Via Kottke, though arguably—patently less satisfying that the mechanical nuance and engineered lag of these various film cameras punctuating the background music, we are exposed to the sounds of shutters all the time, albeit artificial sound-effects (an audible skeuomorphic cue) often muted out of respect for one’s fellow paparazzi but in some jurisdictions unable to be silenced lest the subject not know a picture’s being taken. Despite the omission of the Leica model, we agree with the overall sentiment that the sound of a closing aperture is like blowing kisses.
