What sound does your digital camera make?
I am currently working on a theoretical design proposal that would use sound informatively on a digital camera. For example, instead of just beeping when your battery is low, the camera may make a certain noise when there isn't enough light and make a contrasting sound when there is too much. I wondered if people could offer suggestions of other instances where information from a digital camera could be given in sound. Or examples of their own cameras where sound is used? Or where they would like sound to be used?
I understand this is strange as cameras are obviously visual but I am working on a paper that highlights design interfaces that have no or limited information given sonically.
Thanks for any feedback.

That said, I suppose it's interesting using sound instead of a visual clue. But I would also think it would be quite annoying to others... maybe if there were a headphone jack... You might laugh, but I'd rather see someone with headphones plugged into the camera than listen to a dog barking and a chicken clucking (I really don't like those cameras that have the odd "shutter" sounds)Nikon D600 | D90 | Sony NEX-3

I wish my DSLR made no sound at all when I click the shutter
The shutter mechanism sound gets unwanted attention from creatures that I am trying to captureSteve

Likewise mute all the beeps.
An interesting concept, audio feedback. Perhaps a gradual tone going from low to high indicating under or over exposure. Rather just look at the meter though!Seeker of the Peace, Part-time Chandelier Cleaner, a Legend in his own Time, Oppressor of Champions, Soldier of Fortune, World Traveller, Bon Vivant, Defender of Reason, All-round Good Guy, Casual Hero, Philosopher.

+1 here - silence for me. The beep is a
ALTHOUGH - I wear glasses and I can barely see the info strip in the view finder. This makes it impossible to spot any warning lights flashing.
That would not convince to install a sound in its place however - it may for some.
