Light Path Entering Lens to Prism & Film
Using a laser beam pointed through a maze of beam splitters to form 3 equal light paths entering a Cut-Away Canon Pellix Camera with lens. Instead of a normal reflex mirror the Pellix camera has a pellical mirror that allows light to reflect to the camera's focus screen, penta-prism & eyepiece, and also allows light to travell through it to the shutter & then film. In order to illuminate the laser light paths, smoke was blown towards the camera with a black background as seen in last photo. The light paths were drawn over with a red marker in photo 3. Moving the mouse/arrow over the photos will magnify them.
