So, here's the normal D800 shutter sound. It's very nice. I really like the shutter sound on this camera. I can go quieter than that though. If I switch over here from Single Shot mode to the big Q, which is Quiet mode, I get this. So, notice what's happened here. First, the shutter sound is a little bit quieter, but also the mirror has not come back down yet. It doesn't actually come back down until I let go of the button, and the way it comes down is a little bit softer. So, if I'm shooting in a performance or in a museum, or stealthily somehow, and I want to keep my camera quiet, this is a way that I can get it to make a little bit less noise.
Note that this will slow me down. I'm not going to be able to shoot quite as quickly because there is going to be an extra little delay between when the shutter closes and when the mirror comes down.
