The D1 has both the Electronic shutter which is Fast and Quiet but also has the Mechanical shutter, then Nikon walked away from the El.shutter , for several reasons, shutter quietness can be a concern, yet perhaps a noisy shutter has tecnical benefits ?...All my Big D camera`s are noisy, but the Kodak SlrN , which is based on a model 80 I believe , has a rather Quiet shutter , although Not rated as sturdy as the noisy ones from the pro camera `s,..I`ve allways wondered why Nikon did not impliment magnets , like in the Olympus OM 1 to slow down the shutter curtains ,and thereby minimise noise levels considerably.
