    Yep! That's what the shutter is for; it blocks any light coming in, and only lets in an exact amount (shutter speed) needed to expose the photo. I thought this too when I first got a camera, but its perfectly fine. If you want to learn more about exposure there's some good posts on here or some good books also.

    But your answer is, "yes."

    Yeah, sure. The shutter will stop any light from hitting the film (or else taking the lens cap off would be just as bad as taking the whole lens off).

    yes, no problem as you can read above. The shutter is in the camera, not in the lens.

    Just don't press the blue button. Spring loaded lens ejector. Be prepared for it and practice into a pillow first.
