K-7 vs. Nikon D3 shutter noise sound off!

Hear for yourself.

Sounds good to me!

Quieter, sleeker, although sounds SLOWER than the D3 by that video?!?

Assuming the video is playing at real time, it sounds to me like the K-7 is around the 4-4.5fps mark...

I dunno how the Nikon was setup, but it's supposed to do 9fps full frame and 11 cropped - it ought to sound faster than the K-7 .

nice video but nikon d3 isnt exactly quiet, its quite loud. the canons are more quiet so it would be more interesting to hear the comparison there.

I'd like to hear the K-7's shutter noise compared to the Canon's "silent/qiuet mode" that's available in the 1D series I believe. I wonder how much quieter the "silent/quiet mode" is.
