If you’re a shutterbug, you’re going to love the fact that there’s an entire YouTube channel dedicated to just one tiny part of the photographic experience – the sound of the shutter.

Shutterlog encourages users to submit videos of the exact moment when they’re clicking the shutter on their cameras.

Putting together an awesome compilation of submissions, with both modern and vintage cameras, Shutterlog have created a rendition made entirely of shutter sounds.

As Peta Pixel points out, this isn’t the first example of turning that delightful shutter sound into a cool beat, but it would certainly seem to be the first crowd sourced example.
