Ok, maybe this is a weird question. I just got my 30d today and the shutter seems really loud. Is there some way to adjust it? I am coming off of the xt and it was never this loud. Is it me, the camera or do I just need to get used to it? thanks!

You have to get used to it. Only the 1-series has a quiet shutter mode.

I think you just need to get used to it. I went from the xt to 30d as well.. and haven't looked back! Enjoy the 30.

I'm fairly certain that the 20/30D have the loudest shutters of the current Canon family. Just something to get used to, it can be a bit of a problem at *sensitive* events. (I was tasked with shooting a vigil for VTech students.... awkward, to say the least, despite having permission).

Yes the 30d has a loud shutter. You don't notice it as much over time.

Wrap a pillow around it!
If you thought the 30D was loud, you should try a 20D! Now that's LOUD!!!

The 5D has a great sounding shutter compared to the clack of the 30D. I almost purchased a 5D just for the solid sounding shutter vs. the 30D.

Does anyone like the sound of the 5D shutter over the 1D3 shutter (quiet, single shot, or hi-speed...)?

the 30 is a lot clunkier than the 350 but it also sounds more solid
have a look at this video link. you can listen to the shutter sounds from all the canon dslr range

^ thats actually interesting. only thing i dislike from the XT is the spring-sounding squeal after each click.

i dunno guys... i have xt and 30d... the 30d is a nicer sound -- just a deep ka-clunk sound... while the xt is more annoying with its wimpier clunk followed by a high pitch "wind up" whine which is annoying.

The 20D is positively quiet by comparison to my old EOS-1 film camera. I bought it out of a camera store rental department and while it functions fine it's sure noisy. It screeches like a Banshee during the film rewind, even when it's set to the slow rewind.

If I ever had to shoot an event where I needed quiet, I'd use my D60. You can barely hear the shutter on it compared to the 20D.
