An old analog Canon camera. Clicking of the shutter and winding of the
film. There's no camera in the film. There's a very annoying 560Hz ping
sound after the shutter closes. Recorded in the MTG studio with a
Neumann U87a large diaphragm microphone.

    funny, when I recorded some of my old cameras I also noticed how much of a tonal 'ping' came from the shutter mechanism

    Thanks this is nice, I may use it in my next kiteboarding video, if so I'll post it.
    Just remembered I have a twin reflex (Yashica) around here, some quiet night I'll record that and post.

    Perfect. Analog sounds are of quite big use in our digital times. :)

    Thanks for this excellent sound, including the ping!
