I just bought my first camera. A Pentax k1000. I really want to eliminate my shutter sound or just the sound of the mirror slapping. What do you suggest

There is no option to silence the Pentax K1000 mirror. The K1000 does not have an option for mirror lock-up. You would want to look at a SLR that has mirror lock-up as an option or for a camera that does not have a mirror.

  • In low-light, lock-up could be simulated using bulb mode and some external object acting as shutter. But mirror lock-up would not really eliminate the sound, just change its timing. There is an option though, putting the camera inside a sound blimp. – Imre Oct 28 '15 at 6:30
