    For which camera/lens? If you do a lot of this work maybe a reason to switch over to film - the Konica Hexar AF is practically silent shutter. The Olympus RC is also very quiet leaf-shutter. Cheaper and small !

    Define "affordable".

    The Jacobson Sound Blimp is the industry standard and many directors won't let you shoot on their set with anything else: what

    I can't help but feel that for $1000 it should allow you a bit more control than just the shutter button and an LCD window.

    I've always thought those things were way overpriced... It's basically just a Pelican case with some foam in it...

    I think to be able to use more buttons, it would have to be custom made for each camera body. Much like an underwater housing.

    The shutter release is in more or less the same place on any body, but all of the other buttons tend to be in different places...

    O|||||||O - exactly and for $1000 I'd expect them to go that extra mile to have controlable buttons. However surely they would just need a smart remote control to plug into the camera to an external set of muted buttons on the box itself.
