As the name implies, a lens shutter is a type of lens that
has a shutter built into the lens.

It has a structure like an aperture feather, which is a circular combination of several blades like the shape of a leaf.

It is used in medium-format and large-format cameras to reduce blur shock, etc. at the time of shutter release.
