Do any of you shooting 1D bodies find the shutter too loud for quiet Church Ceremonies? Maybe it doesn't sound as bad from far away but sometimes I feel the shutter is super loud during the ceremony LOL. I'm just waiting for the Priest, Pastor or whatever to say out loud "what in the world is that noise" lol.

Don't worry about it and dont' overthink it. they will know after the first click that it is a camera and will be too busy doing what they do to worry about it. Don't YOU worry it, it is what it is. I have a 1Ds and have never had an issue, and yes, it is loud.

I also wouldn't worry about it. I had a guest complain about my 40D once at a ceremony. Didn't stop me from snapping away. I stay in the back of churches so it's his fault for showing up late and sitting in the back row where the photographers and videographers had clearly set up their stuff. Plus most people expect it.

If you have a quieter camera and feel comfortable using that instead go ahead, but otherwise don't worry and shoot away!

They love the shutter sound. It sounds so .. professional. Bahahah.

I don't photo bomb. And have it on single. I shoot when the moment is right. No need to go railgun on them .. yet.

Eh, it has nothing on the sound of a Rebel. It sounds like there is a small banshee in my shutter.

Haha! I used to call my 40D shutter a Gorilla. "Don't worry, it's just a small gorilla banging around in camera."

Is there still a custom function to reduce the mirror slap noise (there was on the 1D2)? From what I recall, it would hold the mirror up until you released the shutter button, effectively making it a somewhat longer, but quieter noise.

The D700's pretty damn loud, louder than what I remember of the 1D3. No-one has ever said anything.

Set camera mode to "S" and the shutter noise is reduced.

LOL, good call. I've had a 1DIII and now a IDIV and have never used that setting and even forgot about it! Thanks for the reminder. Feels weird using it though LOL. Sounds like shutter is broken haha.

I find S more obtrusive than normal. The regular shutter is one super quick "SNAP!" sound. It's not bad at all! S is long and drawn out. Regular mode is fine... especially when I remember the sound of my 20D. These 1-series sounds are nothing! I remember back in the day, reaching the end of the roll of film and that causes the auto rewind function to kick in. So it's the middle of the ceremony and all of a sudden my film motor is loudly buzzing away for 30 solid seconds! So a few snaps here and there are nothing to really worry about.

If you're really anal about it, shoot in live view.

The shutter on my new 5d is much louder than my 40d, more squeezy in a kind of weirde way as well. Im not too worried though, its better than the fake shutter sound on iphones/ smart phones.. i normally here that going off all day from guests! haha

Funny how things have changed. You should have heard what it was like in the film days when there were no hypersonic motor lenses, you had the mirror slap noise, the film advance noise, and hopefully you didn't need to rewind and change film!

I shoot with a 1D and 5D and it is not really a problem. I have people tell me all the time that they had no idea I was even there.
