what's up with the shutter sound?????

Honestly, after the first click, I thought the mirror broke off.

I fire off another shot just to make sure, and I swear it sounds like I'm dropping a duece in le toilet. Ca-Plunk.

I've been following all the 5D3 threads, and I used to say to myself, after all the mentions of amazing new AF, a lot of people were mentioning the shutter sound. And I was like "jeez, $3500 for a camera, and people are commenting on the shutter sound." That sounds pretty desperate.

Now I understand.

Definite upgrade from my 5dc, but I think I'm going to need to get some ear plugs.

If it makes you feel better, I think the 5D3 has a cluck sound as well. That's why we use silent shutter mode. :p

Yes I just got one yesterday and that sound is strange, you can also feel the vibration from it.

It does make a clunky noise, but I know it's giving me great images.

Yea, I know what the OP means - the shutter sound on my 5D mkII is so bad, I had to try it approx. 38,000 times just to make sure it was functioning properly.:D
So far, so good!

Eric

So I know this guy, good friend and fellow Civil War aficionado.
Said this to me a couple days ago and I said good luck posting That one.
Been laughing ever since the phone conversation.
I tried not to let the shutter sound bother me, but now...... well, LOL.

I guess I'll have to move up to the 5D III now.

Sheeeessssssshhhhh.
