Default Camera click begone

Is there a way to turn off the camera click - apart from turning the sound off/muting?

Tap on the camera icon, tap on settings, tap on the icon that looks like a gear, scroll down to and tap on Shutter sound. Turn Shutter sound off.

Seriously? The Global version doesn't have this option? Is it grayed out or simply not there?

Freaky.

We're going to have to split up the Note 3 forum into different sub-forums. The global and even the different US carrier devices are just not the same at all, both software and hardware wise, I thought it was just carrier bloatware that would be different and the Exonys/S800 processor thing.

Yeah, on my G2 I'm able to turn it off but it prompts you beforehand to say that it may be illegal in certain jurisdictions. I imagine root would be the only way to do this if it's not available in stock.

I don't think that's EU legislation as it doesn't apply in the UK. I can't think of anything more absurd than having an electronic camera make a mechanical camera shutter sound unless it's for haptic reasons. And you've got plenty of evidence on screen for haptics.

I have those silly sounds turned off on all my cameras and no legislation has applied.

Camera clicks can spook some animals. Really stupid.

I'm actually surprised we can shut ours off here in the US. I could have sworn someone had passed some sort of anti-"up skirt" legislation a long time ago that required us to have a shutter sound. Yet, we can turn it off here.

We can? I am on Verizon and there is no option to turn off the shutter sound on mine under settings in the camera. Is it located somewhere else?

I don't see it either. If it's based off of System or Notification sounds, maybe a quick Tasker profile can be written. Mute the proper audio channel when in camera mode (good for video anyways!), and automatically unmute as soon as you leave the camera app? I can't imagine that'd be too difficult, though I don't think I'll have time to play with that for a few days.

The shutter sound is one of the most annoying things about the camera. And one of the main reasons I like to root my phones. My camera now makes no sounds at all.

I have my phone on silent at work so as not to annoy everyone else so when the sound is off it isn't an issue. When trying to sneak photos it could be an issue! LOL! I just don't understand why we don't have that choice.

I looked under Sound in the System Settings, I don't see anything there either.

Under camera settings, there are three tabs, one for the camera, video and one for general settings. Under the general tab, if you scroll towards the bottom it should be there. It is there on my Tmo version.

I don't think so. The Note 2 went strong, without having separate sub-forums and there were way more differences between the carrier variants.

Sprint is also in the group that has no way of turning the shutter sound off. Privacy law that Sprint is actively participating in.

@John248 There is no reason other than haptics that a fixed focal length digital camera need make any sound whatsoever.

Not there on Verizon either. Probably because many localities require a shutter sound by law.

Just for phones then? I've never come across a non-internal-mirror camera where you can't optionally turn the sound off. Obviously with an SLR, you've got mechanical noise anyway.

Got my Verizon GN3 rooted went to the same folders as with the GN2 and changed the necessary .ogg files to .bak, which silenced the camera on the GN2. No such luck with the GN3, I'm still getting the shutter sound

Here is the path and list of the .ogg files I renamed with Root Explorer:

System/Media/Audio/UI
Auto_Focus.ogg
Auto_Focus_Error.ogg
Cam_Start.ogg
Cam_Stop.ogg
Camera_Click.ogg
Camera_Click_Short.ogg
Camera_Empty.ogg
Camera_Focus.ogg
Camera_Timer.ogg
Camera_Timer_2sec.ogg
Lens_Flare_Lock.ogg
Lens_Flare_Unlock.ogg
Shutter.ogg
Shutter_Multiple.ogg
VideoRecord.ogg

Anyone have any ideas?

Yeah these four (identical sound) I replaced also and it still makes the noise (deleted the originals before pasting 1 second silent files with the same name as replacements, and this is after experimenting with renames and restarts/wipe camera app data...), so maybe Samsung embedded the noise in the Camera app as a late decision but left the now isolated sounds in the system?

Camera_Click.ogg
Camera_Click_Short.ogg
Shutter.ogg
Shutter_Multiple.ogg

We may need the camera app from the note 3 that shipped to a free country. (with the 4k recording option still)

Usually I wouldn't double post, but alas I have today just found that the camera no longer makes the noise when taking photos. I have no idea why this took 'time' to occur, instead of just a power off/on after replacing the files, but I'm glad it's sorted.

As of now the only way to get rid of sound is to go to your home screen and then turn sound to mute or Audio/off and then open the camera up after. Then there will be no sound for taking pictures. Seems like this is the only way for now.

Except for some - only some - US versions of the Note 3 where there is a camera mute button.

Maybe you misunderstood me, I was talking about the sound icon on the home button of which you should also have. If you mute that one first then there should be no sound when taking pictures.

It turns out that on some USA versions of the Note 3 you CAN mute the camera only. Try reading the thread.

For anyone who can't seem to get the shutter sound muted. There is an app that was developed and it seems to work really well so far. Root is NOT required....

[APP] Camera Mute [non-root] - xda-developers

I take no credit for this, just thought others might benefit from it.

Just downloaded it and it does work with the stock camera! I have A Better Camera installed as well but it doesn't work with that unless I am missing something.

Thanks MrClean for the find!!

I hadn't tried it with anything but the stock camera. Thanks for letting us know it doesn't work on other cameras.

Camera mute.

@MrClean Thanks. Problem solved. This works exactly as billed. My irritating, intrusive, unnecessary and rather silly Note 3 camera sound is banished.



I noticed on that xda thread that some Americans haven't realised the option to turn off the sound is out-of-the-box only available on some phones and not others.

Gotta love those XDA folks! Majority of the apps developed through the developers that contribute heavily over there have been awesome, from my experiences.

Confirming that this works on the Sprint Galaxy Note 3 (for both rear and front facing camera)! If only it had been developed when I first got the Galaxy Note 2! Now, I can delete Camera Magic.

I'm still way too intimidated to post on there regularly. Too many tech guys WAY more knowledgeable than I could ever dream of being, but many of the apps that I support heavily, started over there. The Teslacoil developers posted Widgetlocker on the XDA forums, prior to it being available on the Play store, so the amount of themes that had been created were so overwhelming, it was mind boggling...but those guys are the reason I chose Nova Prime, when I finally had a phone above ICS (w/ the Note 2).

There are a bunch of others I've installed through there first, prior to the apps making their way to the app store as well, but I can't remember which ones exactly.

does anyone know how to make the screen shutter when the pic is taken so that you get a visual cue that it has done it's thing? like what happens on the iPhone?

Default Shutter sound...

Is there a way to turn off the shutter sound on this, or am I completely overlooking something?

I had the same desire for my Verizon Galaxy Note 3. Some research indicated that the option to do this was disabled by some carriers, allegedly because someone decides it's their place to decide that you should not be able to use your phone's camera without people around you or being photographed by you knowing it. But really, it's stupid, because you could disable the sound anyway by muting the whole phone at once.

But then I found this hack, and it worked perfectly for me. It has disabled the camera shutter sound and that's all I wanted to be able to do

Glen L on XDA made a solution (although some have reported it doesn't work on the European Note 3)

Thanks, guys. That's the dumbest thing I've heard in a long time though. It should be left up to the consumer if they want their sound on or not.

Agreed but it's pretty easy to set the phone to vibrate or silent. FWIW the AT&T Note has shutter off/on in the settings.

It's a legal thing for most International versions of the Note 3 covering privacy issues. I'll merge this thread with a similar thread later tonight. Meanwhile check it out, there's another solution in it. Camera click begone
