Configuring Silent Shooting (EOS 5D Mark IV)

Solution

You can suppress the camera noise when performing viewfinder shooting and Live View shooting.

Configuring the Setting for Viewfinder Shooting

1. Turn on the camera.
  • Set the camera's power switch to <ON>.

2.Press the < > button.

3. While looking at the LCD panel or viewfinder, turn the < > dial to select [ ] or [ ].

: Silent single shooting You can perform single shooting while suppressing the mechanical sound during viewfinder shooting. This cannot be set for Live View shooting.
: Silent continuous shooting You can shoot continuously at approx. 3.0 shots/sec. maximum while suppressing the mechanical sound during viewfinder shooting (as compared to the [ ] setting). This cannot be set for Live View shooting.

IMPORTANT
If [ ] or [ ] is set, the time lag from when you press the shutter button completely until the picture is shot will be longer than standard.

Configuring the Setting for Live View Shooting

1. Turn on the camera.
  • Set the camera's power switch to <ON>.

2. Select the shooting mode.
  • Turn the Mode Dial to select the Creative Zone shooting mode (P/Tv/Av/M/B).

3. Press the < MENU > button to display the menu screen.

4. Press the < > button and turn the < > dial to select the [ ] tab.

5. Turn the < > dial to select [ Silent LV Shoot. ], then press < >.

6. Turn the < > dial to select [Mode 1] or [Mode 2], then press < >.

Mode 1 Mechanical sound during shooting is suppressed, compared with viewfinder shooting. Continuous shooting is also possible.
Mode 2When the shutter button is pressed completely, only one shot will be taken. While you keep holding down the shutter button, the camera operation will be suspended. Then when you return to the shutter button’s halfway position, the camera operation will resume. The release sound at the moment of shooting can thereby be minimized. Even if continuous shooting is set, only a single shot will be taken.
DisableWith the drive mode set to [ ] and [AF operation] set to [One-Shot AF], you can shoot up to the maximum continuous shooting speed of approx. 7.0 shots/sec.
Be sure to set it to [Disable] if you use a TS-E lens (other than those listed in the [NOTE] below) for shifting or tilting the lens or if you use an extension tube. If [Mode 1] or [Mode 2] is set, the standard exposure may not be obtained, or an irregular exposure may result.

IMPORTANT
  • With [Mode 2] set, continuous shooting will not work even if you set the drive mode to [ ] or [ ].
  • If you use flash with the flash mode set to E-TTL II/E-TTL autoflash, shutter release will be performed by the same internal operation mechanism as with viewfinder shooting. Therefore, shooting while suppressing the mechanical sound will not be possible (regardless of the [Silent LV shoot.] setting).
  • When using a non-Canon flash unit, set it to [Disable]. The flash will not be fired if it is set to [Mode 1] or [Mode 2].
  • If [Mode 2] is set and you use a remote controller, the operation will be the same as with [Mode 1].
NOTE
With the TS-E17mm f/4L or TS-E24mm f/3.5L II lens, you can use [Mode 1] or [Mode 2].
