If you want to hear a loud shutter, try shooting a Hasselblad.

I love the double "whump" of a Hasselblad 500C - there is no better sound in my opinion  The leaf shutters on the Hasselblad C and CF lenses are near silent - all the noise comes from the auxiliary (rear) curtains and the mirror. I think the noise is actually from the massive amount of air displaced as the curtains open and mirror moves up before the exposure and then the curtains close after the exposure is complete.  On the other hand - the HB2000 series (and maybe 200 series) with the huge focal plane shutters are just plain loud.
