Never occurred to me that a modern mirrorless, from Sony no less, would not have an electronic silent shutter. Had assumed it was a standard feature …

Well, I found out to my cost, that the Sony a6000, does NOT have a silent mode when I took it to the “Clearlakes Chorale” concert last weekend.

I planned to be at the concert 30 minutes early so as to get our preferred front-row pews. So I was going to set silent mode during the wait — I never having looked for silent mode previously on the a6000.

I couldn’t find it. There was an ‘audio’ option but that didn’t silence the shutter. I went through all the menus multiple times. NADA. I was amazed. Thought I was missing something.

I had, however, taken my trusty Nikon P900 as well and that did have a silent mode. So that was fine. I used the Nikon …

But, the Sony a6500 I plan to get in the next 8 weeks does have silent mode, as does the a6300.
