    AFAIK in South Korea (where Samsungs are made) it is illegal to have a camera device that doesn't make a shutter sound so they all ship with no stock way to disable it. This prevents covert photography and IIRC is in response to privacy concerns.

    Some custom roms have the ability to silence it, but you should make sure you are using anything like that in accordance with your local laws.:)
