Flapping mirrors

Just thought I’d share a quick one with you.  I was watching on YouTube the press conference given by President Barak Obama and President-elect Donald Trumb.  You can watch the video here.  You can barely hear President Obama speaking with the sound of all those DSLR flapping mirrors.

Several photographers firing away with Nikon D5’s and Canon 1Dx’s in a small room like the oval office creates an infernal racket.

More power to the SLT!  No mirror to go flapping up and down.  Thumbs up to mirrorless cameras that have a silent mode.

Personally, I found it rude that the photographers created such a racket.  I know they’re just trying to make a living, but they should seriously think about more location appropriate equipment.  Maybe the new A99 ii?  Or something like my A77 ii?

Take a listen to the video, it’s pretty impressive.
