    Mmm...

    Those who once owned a Nikon F2 and want to be reminded of that 1/60th second sound.

    The silent "whizz" of a Konica Autoreflex at 1/8th is nice to listen to. Otherwise a Press-Compur from the 50's (you can hear the wheels spinning) or the "kla-chung" of a Mamiya 645 are my favourites.

    Ah, the same whizz as what the Nikkormat FT series makes at 1/8th (same Copal Square shutter).

    For me, probably the F. It's a little quieter than the F2 and the F3. But, not when the F-36 drive is in use. :-) BTW: if you want to be reminded as to how an F3 with MD-4 sounds like, just use the camera app on an iPhone. The sound produced by the iPhone is a sample of an F3/MD-4 combo being fired.

    Want to be heard with a camera that's not motorized? Try an FM2n, FM3a, FE2, or FA for 35mm, a Hasselblad V-series body for medium format, or a Speed Graphic's focal plane shutter. The Nikon bodies have a definite *CLACK* when fired.

    Anyone ever notice that their Japanese camera goes "crick" and German camera goes "schnap"?
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    The shutter of my Leica II sounds like an insect’s whisper.

    I guess that explains why German photographers like their Schnappes shots.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I just finished my first roll on my Pentax 67. Didn't sound like "crick" to me.

    More like a "ka-BANG!" :grin:
