Here’s a quick recording of the different shutter sounds from the new Canon 5D Mark III camera.  The sounds are coming from a 5D3 with a 50mm f/1.4 lens.  There’s also an older 5D Mark II at the end of the video for comparison.  The recording was captured on a 5D Mark II with a Rode SVM microphone.

The various modes are: Single Shooting, High Speed Continuous, Low Speed Continuous, Silent Single Shooting, and Silent Continuous Shooting.

Meh, the audio was very directed.  I think it is too hard to tell the difference in the video.  I've read that there is a nice distinctive difference though.

While listening to high-speed continuous I'm wondering what shutter speed was selected.

It was 1/40.  I'll throw up a new video later at different speeds.  Any requests for speeds and lenses?  1/200, 1/1000, 1/2000 on a 50mm, 70-200mm maybe?

Definitely want a higher shutter speed. It sounds very slow at 1/40. Make sure the audio is manually set, so it's not automatically changing the levels. Magic Lantern may be necessary.

I have seen several videos now - Am I the only one who thinks the MarkII sounds better?

Does anyone know what is actually happening with the "Silent" shutter?  Is there a physical difference in the actions?  Why would you not want it to always be in silent mode?

Don't forget also Mirror Locked up  shooting.

In person, it's an appreciably quieter sound for the silent shooting mode.

In shooting silent - near unlimitless shooting - the buffer doesn't really fill up.
In high speed normal shooting - you can rattle a dozen or so shots off.

Using a 600x CF card made a difference in comparison to a 95MB/s SDHC card - the high speed CF card does replenish the buffer faster - once the camera's hit buffering it'll let you take 1-2 more shots then pause and repeat quicker.

Any disadvantage to using silent shutter? Affect shutter life or anything? I'd probably use it permanently as I always have my camera in single shot mode.

To me, it sounds awfully like the 7D shutter... personally like the 5dm2 sound better.

Okay, just made another quick video on my lunch break.   :)

Video at higher shutter speeds (up to 1/8000) with the 5D3 and 28-200mm f/2.8L:

That's the same video as before. ;)

Question about silent shooting mode: is the shutter release slower in silent shooting, or is it the same speed? Notice any difference in the delay?

Oops, I updated the video link.  :)

Yes, the shutter is slower (3fps max) in silent shooting mode.  (expand the shutter section at http://cpn.canon-europe.com/content/education/technical/inside_canon_eos_5d_mark_iii.do for more info)
