[QUOTE]\nBonus Laughter Section:\n\nCheck this out. Annika's chosen line of cameras are well known as the\nnoisiest ones ever made. They should offer ear-plugs with them as a standard\naccessory, for the photographer as well as everyone within 100 yards.\n\n[URL]http://a.img-dpreview.com/reviews/CanonEOS30D/Samples/Audio/eos30d-raw.mp3[/URL]\n\nDid you wait for the even greater slowdown later in the recording? LOL\n\nThat sample's volume wasn't amplified, that's how loud those cameras actually\nare from a normal distance.\n\nHere's an Pentax K10D recorded from the same distance using the same settings\nfor noise-level comparison\n\n[URL]http://a.img-dpreview.com/reviews/PentaxK10D/Samples/Audio/k10djpegfine.mp3[/URL]\n\nLOL!![/QUOTE]\n\nHOLY SHIT!\n\nCheck out this sound sample of a Canon EOS 40D! Recorded with the same setup and\nrecording levels as the above camera samples.\n\n[URL]http://a.img-dpreview.com/previews/CanonEOS40D/Samples/Audio/30sec.mp3[/URL]\n\nAnd I thought the 30D was bad? Damn! They shouldn't just provide earplugs with\nthis one, they need to sell hearing-aid insurance policies with them -\- FOR THE\nNEIGHBORS! It even pins the audio recording levels! Check out the waveform in\nany audio editor, its amplitude is clipped! Moving the microphone into another\nbuilding when firing off this piece of shit camera probably wouldn't have even\nhelped.\n\nTo top it off the burst rate slows down to the 2.3 fps speed of a 0 P&S\ncamera after the internal buffer is full. Yeah, that's worth all that 00 for\nJUST the camera body. LOL!!\n\nNo wonder Annika doesn't understand anything that's ever told to him, his\ncamera's have made him DEAF. Hey Annika? How often do the neighbors call up the\ncounty assessor's office to report you for construction violations without a\npermit every time you fire up that jackhammer?\n\nLOL!\n\nWith that much noise and vibration how much do you want to bet that camera slaps\nitself to death before it reaches even15,000 shots. That would be an EASY bet.\n\nNo wonder Annika loves the 40D so much, he doesn't have to get attention on-line\nanymore, the WHOLE NEIGHBORHOOD will know when he's around taking photos! The\nPERFECT camera for an attention whore like him! LOL\n\nHey Annika? Get a Gatling gun next time for even more attention, it might even\nbe louder than your piece of shit 40D -\- MIGHT be louder.\n\nIT MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA FOR EVERYONE TO TYPE IN ALL UPPER-CASE IN THE FUTURE\nWHEN REPLYING TO ANNIKA, IT MIGHT BE THE ONLY WAY HE CAN READ IT, IT'S SHOUTING\nLOUD ENOUGH VISUALLY FOR IT TO GET THROUGH THE DEAFNESS HIS CAMERA CAUSED.\n\nHEY ANNIKA, DID YOU GET ANY GOOD PICTURES LATELY? NO? STILL THE SAME OLD SHIT AS\nUSUAL EH? EH?!?\n\nHEY! CAN'T YOU HEAR ANYTHING ANYMORE?\n\nAT LEAST ALL YOUR SUBJECT HEADERS IN YOUR POSTS FINALLY MAKE SENSE, ALL BEING\nTYPED IN UPPER-CASE AND ALL. WE CAN ALL UNDERSTAND WHY NOW. AND HERE WE THOUGHT\nIT WAS FROM LOUD ROCK CONCERTS.\n\nLOL!!
