    In my new Galaxy S5 (G900 WB) in the Camera app, the shutter noise adjustment is NOT in the camera settings. Android version = 442.

    Upgraded to Android 5.0 and still the camera app does NOT have Shutter Sound in the prefs.

    Yet when examining a G900A with Android 5.0 and a G900T1 with Android 601 there is the selection to turn off and on shutter sound.

    Any ideas?

    Is there another camera app which will have the same or better prefs than the installed app, and also have the ability to silence the shutter sound while keeping the phone volume ON?

    Not all settings for camera are available if you have chosen to set your phone up in Easy Mode, (see first video), and you will need to set it to Standard Mode before going into Camera > Settings and scrolling down. See 2nd video at about 7' 05" in

    Thank you!! However, in STANDARD MODE the shutter sound preference icon is still not there. Anything else to do?

    How very odd that the Canadian carrier minority variant of the Galaxy S5, G900W8, does not appear to have the ability to turn off camera shutter sound. The latest stock Samsung software for this model is Android 6.0.1 on release QB2, although I cannot say whether this would address your issue or not. This leaves you with 3 other alternatives of either, turning your phone's volume down prior to taking photos, rooting your phone and disabling the shutter sound or by installing, as per Dannydet's suggestion, a 3rd party camera that does offer this facility, such as Open Camera.

    Think I'll just change to the model which has shutter sound off. Someone suggested that the absence of the shutter off pref is due to privacy laws in Canada. Sounds like BS since third party camera apps can do that, and the volume button works.

    on my USA Verizon models Note 4, and S5, the stock camera app can disable sound/clicking.
    and I have it turned off on purpose on all of them.

    when in a conference room, that click is way too loud even though folks obviously know you are taking pictures.
