One thing I really like about the D5100 is that it's a very quiet camera.…Take a listen to this. Ah! (camera shooting)…I mean that's just a quiet shutter sound.…However, I can get it even quieter…if I go into my Release mode menu and change it to Quiet shutter release. And…they give you a little hint here.…This is what you want to do when you're at the symphony.…When you're illegally taking pictures at the symphony, you want it in Quiet mode.…So dial that in.…Now when I press the shutter button, the camera is a little bit quieter.…
It's manipulating how it opens and closes the separate shutter curtains.…There is a little bit of a performance hit for this.…The camera will not burst as quickly. It's just generally slower to fire off its shutter.…So you really don't want to leave it there unless you need the quiet performance.…Most of the time you'll want to stay with single frame, which is still a very…quiet shutter sound.…
