The Moviecam SL is a nice camera, but a little loud compared to a Moviecam Compact

(25 dB for SL, versus <20dB for the Compact.)  It is much lighter, and useful for Steadicam

work. (3.5 Kg for the SL without magazine; 6.3 Kg for the Compact w/o magazine). 

 

Hope this helps.

I have a MOVIECAM compact if you're interested. I bought two and am keeping one for myself, but the other is up for sale.

What about a Moviecam SL in 2 perf? Is it significantly quieter than 4 perf? I too have been considering this camera.
