Camera volume (as in decibels)
Dec 19, 2011

Simple question..

I live in the middle of nowhere and don't have the opportunity to try out many cameras.

I have an E-30, and while recently shooting in a church, I became aware that the camera was just plain "loud". I switched to my Lumix LX5 which is quiet as a mouse in slippers.

So, image quality etc aside, is a mirrorless camera quieter? No, I can't afford a Leica, but would something like an EP3 produce less decibels than a DSLR?
Thank you for all and any advice...
