How Loud/Silent Is The 7D's Shutter?
Feb 1, 2010

I currently have two 30D bodies that I plan to upgrade to a 5D mkI and a 7D. My 30Ds are absolutely freaking loud. Recently I was shooting a wedding, and I felt bad during some quiet instances when it really stuck out to me that the camera was making a lot of noise.

I know 1-series cameras have options to delay the mirror return and/or more silent, quieter shooting modes. I'm wondering, how loud is the 7D (and I suppose, the 5D) compared to my loud 30D?
