NOTE: The shutter pieces are not included in the first two pictures of this step because they slide around too easily for us to take pictures with them in the camera.

REMINDER: This step is very difficult and may require multiple attempts. Align teal and orange circled tabs from the first picture with the respective teal and orange holes in the shutter pieces. After the shutter mechanism is placed into the camera, make sure all three shutter pieces are attached correctly.
