    Odd Hassy Question for repair man.

    Ok so here is the question, I use a 500cm but not for the normal reasons, I use it for moving wildlife. Most of the time I am shooting at infinity and don't have to focus. I am totally shooting with the sports finder for all of this, so focusing is not needed. The only problem with the 500cm is the sound of it. I would like to remove the mirror and aux shutter in the back of the camera, ( yes I know I would have to put the dark slide in after ever shot to wind the film and shutter). Would it be possible to remove those and still beable to wind he film and cock the shutter?

    The way you are using it, it would probably be easier to get a Mamiya C220 or C330 interchangable lens TLR. There are lenses up to 250mm and the cameras aren't all that expensive.

    One other possibility may be to buy or make a blimp for it.

    Why not explore the sound blimp for the Blad, it would be far cheaper than butchering a perfectly good camera. Victor H. was an avid wildlife photographer and he had the "stuff" made to help him get better photos.

    That's why I said I would put the dark slide in after the exposure. Even If i could just remove the mirror would help the noise.

    Best case I would buy a broken parts camera And do this too it. I would not do it to a perfectly working camera. It would also be a backup body.

    You're also going to have to stop the lens down before removing the dark slide. It wouldn't be impossible, maybe not even difficult just to figure out hat you need removed.
    You can eliminate the rear curtain noise by prefiring the camera (black rectangle near wind knob).
    Actually by pre firing it the only noise is after the shot is taken when the flaps and mirror move to the start position.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.
