    Hi I have a Bronica ETRS, and notices that the mirror stays open after fired until the film is winded. Is this correct? If so, how does the light stop hitting the film?

    Thanks

    NOOB here :(

    Yes, it is correct for the ETRS. The shutter in the lens closes and stops light from hitting the film.

    A mirror that returns on its own is called an instant return mirror. Not all cameras have this feature.
