Ughhh...it's just a straight up achooooo in those things... one of my AE-1Ps (I have 4 haha) has that...

I remember going from the A1 to the F1n, back when 6 macho frames a second meant something. I might not have looked pro, but I sure did sound pro :)

I fail to see how the shuttersound matters, maybe i'm stupid but it does not bother me the slightest what it sounds like. If it sounds like a Gatling gun or a car crushing machine at a scrapyard. As long as the camera delivers nice pics i'm satisfied. :)

It really doesnt matter, unless you are shooting golf or weddings where it can be a disruptive element. But it is part of the greater user experience, just as ergonomics matter little to image quality.

I didn't know how whiny the T1i shutter sounded until a couple of days ago. I was shooting a lecturer from the back of the room and it was pretty quiet when I took my first shot. All I heard was the squeal, click, then heads turning. :oops:

The 5D sounds like a rifle next to the pea-shooter T1i haha

The 5D sounds really clunky and funny but my old T1i sounded like a sneeze.

Gonzo: That's ofcourse true, i didn't think of golfing and such where it might disturb someone.

MikeTran: Haha, it would have been funny if someone said.. "bless you" after you taken the shot :D

I don't mind the shutter sound, but I do miss the whirring of my high speed motor drive in my film cameras. They should incorporate a sound effects generator to give us that sound between frames.

I know what your talking about now, I just used a 40d yesterday while waiting for my 60d and WOW, I hope my 60d sounds as good as the 40d I used yesterday. My T1i's sounds like crap compared to that, and really slow too, even with the same shutter speed the 40d sounded faster??? I hope my wife doesn't read this about her new camera. LOL

Nicest (quietest) shutter I've had the pleasure of operating is my old 10D (if anyone still remembers that camera). I wish my 1D Mark IV would be that quiet and still manage 10 fps. :)

Part of the question is - which part of the sound is the shutter and which the mirror.

To just hear the shutter shoot in live view - that takes out the mirror.

On that note - I like the sound of a 5D MK II - but I never had a problem with the sound of the 400D before that.

Good when you are at a sporting event and trying to get others to move out of your way. When they hear that shutter (especially on rapid fire) they tend to move over for you.

I love it when the 7D opens up at full burst. I went to a practice hockey game for the ducks and everyone around me up and down the bleachers were using rebels.

as soon as I squeezed the trigger on the 7D for the full 8FPS, everyone with a rebel within earshot stopped shooting and looked my way :lol:

My photography-related addiction makes a crack habit look like a fiscally responsible pasttime.
