Not sure if anyone has found a way of doing this. I did a search but couldn't find one here that worked for me. If anyone is still interested this is what I did. Firstly, I realize the sound is there for a good reason, and I certainly respect that, but there are some events like a Christening, where a loud "CLICK" can be distracting.
You're phone will need to be rooted. Install 'Root explorer' or something similar, open it and navigate to System -Media -Audio - UI. Scroll down the list, ignore Camera_Click.ogg, & Camera_Click_Short.ogg, renaming these won't do a thing, keep going until you come to Shutter.ogg, this is the one you need to rename. Deleting the .ogg file extension should be enough but I renamed it 'Shut' just to be sure. That's it, I don't think you even need to reboot afterwards. When you want the sound back just go in and re name it.

or you can use one of the alternative spy apps. Or even better adjust your sound settings using a sound control or profile app which gives you access to the system sound level.

I don't think there is an option for that, in a lot of countries it is a legal requirement for the camera to be audible, something to do with covert/candid photographs being illegal without consent of the subject.

so the only way would be to disable the sound through editing system files.

Saying that though, if you have found an option to just turn off the sound, maybe you could share its location and path to it?

Personally I like hearing some sound when I use the camera. What I ended up doing was going through the other sound bytes in the folder choosing one I liked that was a little more subtle & simply made a copy of it and renamed it Shutter.ogg. (Still keeping the original Shutter file inactive.) As for turning the volume down, it doesn't work on my phone. In-fact nothing I tried apart from this worked.

There are some apps that offer that option, but they generally don't tend to work when you do use the camera.

UspyCam.

As stated the alternative to that is to use an app where you have access to the systems sound level and use that to turn off system sound, which will work for some but not for others.

Not sure where you live or where you got your phone, but the USA is part of the country list for mandatory audible shutter sounds. Please take a screenshot if this is the case. No disrespect to you, but I dont believe you.

@ chiefrocka - are you sure about that.

I have been with android from the start and i have never seen a phone with a seperate shutter noise level option.

This has been a PITB right from the begining and as a general rule all the camera apps always make a sound. Some do offer the option to turn it off or change the sound, however this generally doesn't work anyway.

Hence the spy camera apps - which change the way they work so there is no shutter noise. During the froyo stage it is possible that there might have been an option as spy cameras were less frequent during that time, but as I haven't seen an increase in them, nor options for taking away the noise I don't think their reduction has anything to do with it.

Perhaps you are using a dev rom which allows that as a switch?

Other Android phones I owned did have that option(droid eris, Droid, Incredible, incredible 2)
However, the S3 does NOT have this option in the settings. That is why I ask for a screenshot.
I do understand the shutter is mute when the device is mute. Just want to see this option on your device.
