Canon EOS 5Ds, Nikon D810, Pentax 645z, Sony a6000 and Olympus E-M5 II Shutter Sounds Comparison

Here is a quick comparison video of Canon EOS 5Ds, Nikon D810, Pentax 645z, Sony a6000 and Olympus EM5 II shutter sounds.

Photographer Davin Lavikka published a 49-sec video on his Youtube channel to compare the shutter sounds of the Pentax 645Z, Canon 5Ds, Nikon D810, Olympus OM-D E-M5 II, and Sony a6000 cameras.

As a result we can say the Olympus OM-D E-M5 II can shoot 1/16000 with a silent shutter mode using an electronic shutter, and it’s absolutely silent.
