Martin Pinsonnault about
Sonomar Collection: Cameras

Bring definition and authenticity to your sound design with the Sonomar: Cameras collection. This extensive library of camera sound effects includes the unaltered mechanical sounds of 250 vintage and modern cameras, including a rare 1901 model. Find shutter, button, lever, lens and flash sounds from a range of Minolta, Olympus, Canon and Nikon cameras, both film and digital.

This comprehensive library combines Martin’s love of photography with his passion for sound design. For six months, they methodically recorded and catalogued 250 cameras, capturing subtle sounds at different speeds to cover the full mechanical range of each camera. Their efforts resulted in the largest library of camera sound effects available.

These comprehensive, high-quality sound effects, which include mechanical actions such as flashes, cranks, button noises, zooms, and lever squeaks, are impeccably recorded and well isolated for easy editing and searching. In addition to adding realism to any camera scene, these sounds are also perfect for creative sound design. The unique sonic properties of the various cameras reflect the evolution of technology over the 20th century, and the high-resolution recordings are perfect for pitching and processing to add texture and character to any project.
