To play a symphony using a saxophone or a piano is a very common thing. What about playing it using a DSLR camera? Doesn’t it sound so unique and interesting?


Around 14 Nikon cameras worth ten thousands of dollars are particularly arranged and operated to create a symphony. It is Benjamin Von Wong who got the crazy idea of creating music using Nikon DSLR cameras in a video project entitled “Nikon Symphony”.



The sounds are produced from several different functions in each camera. There is one created from Live View and camera shutter as well as recharging flash sound. The range of camera used in this project is also varied starting from Nikon D4 to D5200.


To create this 2 minutes long video, he is not alone. There are some Nikon Professional Services (NPS) and also Andrew Kesler, a composer, around to help him. It is mentioned that all the instruments used in this project is worth a total of 30.000 USD.


Von Wong confessed that he got the idea from a rival of Nikon camera which is Canon. Canon has created a video that shows a comparison of shutter sound of some different cameras. He states “we decided to make a better one (video)”.


The series involved in this video project are: Nikon D800E, Nikon D4, D700, D7100, D7000, D800, D3, D3s, D5200, D600, and SB-900. And this is it, the final video they create.
