Hi Guys, I tried the silent shooting modes on the 7D last night, mode 1 is supposed to be softer but still allows burst mode, I couldn't really tell, it may be a little softer but not so much I would say it would make a difference! Mode 2 is if I'm reading it right (yes I RTFM) supposed to hold the mirror return until the shutter is released to the half press position. This was not happening and I tried it several times to make sure I did hold the shutter release down!
I am wondering if there is a menu or custom setting of another option that disables this function? I am not using a 3rd party flash or any flash for that matter and that is all I could find that is listed as interacting with silent shoot.
Any help with this would be great as I am sure it is not working as it should, I have been wrong before though!
How much difference in volume should it make, tons, not a lot, not worth turning on, I don't know some one please enlighten me.
Thanks in advance.
