Re: Silent Shutter

Shooting menu 2, scroll down to item 5, anti shock/silent, and turn it on. You could always read the new manual for firmware four which is available for download!

Re: Silent Shutter

I think the quickest way is either to go to the drive setting in the SCP and change to the single square with the heart next it or do the same starting with the drive function button on the front of the on/off switch.

Re: Silent Shutter

Re: Silent Shutter

Its now working -


Using this:

Initial activation lives in Shooting Menu 2 (second tab down, with camera icon and 2). Go to Shooting Menu 2. Go to the Anti-Shock/Silent entry and go into it (right), selecting Silent. Then go into that, and make sure that Off is NOT selected - instead go to the entry below for Silent, which also shows a timing. Unless you want a delay between pressing the shutter release and firing, set this to 0 sec and make sure you exit with OK, not Menu, which is a sort of "cancel and back out" button at this point. Once you have done this once, it makes sure that the option to have Silent Shooting is available (all these instructions also refer to enabling EFCS too, which is the Anti-Shock 0 sec setting, and it is the nearest neighbour in this part of the menu. EFCS shows a diamond prefix, Silent shows a heart. I can't see any point to leaving these un-enabled, unless you really want a very short set of options for the Drive Mode, coupled with the inability to use these two useful features easily).

Once you've set up these modes like this, they will appear in the the list of drive modes. (http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/56468214)
