    Quiet and unobtrusive story. Just like the camera.

    Nice one, thanks! Do you think the opening shot of the lovers in the mirror was staged / posed for the camera?

    Thank you.

    It is nice to have a quiet camera sometimes, but there is nothing like the thwack of a Hasselblad, Graflex Model D or a Speed Graphic.

    Absolutely Mufstafa! Nothing wrong with staged shots, but I like to know what is what.

    The thwack means vibration.

    Is it not the case that the energy being disapated as noise "thwack" is not being disapated as vibrational energy?
    The louder the noise the less vibration perhaps.

    What causes the thwack sound? I would have thought the louder the sound the greater the vibration.

    The thwack sound is the mirror coming down after the shutter has closed. Therefore there is no vibration effects on the photograph except in the minds of the Hasselblad haters.

    I have a Hasselblad and don't hate them, but in terms of physics is what I'm saying incorrect?

    I was responding with the cause of the thwack, and I was not commenting on the physics. I think we should sit down and drink several Martini [the structure of the word is already in the plural form of Matinus] and talk about this over grilled Pacific salmon. Besides anyone who owns and uses Hasselblad is a wise and fortunate person.
