Its pretty easy to hear the difference between the Canon Mark III's shutter modes but to actually see the difference is a little trickier, that's where our Phantom HD Gold slow motion camera comes in!

We set the Phantom up at 1500 fps, the Canon Mark III at 1/50th of a second and here are the results.

You can clearly see the mirror slow down on its way up and again on its way down before it touches the other parts of the camera. Compared to the normal mode where you can actually see the mirror bouncing off the inside of the camera as it moves.
Silent mode reduces the frame rate to 3 frames per second but the advantages of your mirror not bouncing around inside your camera are obvious.
