Hi all, ive got a shoot to do on monday which is kool, but ive hit a snagg.
im working behind the scenes on a film set, and need to be as silent as possable! Does anybody know if you can stop shutter noise without buying a shutter box for 450.00?
Im using a nikon d300

As far as I know - no - which is why every one uses a shutterbox and you really do need to be as quiet as possible - when they call SILENCE ON SET they MEAN it

Yer ive done lots of live work before but its alot further away from the action so noise doesnt matter so much.

Your normally allowed to shoot during rehearsals but when it comes to the take itself then no.

If you haven't got a dedicated sound blimp then your out of luck.

Try padding out a rain hood for your camera and use that, it supresses the noise very well.
