    Another vote for the Nikon F3's MD4 & MN2 nicad combo. Sounds so crisp and very different to the sound made when running off of alkalines. My other two motor driven camera's, a Nikon FA /MD15 combo & a Nikon F5 don't even come close.

    I agree, but most of the sound comes from the mirror. The film moving makes very little noise.

    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.

    Why do the shutters sound like a squeaky Canon A Series shutter ?

    And why do the shutters sound like a squeaky Canon A Series shutter ?

    Whoever dreamt up the idea to use a malfunctioning shutter as the standard sound of a shutter, instead of something pleasant & lubed ?

    Ahhh, now a Hasselblad 500ELM is hard to beat, especially in a church! Heard a digicam the other day, not only a synthesised shutter sound, but motor wind as well....now that was weak assed.

    My Nikon FE2 & MD-12 at 3.5 FPS is ok but a bit too loud.

    My Nikon F4AS at 5.7 fp is *sweet* by comparison and much quieter.

    I laugh when I move the F4AS to CS (Continuous Silent) -then it wheezes like a 2-pack-a-day smoker at about 1 FPS. :-) Louder then 5.7 FPS...

    Another vote for the F3/MD4 combo. When I read the thread title that's all I could think of! Miss it!

    If you ever heard a Zeiss Ikon Contarex you know that very special shutter noise, it's a little bit like releasing 500 mechanic parts that are all under high tension, a little bit like a clockwork shooting a round like a battleship cannonade. Well, they made a motor drive for that camera to add more fun:

    A very weird noise, all together, I heard it once only. These gadgets are rare and in most cases defective today.

    I have the Nikon F4 with its built-in motor and a motorized Nikon F2. The sound of the F4 is nice but my favorite is the F2 with an MD1 or MD2 motor drive powered by an MB1 battery pack.
