A quick reminder to all of you who shoot events. Make sure, if you would, that you turn off the focus beep in your camera when you are shooting things that like or need silence. Music recitals, weddings, chess: you will be severely dealt with. Turn off the focus beep and you will hardly be noticed.
The same goes for the beep in Nikon i-TTL/CLS flashes.
And the same goes for the shutter: on Canon 1-series bodies you can turn the shutter down to a lower volume “(“silent mode”). It’s not silent but it is less intrusive.
All part of staying out of the way!
