My Canon 1100D is loudest of the all DSLRs in my friends group. I want to know if this is a problem with my camera or all 1100Ds are like this.
I have tested it as following:
- Tried different lenses. With any lens, it makes really loud noise. I know it is not the sound of lens aperture blades snapping back in place as I have tried it with manual lenses.
- Tried shooting with live view. The noise is less.
- Tried without attaching a lens. I can see the mirror slap at top of the frame really hard. There is a cushion like sponge there but it hardly makes any difference.
I know this has been discussed before in Can anything be done to reduce the shutter sound on my SLR?, so my question is mainly to people who have used Canon 1100D /Rebel T3. Is it louder for you? If it is not, should I take my camera to service center as I am worried about mirror slapping and breaking itself.
(I have compared sounds with Canon 350D,450D,550D,60D, Nikon D90.. comparing with 60D/D90 was foolishness, made me almost cry :D )
