    Default Annoying sound effects - can I turn them off

    Is it possible to turn off the motorwind sound effect in the E-500? I have a feeling no, but wanted to check.

    Hi Alex,

    is it really a sound effect?

    I don't have an E-500 but several other E-bodies and the the shutter mechanism does have a winding sound which could remind of a classic film winder. It is most prominent from the E-1 and least from the E-3, so my guess is that it is an inherent sound of your E-500 - not an added effect.

    Cheers, Jens.
