gee Mark,

Did you get a silencer with yours? I've never had one (that was three and
sold) that didn't scare the hell out of me that it was shredding the inside
of the camera and or you could hear it a mile away.

Totally eliminated the unobtrusiveness of the M camera's near silent click!

I guess it depends on what and where you are shooting as to whether the
sound element is of any relevance. I mean trying to shoot in a quiet board
room with high rollers sitting around a table in near silent conversation
and the M winder is as usless as wet buffalo chips in a fire.

If ever the phrase "Run Silent, Run Deep!" had any meaning it sure didn't
apply to the M camera with the winder driving it.
