English term or phrase: setting cam
contexto (sobre câmara fotográfica): When the shutter is charged (left unused), the shutter interlocking lever (copper-colored component) and the shutter setting cam (plastic component indicated by the rotating arrow) are in contact as shown below and a force is applied from the shutter interlocking lever in the direction of →. If the camera is left unused for a long time in this state, a small indentation is formed on the surface of the plastic setting cam, preventing the setting cam from rotating in the direction of the rotating arrow together with the release operation, or causing a delay in the start of rotation. If the cam cannot rotate, the shutter interlocking lever (first curtain) cannot function, preventing exposure and consequently producing an entirely black image. If a delay occurs, an abnormality occurs during the interval with the second curtain and in an extreme cases, a dark blue image is produced in relation to image transmission.
