Anyone find the shutter "click" sound on the new 70d strange??I tried one out yesterday and was overall pretty impressed with the camera but that shutter"click" sound was a bit out of place and frankly I didn't' like it much,might even keep me from buying one.

It's a mechanical sound. 60d and t3i I own arw far different sounds. Doesn't bother me at all.

Out of the different Canon body’s I’ve had the 70D does sounds strange, it took me about a week to get use to it.

Yes, it was strange. A friend of mine said it sounded like his Nikon D5000. I keep it in silent most of the time.

I didn´t say T3i is a bad camera, only that it´s shutter sound wasn´t ear pleasing.

I've never, ever thought about focal plane shutter noise. It is what it is and that says it all. Yes, its noisier than other types of shutter, but then its far more complex than the rest.

Sounds completely normal. The 500d, 550d, 600d etc are strange sounding.

Well it does sound different than any of the Canon 's I've ever owned(xti,40d,7d,6d,g1​5).I guess there is a "get used to it factor" involved.

It sounds almost the exact same as the 7D to my ears. It sounds as though the 70D's shutter has a slightly deep 'thonk' to it or almost as if it slams down harder. Other than that though, which seems very slight, they sound incredibly similar. Is that what sounds different to you?

The sound of a shutter would probably the very last thing on my checklist of things to consider when buying a camera, even the direct print button ranked a higher priority. ;)

Like others state, you get used to it. Especially if you have more than one body and switch between them alot, you quickly learn to disregard the mirror/shutter curtain sound.

It's never come into consideration for me. Does it take good pictures?
