Your iPhone’s Shutter Sound Is a Canon

For Nikon devotees who use iPhones, we have some bad news for you: Every time you take a picture, the sound effect is that of a Canon!

To be specific, the sound comes from a 1970’s Canon AE-1 film SLR camera owned by Jim Reekes, a sound engineer for Apple in the early days. Recently, Reekes sat down with CNBC and revealed that it was his personal camera that is used for the iPhone camera sound (or Apple computer screenshot). 

“Any time you take a photo with the iPhone, it’s my camera, which kind of freaks me out because, even to this day when I hear people take photos with their iPhone, I look to see who stole my camera,” Reekes told CNBC.

You’ll never hear that sound the same way again. Watch the full interview here
