I want Silent Shutter mode and would appreciate a list of all Canon DSLRs that offer it. I'd prefer to stay APS-C.

Thanks


Hi Joe,
Thanks for your questions about Canon APS-C DSLRs with a silent shutter. What you want is an electronic shutter, where there are no moving parts. Perfect for shooting weddings, or a quiet contest like billiards or golf. Having a silent electronic shutter on your Canon also can improve on image sharpness for long exposures because there is no vibration caused by mirror bounce.

Look for a list no farther than the Canon 90D. It was one of the reasons I skipped over the 80D and purchased a 90D.

To activate the silent shutter with the 90D, you need to be in LIVE VIEW mode to get it to show up in the menu.

I'm a huge fan of the 90D for many reasons, including its top notch video capabilities, fast frame rate, and it's price point. You can obtain a shutter speed as fast as 1/16,000 second with the electronic shutter active.

Joe, I hope this answer on a Canon silent shutter was helpful. I'm curious to know if you're opposed to looking at a Canon APS-C mirrorless.

Thanks,
Bruce
