The only way I know of, which I'll be the first to admit isn't pretty, is to replace the camera sound files in /system/media/audio/ui with blank versions. Of course, you will need to have rooted your phone to be able to do this.

I assume the fact that this isn't an option is some daft attempt to limit users' ability to take surreptitious photographs but that is just my cynical guess.
