Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Silent modes, part of Up and Running with the Canon 6D.
…If you've ever been around a lot of cameras at once,…you may have noticed the sound of them clicking.…This can be distracting, or…even downright annoying, particularly in certain circumstances.…Like, maybe you're shooting a wedding ceremony, or you're in a quiet museum.…Fortunately, Canon offers two silent shutter release modes.…The silent single shooting release mode is just like the normal single shooting mode.…It takes a single picture, except the mirror in the camera doesn't click…back into place, until you've released the shutter button.…
This is great because it gives you more control over when the mirror closes and…makes that click.…Additionally, the silent mode will take all of the beeps and…camera feedback sound and turn them off.…The silent continuous shooting release mode will shoot up to…three frames per second.…Overall camera noise is also generally reduced.…I leave these two options off.…Now, if I'm shooting a particular situation, I could turn them on.…Maybe it's a theatrical performance or I'm dealing with a really shy subject.…
