    Is the Makina 67 loud?

    This camera appeals to me but I believe it is a focal-plane shutter. Is it cloth? How loud is it? I guess that is difficult to quantify in words but I know that the Bessa III is silent. Ummm I mostly prefer quiet cameras but most 35mm SLRs are bareable and most 120 SLRs are too loud and have a jolt to them.

    It is a central lens shutter, but it is not extremely silent.

    Makina's use the same leaf shutters as the Bessa, Compur, although there was a focal plane unit available as an extra. So they are as quiet as any other similar camera.

    Some models had their shutter behind the lens so not a central between the lens elements.

    The 670 sounds pretty quiet to me, nowhere near as loud as an slr.

    thanks.

    I thought I read it was loud somewhere..

    Maybe I got it mixed up with the Fuji 6x9 RF's or someone exaggerated it's noise levels.

    It sounds that noise isn't a serious issue. I don't expect it to be dead silent, but I don't want it to be obnoxiously loud.

    Or the Pentax 6x7 which is nearly a thunderclap.
