100.00).

  • Tip: If you buy an older D SLR you can use it for this and other lessons. It is a cheap easy way to go and you can resell it after you are done. Using the 45% Discount and a used D SLR really knocks down the cost! Free offer: Match your model to one of our Troubleshooting Guides and we will send you the Guide FREE!
