as far as I know the 1100D does not feature a quiet mode. I know my 1000D which your 1100D replaced does not feature a quiet mode.

I'm curious what are you shooting that would make a quiet mode a good feature?

I can tell you that I own the same camera and even in live view mode the shutter noise is still present. If a way to make it quieter exists on this camera (doubtful) i have not found it yet.

You can disable the beep when the focus gets locked: 1st menu on the left, 2nd option from the top. This way is a little quieter.

Its the sound of the mirror, so its not a sound effect but a physical noise. Some cameras have a "quite shutter" option that will soften the sound a bit. Useful in churches or quiet venues where a loud camera click can be obnoxious. Im not sure if yours does. If you don't like the focus-confirm beep, that can be disabled in the menu settings

That is the actuall sound of the shutter, not a sound effect like a phone's camera or point and shoot, lol

Very few DSLR cameras have a Quiet Shutter... Having had a t1i, t4i, 7D, and 5D3- the 5D3 is the only one that "works"... The 7D has some options- but is not really all that much different than not turning it on.. The 5D3- is difficult to discern more than a few feet away.


EOS 5D III, EOS 7D,EOS Rebel T4i, Canon 70-200 f/2.8 IS II, Canon 24-105L, Canon 18-135 IS STM, 1.4x TC III, 2.0x TC III, Σ 50mm f/1.4, Σ 17-50 OS, Σ 70-200 OS, Σ 50-500 OS, Σ 1.4x TC, Σ 2.0x TC, 580EXII(3), Canon SX-40, Canon S100
Fond memories: Rebel T1i, Canon 18-55 IS, Canon 55-250 IS, 18-135 IS (Given to a good home)...

Well, actually, it's only *partially* the sound of the shutter - the bulk of the sound is the mirror flipping down and back up before and after the shutter mechanism fires.

But yes, it's a physical noise, not something that can be "turned off"...



7D, 450D | 17-55, 10-22, 55-250, 50 1.8, 580EXII | YN568II | YN622 x3 | Magic Lantern | (Still) Jonesing for a 70-200 2.8...
Turns out a gripped 7D + 622 + 580exII + 70-200 2.8 IS MK2 is BLOODY HEAVY! Who knew?!!

Thanks for getting all technical, I am sure the op will know what the difference between the shutter and mirror is even if they don't know what is making the noise in the first place...
