I also thought about looking at the camera preferences file to see if perhaps I could edit it and disable it from there but I don't know if I want to do that much monkeying around...
You could try replacing the file with a identical file that has no sound on it. Just a silent sound file with the same exact name.
Like you suspect there is probably another file somewhere. Someone might know the specific location. You could search XDA maybe. I'd find you the answer except that I am not near my PC.
