According to latest ownership input here on the forum, the new 5D series are the quietest. However the 1D3, 1D4, 5D3, 1DX, and 7D2 (and assuming 6D) have a silent mode that is quite a bit quieter than the conventional mirror slap/shutter cycle.

The 70D also has a silent mode.


70D 18-135 STM, 10-22mm, 24mm STM, 40mm STM, 55-250 STM, 270EX II

Yes, the 70D silent mode seem to work.

I have also read that the autofocus works in live view, and are excellent. So i can use live view with AF if i need to.

But if the 70D is anything like mine, in spite of using 'silent mode' the camera when focusing makes thunks much more noticeable than merely triggering the shutter!

But all make almost no noise in Live-vew mode.

Yes, wouldn't live view be the best since the mirror is already up?

I just got my 70D today. It is significantly louder than my 6D with both in quiet-mode single shot.

And when I used a 6D and 5D3 at a dance recital earlier this year, the 5D3 silent mode was quieter for sure.

I've never shot with the ^D but I never felt the silent mode on the 70D was silent, but it's much quieter than the normal mode.

The newer the body, the quieter the S mode tends to be.

I recently added a Sound Meter app to my smartphone, and I dragged out every SLR in the inventory to see how they fared. I positioned each camera with lens at f/4 and shutter speed 1/60, and these are the results

Olympus OM-1 50dB
Olympus OM-4 50dB
Canon 40D 46-50dB, 48dB Live View shutter release, 50dB Live View focus
Canon 5D 50 dB
Topcon Super D 55 dB
Topcon D-1 57dB (this has the Copal Square horizontal travel shutter (c.1964) which is more similar to Canon dSLR shutters.
