    Steve.
    Here, here. But some do have a more distinct sound than others. Weighing in, I would give a nod to either the Hasselblad 553EL/X or an F2 w/MD2 chewing through film whilst set on "M3." Or, for a quieter touch...an M series.

    The sound that my cell phone makes when I'm 'sneaking' a Q&D of grandson sounds somewhere between the copal and the compur but not as quiet as my compur electronic shutter. I was not aware that either copal or compur made mechanical shutters small enough to fit in behind that small lens on the back.

    A Nikon F with the mirror locked up sounds pretty nice. A Nikkormat FTN with the mirror locked up still sounds like a trap being sprung.

    Actually, I quite like the sound of my Hasselblad 500C when I have locked the focal plane shutter up and expose by just firing the leaf shutter. A sort of shiurrt sound.

    The sound of a Hasselblad is easily my favorite. Those are cameras where you you can hear them from across the room and not even have to look to know what it is

    I like the sound of my Mamiya too, but there's alot of torque.

    The pentax67's 165mm lens has a leaf shutter in it. To use it, you set the camera's FP shutter to 1/8th and cock the lens' shutter. When you release, you hear a KLUNK...click..KLUNK.
