D4-Live View Photography "Silent" Mode! Simply Amazing!

I keep learning little by little why the D4 is Nikons current Flag Ship Camera!

Tonight, i was playing around in the menu, and saw a feature called:
Live View Photography, and it had two choices:

Quiet, or Silent.

I tried quiet, and it was a little less quiet, but then i choose Silent, and boy
was it "Silent"...didnt make "A" shutter sound what so ever!

And when i held down the shutter to see if i could do "burst shooting",
it counted down from 5 seconds, and when i was finished, i had a whopping

187 shots of the same image at 1920x1280 in Fine Jpeg mode (lens used: 24-120mm F4)
The iso was set to auto, and it choose iso 5000.

The image came out pretty decent for being shot, hand held, while lying in bed sideways!

just imagine when its on a tripod with a shutter release cable!!

Man, anyone working on a movie set would LOVE this feature...no blimp needed!!
