Thread: shooting silently - no shutter click please!!!!!

  1. shooting silently - no shutter click please!!!!!

    I am going to my grandson's senior chamber choir Christmas recital tonight. Does anyone know how to keep the shutter from making the clicking noise when a photo is taken? I hate to disturb other people around me when I am taking photos. I have a Canon D50 camera.

  3. I'm not sure that you can, Mollie. Correct me if I am wrong, but I always thought that the click was the sound of the mirrors moving. I know that you can silence the beep, but I have no idea about the click. Enjoy the concert!

  4. Thanks girls . . . I've silenced the beep, but can't find a silencer for the click when the photo is taken. I did read that the newer more expensive (or the point and shoots) are able to be silenced1

    That's quite a nice little demo, Joanne. I'm not sure what the difference is between the options.
    Yes, the mirror makes quite a bit of noise.
    My understanding is that if you're in live view the mirror is already up so it will make less noise.
    The other noise is the shutters. Not much you can do about those!

    The only suggestion I can make is to use an iPhone!

  9. Well . . . we just got home from the concert . . . grandson, was wonderful!!!

    I took several photos . . . nothing to write home about. He is tall and was on back riser . . . I could get a good view of him, so maybe there is at least one shot of him singing his heart out! Beautiful Christmas songs & hymns!!! Can't believe that this is his last Chamber Choir performance. Makes me a bit sad . . . did shed a few tears when the seniors sang Away in a Manger.

    Thanks for your suggestions about the clicks . . . I will try again to get the audio work on the link from Joanne.
