NEX7 - make it silent !!!

Is there a feature to make the Nex7 silent? That is to silence the annoying shutter noise? One good attribute of Leica X1 is that it is virtually silent with no shutter sound at all. Is Nex7 shutter sound electronic? or real? ... it is a mirror less design so it should be silent. Right?

Thank you for your post and welcome to the forums.

Unfortunately there is no way to turn off the sound of the shutter going off. The camera still uses a shutter. If you go into the menu and select Release w/o Lens, take the lens off you can observe the shutter in use.

Have you enabled electronic front curtain shutter? Shutter is much less noisy that way.
