    analogic cameras with no (or with little) vibrations of the mirror:a list!

    hi guy...this is the first time I write here,but i read always this fantastic forum.I apologize for my bad english...but I never studied english!
    anyway I hope you understand me!

    I've always been curious about the reflex cameras with less mirror vibrations and which instead were the worst (i mean reflex cameras with very loud and noisy movement mirror mechanism).I know that the best choice,if you are searching no vibrations or at least less vibrations of the mirror mechanism, are the ragefinder cameras.

    But my intention is to catalog the reflexes in three categories:

    1)camaras with no vibrations

    2)cameras with some vibrations

    3)cameras that vibrate too, so reflexes with a very noisy movement mechanism of the mirror.

    Do you want to start?

    Thanks.

    Olympus OM-1 was built with special air shock absorbers to reduce mirror vibrations and noise. It also has a lock up feature for very sensitive needs.

    rangefinders do not have mirrors, and consequently no shake

    The Pentax 645 medium format series is renown for low mirror vibration.

    Don't forget that shutters cause vibration, too. Leaf shutters generate less vibration than focal plane shutters. On the other hand, some focal plane shutters generate most of their vibration when closing, after the picture is taken. It's also true that in some cameras most of the vibration caused by the mirror occurs when the mirror drops, after the picture is taken.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.

    Yes they do have mirrors-just not the kind that create shake!

    The Minolta XD-11 has an air damper on the mirror and a very smooth vertical shutter.

    Canon EOS RT and 1N-RS have stationary pellicle mirrors. No vibration, no viewfinder blackout during exposure.
    The EOS 3 is very loud, some of that is no doubt the winder. I've never tested its vibration.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    The Canon EOS 1-N RS has a stationary pellicle mirror, so no mirror slap. Also the Canon Pellix and a few others.

    Nikon offered a couple high-end and extremely rare bodies/MD sets with fixed, pellicle mirrors; the F2 High Speed (F2H, 10 fps) and the F3 High Speed (F3H, 13 fps). For those doing the F3H math, that's one roll of 36 torched in two and three-quarter seconds!
