    How much quieter is EOS 33 over EOS 50

    Hi
    I have the EOS 50 and has been shooting some church
    ceremonies but wonder if i could get less noise
    from a EOS 33 ?

    what would be a mouse quiet camera ?
    OM 3/4 ?

    I need overall quiet operations not just in film
    rewind..........

    I've got the same problem with my T90.

    An outcome would be a camera with (coupled) rangefinder and leaf shutter.

    Most rangefinders are pretty quiet, even the cloth shuttered focal plane ones.

    My EOS 650 and my Pentax SFX -- both autowind, autofocus cameras -- are incredibly loud. On the other hand, I took a photo on the bus the other day with my Zorki 2C and the person sitting directly in front of me clearly didn't even hear it.

    If you don't want to go the route of a rangefinder, than one idea is to get rid of the auto wind business. I think that an OM 1 or 2 (or probably an OM 3 or 4, but I have never used one) or a Nikon FE or FM series camera will be a great deal quieter than the EOS cameras, but not as quiet as a rangefinder. The winding mechanism in Auto Focus cameras seems to be very loud compared to using your thumb.

    Yeah, my Pentax P50 is much quieter than the SFX although the mirror slap is still noisy compared to a leaf shutter or cloth focal plane shutter.

    It's like a blow-up pillow that goes over the camera and muffles the sound. I've used them in court before.

    Why not use a TLR Rolleiflex or similar. Very quiet and smaller than a blimp...slightly.

    If you're talking about the Elan 7 (EOS 33's name in North America), the shutter slap is slightly softer compared to the Elan II (EOS 50), although the film rewind transport's similar. The Elan 7 is one of Canon's quietest film SLR, and compared to my EOS 3, it's hardly audible in a church environment, while the EOS 3's loud "ke-clunk" can be heard from outside a closed-door room.
