Camera shutter sound

How Loud is a Camera Shutter?

How loud is a camera? Or more specifically, how loud is a camera shutter when we take a photo? And has anything changed from old vintage medium format cameras through to today’s digital cameras?

Camera noise is just one of the many things you can measure with a B&K 2245 Sound Level Meter. B&K 2245 Sound Level Meter is available in 4 versions, each designed with specific features for measuring and controlling exhaust noise, environmental noise or workplace noise, or for supporting a more general measuring need.

We measured camera shutter noise with our B&K 2245 Class 1 Sound Level Meter equipped with our mobile Enviro Noise Partner App – see what came out of it in this video.
