Shutter Sounds: Pentax, Canon, Nikon, Olympus, and Sony Cameras Compared


How do the shutter sounds of popular camera brands compare with one another? Which cameras are loud, and which are quiet? Photographer Davin Lavikka recently published the 49-second video above to shed some light (or sound?) on these questions. It’s a comparison of the shutter sounds of the Pentax 645Z, Canon 5Ds, Nikon D810, Olympus OM-D E-M5 II, and Sony a6000.

The video highlights the Olympus E-M5 II‘s silent shutter mode, which can shoot 1/16000 photos with an electronic shutter that’s virtually inaudible — great for situations in which loud shutter sounds would be intrusive and inappropriate.
