Default Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Camera Shutter Sound?

Is there ANY WAY at all to disable this?

I've determined at this point that it is OS enforced, as Camera ZOOM FX couldn't disable it.

But is there any workaround (that doesn't involve rooting) that would tell the phone to just shut up?

I've tried turning all of the volume settings down to 0% and silent mode. The shutter sound still plays in both Camera FX and the out-of-the-box camera app.

Any suggestions?

N.B. Again... I really would prefer not to root my phone. I bought a warranty so...

You can install this app to take a picture with no sound.

Uva Silent Widget Camera Free

However, the resolution is pretty low. If you want to use the stock camera with no sound, you have to root.

Try just holding your finger over the speaker. You will be surprised how much that muffles the sound.
