    Most of my photo experience has been with large format and Rollei twinlens
    cameras, both very very quiet. I have an old Pentax KX I used to use many
    years ago, and one time scared off and entire flock of birds with the noise.
    This gives me an excuse to dig out the old Rollei every once in awhile.
    Thanks, JackM

  2. Maybe it's easier to add something that makes the sound of fluorite
    being crushed. That should make any photographer scream.

  3. No, but the guy is obviously a newbie...because digital cameras are
    considerably quieter than even their 35mm forefathers.

    I would put my 20D at about the same noise as my Canon film SLR, close
    enough not to matter. This always seemed a bit odd since the mirror on
    the 20D is smaller then on the film SLR.

    Not quite what you want, but it's in the same spirit. :)

    Ditto. I have a couple nice laughter series. I'm not sure why people have
    this reaction, but it works. :)

    If I had a dime for every missed shot with the 717 I'd be retired... well,
    at least I'd have an extra 50 bucks in my pocket. :)

    The 717 would mike a nearly silent click-click during exposure (stupid
    simulation sounds turned off of course) - perfect for weddings and stuff.
    The 20D mirror slapping around in the box turns heads occationally.
    Probably due to SLR envy. <g>

    Smaller, but maybe faster? A fast mirror has more energy to release in
    sound than a slow one. At 5fps the 20D shutter is pretty fast as SLR's go.

    I thought it very odd, because the 20D is a lot louder than my old A2 (EOS5,
    to those outside the US) and nearly as loud as my 1n, which seemed loud
    enough to wake the dead in an environment like a museum...

    My Canon A2 was just as fast, 5fps, and much, much quieter.

    Which makes it about 3x as loud as an old Olympus OM-1 film camera.
