With every new camera in the series, there are some changes and improvements over its predecessors. Some of these changes even include the shutter sound. If you’d like to hear how it changed across all four Sony A7R models, turn your volume up and check out the videos below.
There are many kinds of cameras: DSLRs, point and shoot, mirrorless, even that weird Sony F707 from when DSLRs started. But one thing almost never changed since when cameras started. Even the old Analog cameras. The Shutte Button. Sure, it was mechanical at first and got a new “half-press” when auto fucus was introduced. But the overall mechanics stayed the same. Click the button – make a photo.
In a patent application spotted by Canon News, you see something that resembles a touchpad. If you google translate the patent (like I did), you see that it does not just resemble a touchpad. It is a touchpad. Moreover, the back LCD has another touch screen, similar to what we are actually used to in recent camera lines.
If there’s such thing as ASMR videos for photographers, it must be the videos of camera shutter sounds. Ace Noguera created an interesting and slightly different kind of such video. He collected nine cameras dating from the 1940s to 1990s and recorded their shutter sound. Other than being oddly satisfying, this video is also a brief history of film camera shutter sounds.
Most cameras are rated at somewhere between 100,000 and 300,000 shutter actuations. And no matter which DLSR or mirrorless camera you have, it will eventually die. Now, timelapse photography makes you press that shutter way more often than doing any other type of photography. Does this mean your camera will die faster? And should you care about it? In his latest video, Matthew Vandeputte addresses some of these concerns.
If you want to take a break from the frightening news we’ve been surrounded with for months, then I something perfect for you. A video shared by ViralHog shows a baby boy clicking his father’s Nikon, laughing uncontrollably every time he hears the shutter sound. Check it out below, I’m sure you’ll giggle along.
It’s odd, the effect that the sound a camera’s shutter makes when it’s fired can have on a person. It’s odder still that we require one at all, although they add them to the apps we use for the otherwise silent cameras in our phones. A good heavy *clunk* makes you confident you’ve got the shot, while others can leave you feeling a little underwhelmed.
In this video, a Fujifilm employee going by the YouTube username nycphotog2006 decided to put together the sounds of five of Fujifilm’s most popular interchangeable lens mirrorless cameras – The Fujifilm X-T1, X-T2, X-T3, the shiny new X-T4 and the video-centric X-H1.
I must admit I enjoy ASMR videos of cooking. They’re so soothing, plus I also learn new recipes. But if you’re looking for an AMSR video for photographers, you’ve come to the right place. After their first video, guys from Lensrentals have recorded the sounds of 11 more popular DSLR and mirrorless cameras. Let’s hear them and discuss the worst and the best ones.
If there’s such a thing as ASMR video for photographers, this must be it. Photographer Scott Graham has filmed “a video no one asked for,” yet it’s still amusing and very satisfying to watch. In about three minutes, he shares with you shutter sounds of 37 different cameras, mostly old film and digital models.
What does your camera sound when you press the shutter? Do you like what you hear? Guys from Lensrentals compared 16 of the most popular cameras from almost every major manufacturer. They include both DSLR and mirrorless models tested for something not exactly common: shutter sound. The team ranked them from best to worst. So, let’s hear the sounds, see their ranking, but also make our own verdict.
The rule of thumb when shooting video is to use a shutter speed that’s double your frame rate. But there’s a simple “hack” that opens up so many creative possibilities. In this video from Advancing Your Photography, filmmaker Fletcher Murray shares a shutter speed trick you can pull off with Sony mirrorless cameras. It will let you get creative and add a new dimension to your videos.
