    Only if you have root at this point. This thread tells you how to do it. Holy crap, how do you turn off the camera sound!?!? - xda-developers

    Make sure to read pages 4 and 5. That's where they start to really discuss how to do it. Also even though the camera sound is gone the autofocus sound remains. It seems to be located in the camera.apk which is tougher to modify.

    I downloaded the file and it works. The autofocus makes no sound if you use the hard button. If you use the soft button on the screen, it beeps twice when it attains focus. ...but even that's better than that horrible CLICK-CLACK of the shutter noise.

    [edit] never mind. I'm in the wrong forum. Duh. Sorry 'bout that. It works for the Photon the way I describe.

    Is this a gingerbread thing about the shutter sound.

    My phone is in the mail, so I can't test it for myself, but what if you go to settings>sound>volume and lower the system sound?

    Yep, no settings in the menu to take it off. Don't know why not.

    Back in the hay day of the dumb phone I thought it was required that users not be able to turn off the shutter sounds, on account of wackos quietly snapping upskirt shots of passers by. On my iPhone and evo though it was easy to mute, so i guess that rule fizzled, til now :)
