I don't have the software to do it, but if someone had a better video editor that showed a sound meter, it would be easier to figure out which movements went with which sounds.

On my little video, I can see when I go through frame by frame that two fairly loud clicks come before the first curtain closes. My guess is they are associated with an internal spring or a solenoid which trips the shutter. The shutter blades themselves are associated with much more muted sounds.

However, my video editor does not show me a synced sound graph, so I can't relate it to the above audio recording.
