Best "Silent" SLR or Mirrorless Camera?

19 February 2014 - 08:42 AM

Hi Gang,

Long time no see!

I've been shooting a lot of dance lately, and my 1DsIII body is just too darn loud to shoot in a packet theater.  It makes a HUGE click every time you fire the shutter.

I'd like to get a good quiet camera and have been looking for my options.  Of course I'll keep my 1D series + seacam for underwater use but would love to get a "quiet" camera that is also good for underwater use. 

To fill all those requirements I need something with:


A decent viewfinder

GREAT continuous autofocus

A fast stabilized sport lens (I currently shoot w/ the Canon 70-200 IS f2.8)

Good wideangle and fisheye options

Good housing available (I have Subal and Seacam ports but am willing to switch)

What are your thoughts?
