In this study, the rebound vibration characteristics of the internal mirror of an SLR camera are investigated using experimental models. The mechanism of the mirror rebound phenomena is tested by using the two-rectangular-metal-plates model, which has two plates bonded by double-sided tape. The mirror (plates) model is supported by fixing its longitudinal edge on a horizontal rotatable shaft. The bonded-mirror-model swings down freely around a horizontal axis and hits a stopper. A laser displacement meter is used to measures the amount of rebound and the mirror model vibration behavior. The rebound angle varies by the stopper position and the bonded position of the double-sided tape. In the case of a small rebound angle, the mirror part of the plate (upper side plate) vibrates with large amplitude, and its movement is measured by a 3-dimentional high-speed camera.
