    Actually the sound of your shutter regardless of age or type is important as it will often be the first clue that the shutter is becoming faulty. In addition with leaf shutters the sound is an accurate way of measuring slow shutter speed and again these tend to be the first to malfunction and slow or drag.

    These are MP3's of three shutters at increasingly faster shutter speeds used in Audacity (or Sound Forge) to measure the slower speeds. These are the speeds I use most.

    A trivial topic, but hey, some fun should be allowed

    I find the shutter sound of the Bronica RF645 quite charming. Since it's a bit difficult to describe intonation with the written word I won't attempt to line up consonants...

    The "gem" you refer to is still being researched. . .

    Then why didn't you wait until you had concrete evidence instead of posting something potentially damaging you overheard from the local Kumbaya cafe?

    They all sound great when they're working. It's when they hesitate or stop half way that they cease being musical.

    My Fuji GW690 has a horrible cheap "ping" sound but my Contax II has a lovely gentle "zip" on medium speeds.

    Ka-BLAM!

    EDIT: Actually, I guess that is the sound of the mirror. The shutters just go "click".

    The rotary focal plane shutter in a Mercury II half-frame camera has a distinctive woosh-KLUNK sound with enough vibration after the exposure that one can feel as well as hear the shutter.

    Anyone else heard the story that the word "kodak" came from the sound of a simple shutter?
