    I'm not sure I understand the reasoning behind your question. If the wildlife you are shooting are already moving, why are you concerned with the noise your camera makes?

    If your objective is stealth, then as others have suggested, you should buy a quieter camera. Maybe a rangefinder?

    The Hasselblad makes a unique sound that is part of the camera's charm. Wanting to shoot a Hasselblad without hearing its sound is, well, just wrong!

    I expect it could be done but I suspect it would still make more noise than you want. The MK version did not have mirror or body shutter they came out of the space program. In space no one can hear you scream or use a Hasselblad.

    The noise has been scaring some animals that were standing. Fox, coyote and deer can hear very good.

    I'm a bit deaf after repairing Hasselblads for so many years ;-)

    By the time they react to the sound, the photograph has been taken. Buy a sound blimp.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Not at all cjbecker, buy an ELM body. It will do everything you need and more and they are available at a very reasonable price.

    Having just re-read the thread, if you already shoot with the sportsfinder which I should have noticed and omitted to mention in my post, shoot in the mirror up mode. The difference is, although the subject is unlikely to be alerted by the sound of a blade shutter, the ELM would be faster to follow the action than manual winding if it was disturbed, and yes, I would still use a blimp.
