The inside mechanism of a SLR Shutter

I came across this blog which clearly illustrates (with the help of time lapse photography) how the shutter and mirror of a SLR camera work. Many Thanks to Marianne Oelund  for her ingenious work and to Jeffery Friedl for turning it to a web movie.

Also here is a blog by Derek Miller which describes how the shutter of a SLR camera actually works.
