There's lots of videos like these on the internet.

If you've ever wanted to see actual footage of an SLR firing off, here's the a700:

I found another one of a Canon in my favourites:

YouTube - Canon Camera Shutter/Mirror action in slow motion


EDIT:

And here's a closer look of the shutter itself:

OK that's about it.

Very cool. Thanks for the links. With the shock they go through, it's easy to see why they have an actuation limit around 100,000 frames.

That's something you don't see everyday, you usually just hear it.

Which sounds like a big number, until you consider the number of folks who shoot everything in machine-gun mode. (Saw a guy shooting a sunrise that way the other day).
