“There are many needs of the single-lens reflex camera provided with the optical view finder which can observe a motion of a raw object. A common single-lens reflex camera arranges a movable mirror between a lens and an image sensor, incident light is reflected in the optical view finder side at the time of object observation, and it has structure which has been over mechanically about the movable mirror and projects incident light on an image sensor at the time of exposure.”
