  • Patent number: 4183650
    Abstract: A camera is enclosed in a soundproof housing or "blimp" so as to effectively silence distracting noises generated by the camera in operating situations where such noises cannot be tolerated. Means are provided for silently and reliably actuating the shutter release mechanism of the camera from the outside of the soundproof housing, comprising a push rod which fits through the housing wall at one end thereof and is resiliently fastened to the wall of the housing at the other. The push rod engages a cam blade, this blade having a sloped surface formed at one end thereof. This one end of the cam blade is fitted into a slotted portion of a holder device which extends downwardly from one of the housing walls towards the shutter release button of the camera. A plunger extends out from this holder device into engagement with the shutter release button, the plunger being driven by the sloped surface of the cam blade to actuate the shutter release button when the push rod is manually operated.
