Iím working on a project about Dorothea Lange. She used a Graflex Series D camera. I would like to know what sound the camera made when the shutter was pressed and an exposure made. Thanks,

The shutters on Graflex SLRs, no matter which model or format, sound the same. There's a video on YouTube demonstrating the use of a Graflex. The shutter is tripped several times beginning at about 3:00,

The one in the video looks a little different from the one Lange used.

But, I assume the shutter sound is the same?

The camera in the youtube video is a RB Auto.
The camera Dorothea is holding in the photo on Lommen's site is a
Series D.

All Graflex SLR's are a variation on a theme.

Are the sounds of the shutter similar? If not, is there something you can compare it to?

Graflex SLR's were made in 2 1/4 x 3 1/4, 3 1/4 x 4 1/4, 4x5, and 5x7 formats.
A 5x7 might be a little louder than a 4x5, a 4x5 a little louder than a 3x4, a 3x4 a little louder than a 2x3 but otherwise they are the SAME.
