Ok I have a fair few cameras knocking about, some quiet some not so. I have been using my Nex C3 over the past week, and thoroughly enjoy using it, however one thing that has struck me is how loud it is when you either fire a single shot or use the panoramic mode. I was in a church taking shots of the stained glass window, every time I fire the camera at least 2 or 3 people looked round. Did you take a picture? Who! me? Nar it was him over there. (you know one of those silent conversations you have with people) The question is, why is something so small and with out a mirror so loud?
