Making the AF more silent, is it possible?


New Member
I'm probably gonna buy myself a GRD in the near future.

I've read that the AF is not very silent, is it possible to reduce the AF-noise in some way?
The GRD2 should be very nice, but I don't like the fact that NR can't be turned off completely for jpg.
And it would also costs me more than what i want to spend on a compact.
Hi Schaki and welcome here!

The only way how to make the GRD silent is to use Manual, Snap, or Infinity focus mode. There is no chance to make the camera silent in AF modes.
As for NR in GRDII, it's not possible to turn the NR completely OFF..not yet. But you can always use RAW, which is now very fast to save.
