Several years ago, I used MagicLantern with Canon EOS 600D/700D cameras to shoot timelapses (1 minute interval). But I wasn't able to achieve a silent timelapse. Even though the camera was set to have mirror up (viewfinder was set to be on the display, not to the ocular when the mirror is down), the camera for some reasons felt the need to flip the mirror up and down upon each picture taken, making a noise. Totally superfluous mirror movements, I never understood why, the mirror could stay up the whole time. And perhaps the shutter was the perpetrator there too, in place where perhaps some silent "software shutter" could have been used.
Has there been any progress since, has anyone achieved silent timelapses through MagicLantern, when the mirror is kept held up, and possibly also the physical shutter kept still?
