Camera sounds

A couple of members of the Vintage Camera Collectors group persuaded me to concentrate on where my two main hobbies (photography and audio recording) meet, and record the sounds of some of my cameras.

Quite a lot of my cameras currently have film in them so I started with just a small selection. Unfortunately all the motor-drive cameras and my Super-8 camera are tied up with film. All of the Canon A-series have the same shutter so I only recorded the Canon AV-1.

In most of these clips I fired the camera a couple of times at ¹/60 and then again at 1″. It sounds like my Pellix is running very fast!

These clips were recorded with a Sontronics STC-1 condenser microphone. Next time I would probably do this in stereo with two microphones.
