Eliminate shutter sounds during shooting (Silent Photography).




Eliminate vibrations produced by the shutter. Use for landscapes, still lifes, and other static subjects. Use of a tripod is recommended.

  • Selecting [On] for [Silent photography] does not completely silence the camera. Camera sounds may still be audible, for example during autofocus or aperture adjustment, in the latter case most noticeably at apertures smaller (i.e., at f-numbers higher) than f/5.6.

  • Flash photography is disabled.

  • Long-exposure noise reduction is disabled.

  • There is no limit to the number of photos that can be taken in a single burst, regardless of the option chosen for Custom Setting d2 [Max. continuous release].

  • The electronic shutter is used, regardless of the option selected for Custom Setting d5 [Shutter type].

  • Regardless of the settings selected for [Beep options] in the setup menu, beeps will not sound when the camera focuses or while the self-timer is in operation.

  • Enabling silent photography changes the frame advance rates for continuous release modes (Frame Advance Rate).


Disable silent photography.
