    The fake (I think) sound of film winding through the camera on my new Rebel
    XT is driving me nuts. Is there any way to shut it off? There is nothing
    in the manual. My old Sony DSC828 also made this sound, but it could be
    shut off.

    Thanks, JackM

    Hit the camera really hard with a big stick. Should solve the problem. (c:

    It is the sound of the mirror flipping up and returning along with the
    sound of the focal plane shutter being rewound.
    No, it's inherent in the mechanics of both DSLR & SLR cameras.
    There wont be, have you never used a proper (SLR)* camera before?
    That's a P&S toy! It has neither a mirror nor a focal plane shutter.
    Enjoy using it, I bought one a few months back (bought my first 35mm SLR
    in 1977); and explore what it can do. I suggest you get to grips with
    the creative modes, or even manual.

    * Before someone points out that a view camera is proper, I know.

    Open it up and remove the mirror.
    Problem solved.

    Thanks everyone for the "creative" solutions to the noisy camera issue.
    Actually, about 20 years ago I stopped using my noisy 35mm SLRs and went to
    large format and twinlens, and got used to having quiet cameras. Now I have
    a good excuse to get the old Rollei out every once and awhile. JackM
