Chris Marquardt

Chris posits the question that if a mirrorless camera doesn't have a shutter mirror, why does it make a sound? Chris says it does because it's expected to and it's just a recording. Much like the iPhone, which has a recording of the Canon AE1 as its shutter sound. But today's mirrorless models also have the option of turning the sound off. There is also some jurisdictions where a camera is required by law to make sound when taking a picture. Chris likes the shutter sound though, because he will take a picture, and then wait a half second to take another. That way he gets a more candid portrait of his subject.

Don't forget our current assignment - "Shoe". Take a photo of, about or otherwise concerning the concept of "shoe" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "shoe" as well! And if Chris likes it, it could end up on next week's photo contest review segment!
