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.
Ace says that he had this idea for years and now he finally put it together. He teamed up with his buddy Patch who lent him some cameras to shoot in the video. He starts with an Argus Argoflex Seventy-Five from 1949. The last camera in the series is the Olympus Trip XB3 from circa 1996. That sound of a click with film rewinding really brought back memories for me!
